(aka Worm) Ana, an American biology student working at Oxford, accidentally discovers a strange phenomenon, which she and her friends develop into a way to instantly transport solid matter through artificial wormholes. But when she takes the first trip in their matter transporter, things start to go very wrong: her memory is failing, strange nightmares […]Read more "Anti Matter (2016)"
This one isn’t as bad as most people say it is. Which, admittedly, isn’t saying much. The biggest problem with The Slime People is that it came a decade too late. Most of its flaws wouldn’t have been as noticeable had it come out in rush of cheap SF in the Fifties. This is, in fact, […]Read more "The Slime People (1963)"
“The following transmission has been translated into local Terran dialect. Some visual distortion may occur” I have no idea what in the world Antonio Llapur and Matt Sjafiroeddin were smoking when they created Space Detective. I just hope someone buys them more of it – and soon. I find myself at a loss what in […]Read more "Space Detective (2017)"

And he even has to carry a girl around in several of the […]Read more "The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961)"
“Don’t do that! Didn’t you see The Blob?” This one, despite a title which suggests something more Romero is actually Brett Piper‘s loving homage to The Blob. Not that he doesn’t get more than a touch of George Romero in there as well. Of course, this is the Blob by way of the 1988 remake, a […]Read more "Bacterium (2007)"
This is by far the best film Christopher R. Mihm has ever made. I’d half expected it to be a cross between The Fly and the old Republic serial, Spy Smasher, but instead we get something quite different from that – and quite different from the ten other Mihm films that preceded it. Yes, it […]Read more "Weresquito: Nazi Hunter (2016)"
This is a slow and subtle film, which (after a brief intro) builds its story gradually, showing us what happens rather than telling us what is going on. Which, of course means that a lot of people won’t like it. It is a fairly basic sort of story, in many respects: the all too familiar […]Read more "Robot World (2015)"
