About Attack from Planet B

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

ATTACK FROM PLANET B | From classic sci-fi/horror to modern popcorn pulp!

Established in 2010, we have indulged ourselves in cult cinema over the past decade; delving into the darkest cesspool of imagination. Our name derives from 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. The website itself is separated into multiple categories: each one covering a specific genre, or subgenre; from gigantic mutated monsters destroying downtown Tokyo to drunken kung-fu masters.

EIC: Ken Wynne | Founder: Adam Akers

HORROR | To avoid fainting, keep repeating: “It’s only a movie, only a movie, only a movie…”

All of your most ghoulish, morbid curiosities on all things frightening and unspeakable await in this category; from zombies living in your neighbour’s basement to chainsaw-wielding necrophiliacs.

SCI-FI | “In space, no one can hear you scream.”

From flying saucers and acid-spitting Xenomorphs to deep-sea monsters and scientific experiments run amuck. We don’t know what the hell is this category, but it’s weird and pissed off… whatever it is.

ACTION | “I’m not going to shoot you between the eyes. I’m going to shoot you between the balls.”

Pull up a bar stool, grab a cigar and down a shot of tequila. This is the category where the action heroes hang out! The type of heroes that never run out of ammo and always have the killer one-liners.

THRILLER | “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.”

Let us take you on a white-knuckled death ride where crime rules the streets! Who is that lurking in the alleyway, and why the black leather gloves? When this category goes berserk, you’re better off dead!

ADVENTURE | “Crocodiles shed tears when they eat their prey. You have heard of these tears I am sure. But have you seen them?”

In this category, forget any ideas you’ve got about lost cities, exotic travel, and digging up the world. We do not follow maps to buried treasure, and “X” never, ever marks the spot.

FANTASY | “A shadow shall fall over the universe and evil will grow in its path, and death will come from the skies.”

If anything should happen to this category, find our enemies. Evil wizards with black sorcery, kings with a penchant for death, and hulking orcs whom are not afraid to drive cold steel into the skulls of the weak!

MARTIAL ARTS | “You have offended my family and you have offended the Shaolin Temple!”

Your skill is extraordinary… but before you take on the 36 crazy fists in this high-kicking category of martial artistry, you must train with the drunken master and learn the way of the crouching monkey.

WESTERN | “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…”

This is the wild west of categories, where everybody squints into the sun, looks menacing and everything happens at high noon. So saddle up your horse, holster your gun and don’t forget to eat your spaghetti…

COMEDY | “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.”

This category will have you dying from laughter. Although, so far there’s no known treatment for death’s crippling effects, everyone can acquaint themselves with an early warning sign of death: rigor mortis.

DRAMA | “Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”

You talkin’ to me? Then who the hell else are you talking to? I’m the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to? This category has put some bad ideas in my head.

EXPLOITATION | “They must pay for their crimes with blood and pain. For what they have done, make them die slowly…”

In this post-apocalyptic concrete jungle, biker gangs terrorise the streets, victimising anyone unlucky enough to be in their way. Take a tour of Manhattan’s 42nd Street in this sleazier category.

EROTICA | “I never try anything. I just do it… Wanna try me?”

From seductive murder suspects to belted, buckled, and booted superwomen, we don’t like to wear any underwear in this category. There is only one rule: Never fall in love.

KAIJU EIGA | “They are so wrong. Godzilla should not be destroyed. He should be studied!”

Godzilla absorbed massive amounts of atomic radiation and yet it still survived! We may have to re-think our strategies in this category, gentlemen. There’s possibly no weapon, on Earth, that can defeat Godzilla…

SLASHER | “Who will survive and what will be left of them?”

We always knew he’d come back. In this category, he is a myth. He’s the Boogeyman. A ghost story to scare kids. But this Boogeyman is real. An evil like his never stops, it just grows older. Darker. More determined.

NOIR | “From the moment they met it was murder!”

Look at this category and tell me… Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you £20,000 for every dot that stopped, would you really tell me to keep my money?

GIALLO | I can hear it now: “Go to Italy. It’s a peaceful country, nothing much ever happens there.”

If you think you are being followed home, keep telling yourself that it’s all because of this category; a stunning portrait in psycho-terror! All the screaming in the world won’t help!

ANIMATION | “If you so want the company of devils, you’d better hurry back to hell!”

From wish-granting Dragon Balls to skilled martial warriors descended from Taarak, this category takes you beyond the future into a universe you’ve never seen before.

DOCUMENTARY | “The capacity to hate is a frightening human reality. We are always ready to blame another if the circumstances can free us from our own self-guilt.”

Torn from today’s headlines! If the brutal and explicit depiction of actual death is upsetting to you, please do not view this category. If you do, don’t say we didn’t warn you…
