Attack from Planet B is an website dedicated to cult cinema; from 1950s sci-fi to modern popcorn pulp.
Our scope is broadly cast upon the B movie; a label previously applied to the less-publicised, second half of a theatrical double feature, and more recently to low-budget film in general.
But let’s face it…we love popular culture! The A movie deserves analysis too, and it would be a disservice to both visual and auditory culture if we didn’t also provide in-depth reviews and articles in other areas such as television, music, books and video games.
Therefore this website is separated into multiple categories; each one covering either a specific format or genre, from gigantic mutated monsters destroying downtown Tokyo to drunken kung-fu masters.
To avoid fainting, keep repeating: “It’s only a movie, only a movie, only a movie…”
“In space, no one can hear you scream.”
“They must pay for their crimes with blood and pain. For what they have done, make them die slowly…”
“I’m not going to shoot you between the eyes. I’m going to shoot you between the balls.”
“A shadow shall fall over the universe and evil will grow in its path, and death will come from the skies.”
“Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”
“In the past year, over 800,000 Americans have died. Despite millions of dollars of research, death continues to be our nation’s number one killer.”
“Wanting people to listen, you can’t just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you’ll notice you’ve got their strict attention.”
“You have offended my family and you have offended the Shaolin Temple!”
“Start praying if you like, I don’t mind. It’s a smart thing to do when you know that death is coming for you. Oh, haven’t you got your burial suit with you? We’ll have to leave you to the vultures. So now begin your prayer… I can’t hear you!”
“If you so want the company of devils, you’d better hurry back to hell!”
“Where everything else festers!”
