Wow.  Such thrilling comic timing. And I'm to understand this is the comedic finale?

You poor poor man.  You need a tonic.  No, no, get away from the power drill, trepanning never solved anything...

        Oh,great:a review/profile of a film by Gorman Bechard,a filmmaker so horrible that not only do his celluloid features eternally blow(such as "Disconnected",and "Cemetery High",which was previously the original "Assault of the Killer Bimbos",until its monstrous AFM failure transformed it into[briefly]"Hack 'Em High"),but he once complained to Cinemafantaseque that Charles Band ruined his films by adding too much nudity into them(anything to liven those up lame-o flicks).Otherwise,films like this make the works of Jim Wynorski and Albert Pyun look pretty damn respectable.

I watched this movie once a long time ago. It is so cheesy and stupid that you can't help but laugh, even if it is from embarassment. Unfortunately nobody else I know has ever watched it so for years the (sporatic) references to Elvis being a broccoli, quoting "Hoo-eeeee did you see them hooters?" or saying "s**t, s**t, s**t" whenever I dig with a shovel have been met with confused looks. Of course the explanation for these remarks is wierder than the remarks themselves. I think everyone needs to see this movie, but only once.

Look, some humor is just over your heads.  If you can't appreciate "cut the frabber-jabber" and all of it's variants then there is no help for you.  That one scene in the car was so loaded with "frabber-jabber" I wanted to smack them mobsters myself.  My biggest complaint with this movie was not the lame (and I do mean lame) jokes or the cheesy costumes or putrid acting.  (all of these actually add to the charm of this flick)  It was the fact that Eoj doesn't bone Hildy at the end.  The whole movie they were teasing this sexual tension, and Hildy was primed and eager for action at the end but Eoj rejects her because she isn't from prospect. What garbage.  I still love this movie.  A friend of mine gave it to me for christmas.  With friends like that......

Believe it or not, I like your review of my film.  You actually watched it, and thought about it.  Thank you for being fair.

It's a terrible movie, one (along with Cemetery) that I don't even put on my resume. 

And yes, Band helped destory it.  (Not by adding nudity, I NEVER said that.)  The post production was beyond hideous.  The film was shot to look like a non-animated adult cartoon.  That was all color timed out.  The editor had no sense of pacing.  The shoot out at the end, though very silly, could have been a lot funnier, if edited by someone who knew what they were doing.  Most of the jokes fell to the editing room floor.

It's a silly film...that WAS the intent...but having an editor who actually "got" what we were going for would have helped a lot.  There's a famous quote, and I'm paraphrasing: There's the movie you write, the movie you shoot, and the movie you edit.  We got screwed in the editing.  Not that this was ever going to be a brilliant film.  But it would have been faster, funnier, goofier.

Or course, Band was only interested in product.  So trying to explain this fell on deaf ears.

You want to hear the whole Charlie Band story, pick up the new DVD of Psychos In Love.  I explain my Empire issues in detail in one of the commentaries...

Thanks again,

Gorman Bechard

You're ALL right.  Yes, Gorman - a little fancy editing would have improved this flick but the odd thing is, some people actually found this movie fun.  I watched it about a year ago and giggled a few times. 

In Australia, there's a bunch of people who use this flick for a drinking game (usually they have to take a drink every time they hear "frabba-jabba").  In China, someone wrote a song and made a video called "Galactic Gigolo" complete with some fake Elvi and someone with a mask of my face (on youtube).  That was just creepy.

So - it's not a stick-out-your-chest-and-brag-I-was-in-it sort of film (like Psychos In Love), but it was a good time.
Remember when the Mayor of Prospect, CT BANNED this film from town?  Yessir.  Good times.

Not ALL, Carmine. 

The Stephen dude is tossing around bulls**t as if its fact. Talking about an AFM screening being the cause of the "Assault"/"Cemetery" name change, when the name was changed on the day we wrapped...because Band had never read the damn script and suddenly discovered it was "too dark" for his sensibilities.  I don't mind criticism, I just hate morons who act as if they know what they're talking about, when they haven't a clue.  (Fact, the AFM was held in March in 1987.  We filmed in May/June...the name was changed immediately upon a screening two months before we ever filmed a single scene...a tad difficult.)

The rest, yes...a fun thread.

And yes, I completely forgot about the Mayor of Prospect banning it from the video stores in town.  Hmmm...perhaps we hit a nerve?

You'd think Las Vegas would be a far more appropriate destination for an alien who wants to shag a lovely female Homo sapiens or five...
