"Atomic Brain Invasion blasts of on October 2nd .
A small New England town circa 1956 is the setting for Richard Griffin’s delightful homage to “B” sci-fi cinema, Atomic Brain Invasion! The feature marks Richard’s first foray into family-friendly science fiction, employing plot, character development, production value and gobs of goo-spewing alien brain creatures to stunning success. The director elaborated:
“For all of us involved, Atomic Brain Invasion was a wonderful way to make a horror film not only for adults to enjoy, but also to reach out to young people who were our age when we first discovered horror/sci-fi films in our pre-teens. Making a movie that will both entertain children and adults is always a risky venture, but we feel that Atomic Brain Invasion includes enough action, humor, romance and... of course... gruesome monsters... to thrill and excite audiences from 8 to 80! Plus, who doesn't want to see the King of Rock and Roll go toe to toe with slimy brain creatures from outer space?"
“They Came for the King!”
When a mysterious spacecraft carrying a deadly intergalactic plague crash-lands in a small New England town, it’s up to a group of misfit high schoolers and an alien abductee to stop the army of slime-spewing brain creatures from their one goal: kidnapping Elvis Presley!
Oozing with ‘50s pop-culture affection, Atomic Brain Invasion is a gleefully gooey homage to classic sci-fi cinema that the critics call “a success on every level, quick on its feet and packed with in-jokes for the seasoned genre film fan.” Kristofer Upjohn, Corazine.com
Theatrical screening and early press on Atomic Brain Invasion concludes:
"Half of the joy of watching 1950s "B" sci-fi movies was rooting for the cast to triumph over, not only the monster, but the monstrously small budgets. Atomic Brain Invasion is a delightful homage to that genre, successfully walking that fine line between high camp and well-crafted kitsch. It looks beautiful and, seriously, any movie that has a plotline involving aliens out to kidnap Elvis? Two tendrils up!" Ed Naha, Screenwriter "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids"
“It’s sharp, it’s funny and it’s the kind of thing that makes me hope that Griffin never stops making movies”. Cinema-Suicide.com
