Attack from Planet B is a website dedicated to all things cult.
From classic 1950s science fiction to modern popcorn pulp.
Established in 2010, we have indulged ourselves in cult cinema over the past 8 years; 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.
We understand that the modern genre film 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 our website is separated into multiple categories; each one covering a specific genre, subgenre or format; 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.”
“I’m not going to shoot you between the eyes. I’m going to shoot you between the balls.”
“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.”
“Crocodiles shed tears when they eat their prey. You have heard of these tears I am sure. But have you seen them?”
“A shadow shall fall over the universe and evil will grow in its path, and death will come from the skies.”
“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!”
“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.”
“Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”
“They must pay for their crimes with blood and pain. For what they have done, make them die slowly…”
“I never try anything. I just do it… Wanna try me?”
“They are so wrong. Godzilla should not be destroyed. He should be studied!”
I can hear it now: “Go to Italy. It’s a peaceful country, nothing much ever happens there.”
“If you so want the company of devils, you’d better hurry back to hell!”
“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.”

In 2018 it was announced that The Slaughtered Bird would exist solely as a film production company; with the website itself ceasing to exist. In an effort to preserve the content of that website, we are transferring over the various reviews and interviews published during their five year lifespan to Attack from Planet B; with the permission of their respected authors.
