Killer School Girls From Outer Space
Dude, y’all! Just dude. So I followed this guy on Twitter – he had a production company named Angry Nun Productions which made me *giggle* and also reminisce on the days when I was in an improv troupe called “Nuns in Straitjackets” and worked on this sketch show called “L.A.F.F.S.” and then my mind wandered to things like School of the Holy Beast and…yeah, well, suffice it to say the whole angry nun thing really struck a chord. So we exchanged a couple of DM’s and I mentioned my site and how much I was loving the name of not only the company but also of this film because seriously y’all, just seriously look at that mother effing title!! (I get a little excited whenever I see the word “schoolgirls”…brings up some great movie moments in my mind…) Anyway, he sent me a screener and I was all prepared to have this done right after Halloween month was over and well, ya know, Sandy and all…soooo, here it finally is – Killer School Girls From Outer Space!!!!! (There are seriously NOT enough exclamation marks in the world for this shiz).
“Directed by Alexander Shumake and starring Ron Jeremy, Donny Boaz, Julin, Derek Lee Nixon, Denise Williamson, Jordan Brower, Jenny Zhang, Kaci Flores and Clem Beard, Killer School Girls From Outer Space is a low-budget throwback to the classic sci-fi and exploitation B-movies of the 50s and 60s – but with a modern sexy schoolgirl twist…” ~IMDB
The movie starts out with a quick note about how they truly dig on Roger Corman and how they aspire to be like him and how this movie is made in the same sort of way he did his early works which boils down to this is a superfun throwback to the drive-in days (E, I think you’ll love this!!!). We’re talking lovers at Lover Lane, racist ole men, spaceships and small town fun, drag races and Ron Jeremy – this has pretty much everything anyone could ever want from a movie.
The opening credits start with an army of men being attacked by schoolgirls and ends with an entirely wicked shot of a planet being blown up complete with old-timey sci-fi music (they talked about that in the directors commentary and I can’t remember the instrument they referenced…) shot with grainy, spotted film that mimics the look of instant classics such as Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun. Next up is Ben and Allison out at *insert appropriate name for makin’ out spots here* where Allison is giving Ben a BJ, after which they discuss his inner turmoil at wanting to quit the football team (he’s the quarterback of course and Allison is a cheerleader). Allison (Denise Williamson, who looks a lot like Amy Adams here) sweetly promises him she’ll always be cheering for him when they are distracted by a shooting star and decide to go check it out. Before they can make it to where the star landed, they of course have to stop at the local drive in diner/hang out (seriously, I could almost swear this was filmed in my hometown, eerie…) where they must catch up with Ben’s best bud (who promptly asks him why he’s hearing that Ben is quitting football – 5 minutes after he’s only ever told Allison and god, that cracked me up because this happens the whole movie and if you’ve never lived in a small town and by that I mean small, then you don’t know the annoyance/humor that goes with everybody knowing your business even before you do) and where Ben is promptly drug into a drag race (more accurately Chicken) with the local bad boys. The local bad boys are kinda hot, just sayin’.
Drag race/chicken game, then off to finally find the shooting star which ends up being a SPACESHIP!!! Ben and Allison also run into a burnt up Old Man Jenkins who ends up being killed in front of them and after that they are on the RUN! First place they go is the police station where they tell their story to the deputy and sheriff (the sheriff being an older fella who doesn’t cotton to dang kids these days with their rock music and their heathen ways) who don’t believe them and then a whole bunch more people die and then suddenly everybody does believe and well, I don’t wanna ruin anything here but let’s just say the ending is so awesomely and ridiculously ridiculous in that epic drive in movie way.
It should be apparent by now that I pretty much loved this movie as it’s right up my alley but here’s the thing – this is the type of movie that has to be right up your alley or you’re not going to like it. If drive in flicks and old 50s era sci-fi movies aren’t your thing, avoid this. If sometimes less than stellar, but ALWAYS effective CGI isn’t your thing, avoid this. If people exploding isn’t your thing, avoid it. If schoolgirls aren’t your thing, avoid this. You know what? If the title KILLER SCHOOL GIRLS FROM OUTER SPACE doesn’t get you all tingly and superexcited inside, then avoid this. (But how could it NOT????)
But if you’re like me (and I really think there’s a big majority of my readers who would totally groove on this here thing) and schoolgirls make you giggle like one, people exploding into bits of blood and bloody parts makes your eyes go wide in excitement and you want nothing more than to keep repeating this title in that way that only Samuel L. Jackson can, by repeatedly saying “Mothereffing killer school girls from mothereffing outer space!!”, then this movie is made with you specifically in mind. And you will love it.
You can find the trailer HERE along with how to order, should you be interested. Plus there’s other cool stuffs that come with such as a bonus dvd on how to be an indie filmmaker which I personally totally dig on since I’m into that kinda thing. You’ll also find all the lovely photos that I heisted from (and linked back) with the trailer! Killer School Girls from Outer Space is a wicked fun time, just like making it with your old lady down at the drive-in!

So it’s like Battle Royale meets Rebel without a Cause meets Plan 9 from Outer Space?
It’s like Grease (without the singing) meets Stacy meets Rebel Without a Cause with maybe a little Plan 9 from Outer Space plus a little Slither and Die You Zombie Bastards, Die! thrown in for extra measure. It’s like someone created a movie just for me!!
I WANT TO SEE IT … YEAH 😛
Yay!! Dude, killer schoolgirls – the title says it ALL!
The instrument you’re talking about is probably the theremin. This movie sounds wonderful and I will have to watch it because all of those things you listed appeal to me.
Oooohh, yes, I think that’s it – thank you!! It makes the kinda of “wa-wa” sound, kind of wavery. I don’t think I’m explaining it very well, lol, sorry tis late! And yay! I hope you like it! Definitely go check out the trailer and see how it appeals to you. 🙂
Yes, the theremin is the one that makes the wavery ‘wa-wa’ sound.
Yup. The whole “Everybody knowing your business in a small town”.
I’m picking up what you’re putting down.
I also like the way you dropped a “ya’ll” in the opening, made me feel right at home! 😀
I know, right? And at one point, someone else mentions it to him and he says, “How do you know?? I didn’t even tell anyone!!” and the reply is “Everybody in town has been talking about it for weeks.” *giggles*
*giggles* Funny enough, I don’t even actually say “ya’ll” in real life. But it’s part of my roots and there was this was filmed in Texas so there was some twang goin’ on – I’ve noticed I sometimes pick up the locality of the film when I’m reviewing things.
I saw “ya’ll” a lot. Since I moved to Milwaukee, I stick out like a sore thumb. It’s awesome.
*giggles* I stick out in Jersey cause I never meet a stranger. I’m all like, “Dude, I just talked to every person on your street and got their life story!” and my friends are like, “I have neighbors??” 😉
LOL and you call yourself socially awkward. You;re actually an adorable social butterfly.
*giggles* A socially awkward adorable social butterfly. I do totally have adorable down to a science. 😉
This sounds right up my alley : ) : ) : ) : ) : ) : )
I’ll keep my eye out for it but you could let me know when it’s released if you wanna : )
Go check out their site! 🙂 It’s linked in the post and has where you can order it – if you want to rent it, I shall have to ask Alexander if that’s doable, let me know!
Ron Jeremy looks like he’s slowly melting.
Lol, he very well could be. 😉
Must. See. This. Gracias!
Always happy to pass along something like this! 🙂
Killer School Girls From Outer Space? OMG why has no one ever thought of this?!? This is AWESOME! They’re Killers! They’re Schoolgirls!! They’re from outer space!!! A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!
Seriously this one sounds right up my alley.
Lol, A-W-E-S-O-M-E spells Moon! (Sorry, couldn’t help that reference!) It’s so totally fun, doesn’t take itself too seriously at all and really was like watching some of the older movies I’ve seen.
where can I view it?
Right now it’s only available by buying the actual disc. Alexander (the director/writer) said they’re working on formatting it to go on Amazon streaming and they’re hoping to have that done by the new year.
sweet!! thanks, Misty!
I think the title ‘Nuns in Straitjackets’ sounds even funnier. That is cool that you were involved in an Improv troupe. I suppose you weren’t paid for that, or were you? That would be a really fun job!
We were sometimes paid depending on the gig. We had some live performances, we did some taped stuff so it really just varied. 🙂 Twas a fun time for sure! And glad you like the name!
Can’t wait to get my hands on this.
And nuns are always hilarious. I was doing this research paper and read about this Mother Superior at some Italian convent who was excommunicated for dressing like an archangel with a giant wooden phallus and visiting one of the other nuns in the convent at night. Extra double plus hilarious!
WHAT?? *giggles* Okay, that was just completely…awesome and definitely hilarious!
so is this a porno or no?
When have I ever reviewed a porno?? ;-p
I don’t know, I saw Ron Jeremy and thought, “huh, well alright” 🙂
*giggles* He’s made a career (well, I guess a second career) out of movies, particularly in the horror/B/indie genre.
True I remember him in Boondock Saints and thought, “at least he is getting work”
Oh I need to see this one. Well, maybe not. I can kind of picture what this whole movie would be like without seeing it and I’m kind of bored of it already.
I don’t understand how schoolgirls can ever be boring but that’s just me. 😉
Are you familiar with the work (hahahah!) of George Anton? He’s a Romanian, just like me and he moved to the states to try his hand at movie making. He is totally awesome and his movies always kill me. His full body of work (hahahahah) can be found on youtube for free.
Here’s a trailer for his space opera Robinson Crusoe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zY3TrJ8gaC4
Um…WOW. That is so…I might have to marry this man. I am so not kidding. Thank you, thank you, thank you for introducing me to this amazement!!!!!! I know what I’m doing for the rest of the day now….
Glad you liked it. When I was introduced to his work, I spent a whole day watching his movies. They’re weirdly addictive.
They look weirdly amazing!
