"Conrad Brooks is the Gielgud of bad movies." -- The New York Times
Edward D. Wood, Jr. company player Conrad Brooks (Plan 9 From Outer Space, Glen or Glenda?) carries on the tradition of loopy no-frills movie-making into the modern era with a pair of (we can safely say) the most unusual flicks you'll ever see! You've been warned...
Hillbilly Monster aka Son Of Jan-Gel (2003): A half-boy, half-beast - the feature attraction of a carnival freak show - escapes his captors and flees into the nearby woodland. Jake, the evil carnival owner, is less concerned with the creature's well-being than the profits he will lose without his "star." As the corrupt carny begins his search, so does the beast-boy's guardian, a local man who found the creature in the wilds years ago. Meanwhile, the creature is befriended by a young man named Jason and taken in by a kindly doctor and his assistant. Together, the trio tries to rehabilitate the beast-boy. It's soon learned that the creature may be the hideous offspring of Jan-Gel, the monstrous caveman that once stalked the Virginia hill country.
Grandparents From Outer Space (1999): Two intergalactic senior citizens, searching for their grandchildren, crash-land their spaceship on Earth. Turns out, that's exactly where the missing kids are located. The space seniors encounter some culture shock when they try to assimilate the locals. A young couple tries to help the elderly voyagers, but it's a race against the clock to reunite grandparents and grandkids before time runs out.
Life is tough when you're a HILLBILLY MONSTER, as this double feature shows. Conrad Brooks stars in both, bringing his usual charismatic acting skills to the screen, as previously seen in PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE and GLEN OR GLENDA.
