B-movie actress Rebecca Raven (Misty Mundae) demands better roles from her boss Frank (Michael R.Thomas), instead though she is sacked ... which leaves Frank with one pressing problem: He doesn't have a leading lady for his next film. So, in search of a leading lady, he watches a film about Callahan (Rob Mankiewicz), a doen-on-his-luck scrayard owner who one day finds a spaceship on his premises, manned by two foot-high aliens who pack some serious lasergunpower and are not exactly friendly. And while he is still trying to fight off the aliens, his girlfriend Linda (Caitlin Ross) comes by for an argument, and soon their bickering gets almost as intensive as the shoot-out Callahan against the aliens. In the end, the aliens build a giant robots out of sparepart from the scrapyard in order to decide the fight to their favour ... but Callahan still has his caterpillar. In the end though, it's the intergalactical police that blows the robot to smithereens ...

In the meantime, Rebecca has found retreat in an old house in the country, but a legshaving accident awakens a zombie, who soon enough comes after her ... until she realizes she's the toughest bitch in B-pictures and all you need to fight a zombie is a chainsaw ... and before you know it, the zombie is slized to cutlets ... (In case you wondered, Misty does get naked in this one.)

Back at the studio, Frank watches another film, this one about a Naomi (A.J.Khan) who stays at Dr Carruthers' (Julian Wells) institute to have her dreams monitored. But when one of the other girls (Merev Tal) at the institute dies while having had her dreams monitored, Naomi grows suspicious and decides to investigate, only to find out that during their dream periods, the girls are actually connected to a giant brain that turns out to be mankind as such from one million years in the future. But in the sad state mankind has come to, the brain needs to feed from the feelings of others to have any kind of sensations - even if that means that sometimes those who feed the brain have to die ... ultimately though, Naomi manages to kill the brain. (In case you wondered this time, A.J. and Julian both get naked in this one.)

Back in the here and now, Rebecca returns to the studio to be re-employed ... and to make sure that Frank knows who's the boss now she has brought a chainsaw and a zombie head.

 

A loving hommage to video trash from the 1980's and 90's, with a great trash robot (trash in every sense of the word), several references to Evil Dead (in Misty's episode), though with the roles being reversed about halfway through the story, some attempts at trash-surrealism, and some great handmade special effects - but that said, the film simply isn't as good as it should have been: The robot episode lacks the proper finale it would have deserved, the whole thing seems to just end at a random point in the story, and the brain story, despite its surrealistic scenes, just fails to work as it lacks a proper storyline ... which wouldn#t even have been just as bad wouldn't it have been the last of the stories that (apart from the filmstudio-finale) ends the film, plus it totally lacks the irony so apparent int he rest of the film.

That said, the film still isn't too bad, and if you love sci-fi- and horror-trash just like I do, you will find quite a few scenes to chuckle.

 

By the way, Misty Mundae, who plays the B-movie actress leaving her studio and realizing that the studio actually owns her life, went to a similar experience in real life around the same time when she left ei Independent Cinema - though on much friendlier terms than in the film - and had to leave her name behind as well - which is why she now wants to be known as Erin Brown ...
