Damn Missed One

There's still a few days of one of the millions of film festivals I have to keep up with in LA.

Dances With Film 14 ends June 9th, think independent movies

damn, Night of the Alien sounded good

"A clever mash up of comedy, science fiction, coming of age, psychedelics, conspiracy theories, witch craft, white trash, and pop culture. FRAN, an unemployed slacker, and best friend THE LORD OF EVIL AND DARKNESS are two lost souls on a road trip through the Southern California desert. Along the way they pick up a hitchhiker, who claims to be an Alien from the planet Zoltran. This unlikely trio then encounters Stoners, Strippers, Knights of the"square"-table, an effeminate drug thug, the vortex of destiny, and a master plan to take over the world via American Idol. Oh yeah, and there's a fish tank."

THE MILLENNIUM BUG"It’s December 31st, 1999, and the world anxiously awaits the year 2000. Hoping to escape the Y2K computer glitch known as the “millennium bug,” Byron Haskin takes his new wife and teenage daughter camping in the isolated Sierra Diablos mountains. But madness finds them in the form of the Crawford clan, a family of in-bred hillbillies who abduct the Haskins in order to refresh their stagnant gene pool. As the Haskins fight for their lives, death and bloody carnage ensue, but neither they nor the Crawfords are aware of the monstrous horror hibernating beneath the forest floor. Unseen for 1,000 years, this millennium bug is hungry… and December 31st just happens to be its birthday."
