For your transgressive viewing pleasure… Pot Zombies!
Like watching a looping ferris wheel, we get a steady cycle of glowing green faces spewing vomit and blood. Accompanied by punk rock, stoners, animation and RE-animation. But most of all, laughs. The Troma influence is apparent, and that’s even without the Lloyd Kaufman cameo.
The Necrophobia production gave us a sneak peak with an approximately 20 minute film presentation consisting mostly of behind the scenes yucks. However, there were brief clips of finished product along with a trailer… and wow! The documentary footage had you thinking this would be just another cheapie fright flick (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but the trailer and teaser bits from the actual film looked and sounded downright amazing. The director and producers then held a brief Q&A session, discussing filming in Houston haunted attractions during the off season and encouraged those in attendance to try their own hand at film making. After this presentation, I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for Squid Boy, and I recommend you do the same.
We also caught Teenage Bikini Vampire. A short comedy about a vampire family with a teen daughter who of course wants to be nothing like her parents or younger siblings who stalk for blood at night. She just wants to be able to have fun in the sun.
