A movie that I worked on a lil' while back will have it's premiere this upcoming Friday night (May 22nd) at 7PM at the Nepean Creative Arts Centre (35 Stafford Road, Nepean...aka...Ottawa). Admission is $5.00.
Attack of the Giant Leeches is director Brett Kelly's re-make of the Roger Corman produced 1959 drive-in cult classic. A film which also got the MST3K treatment in 1992:
Dr. Forrester: Ah! Robinson, Servo, Mr. T. Robot! Our invention this week is inspired by this week's experiment, "Attack of the Giant Leeches". In ye olden times, alchemists believed that leeches served medicinal purposes.
TV's Frank: So do we!
Dr. Forrester: Uh, yes um, we found that the common fresh water leech uh, can serve the same purpose as a nicotine patch, and being neither food nor drug, there's no pesky FDA regulation to impede your progress and I can experiment at will. Frank?
TV's Frank: At your service.
Dr. Forrester: Our subject, Frank, has been trying to quit smoking for quite some time. He's a three pack-a-day man.
TV's Frank: No I'm not!
Dr. Forrester: Yes you are, shut up. Now this leech, we'll call him Patches...
TV's Frank: Yah!
Dr. Forrester: When applied to the neck or head area, will suck any desire to smoke out of Frank.
TV's Frank: No, no, no, no! No! No! No, I'm the sum of my vices! I have my pain, my happiness, my losses, my love! My struggles, my hobbies, my lent! I want to live! I want to live! I want to live! And love! And learn! And live!
Dr. Forrester: But this won't hurt a bit.
TV's Frank: Oh, Ok.
Dr. Forrester: Uh, there you go. Now, Patches, I'm depending on you, ya slug!
TV's Frank: Say, this is the most action I've ever got.
