Movies In Focus has a special love of old horror and sci-fi movies. The beauty of old movies is that time is a great equaliser, and a low budget films probably don’t look quite as bad as they did when they were first released.
Another Plan From Outer Space is a modern take on the kitschy aesthetic of low budget movies from the 1950s. The title is obviously a riff on Ed Wood‘s much mocked (but actually rather good) Plan 9 From Outer Space. The performances and black and white photography look purposefully arch in an attempt to recreate the specific tone of movies from filmmakers such as Wood.
Like Wood, director/producer/writer Lance Polland is working with a tight budget, but hat shouldn’t matter if he’s able to recreate the fun of those old B-movies. Movies In Focus will hopefully have a review of the film online soon.
Another Plan From Outer Space follows five astronauts who return from a long deep space mission, crash landing on Earth and find their hope for a rescue quickly turning into a fight for survival.
This loving homage to classic science fiction and has been officially selected for the Southeast Regional Film Festival and winner of the Best Sci-Fi Feature Film, Best Sound Editing at the Vidi Space Film Festival and Best Feature Film, Best Actress: Augie Duke at the Hollywood South Film Festival, where it was also nominated for Best Actress: Jessica Morris, Best Actor: Scott Sell, Best Supporting Actor: Hans Hernke.
“We are thrilled that Bounty Films will be taking our award winning film to VOD platforms worldwide for audiences to see, buckle up for a fun ride with twists and turns!” says Director/Producer/Writer Lance Polland.
