Mini-Reviews from the Flint Film Festival

"It Came From Another World!" (U.S., directed by Christopher R. Mihm). A follow-up to "The Monster of Phantom Lake" (a success at the 2006 Flint Film Festival), this newly made parody of 1950s' science fiction/horror films shows up at the 2007 fest. Josh Craig reprises his role as uptight, pipe-smoking, guitar-strumming scholar/hero Professor Jackson. Craig plays him as intentionally wooden as the '50s grade-Z fantasy film acting styles allowed. The satire is pitch-perfect in this film about alien invaders from space. Watch it ... if you dare!
