Undead Backbrain has been rather quiet of late, and probably will be for a while, as I wrestle with the galleys of my upcoming horror/fantasy novel Fragments of a Broken Land: Valarl Undead as well as other somewhat more uncontrollable real-life issues. But in the meantime, let me cast your minds back to a low budget, independent and then in-development film that offers up an array of homages to the great stop-motion animator, Ray Harryhausen. The film is Galactic Raiders, directed by Larry Arpin, which featured on the Backbrain all the way back in 2008 (check out the article here).
The first trailer has just been released and it’s full of monstrous animated goodness. Check it out below:
Thanks to Kaiju Search-Robot Avery for picking this one up.
Avery, who has been acting as Film Wrangler for this year’s 6th Annual B-Movie Celebration’s Film Festival held in Columbus, Indiana, last weekend, reports that Galactic Raiders had its world premiere at the festival, in front of “an enthusiastic crowd”. I’m sure we’ll hear more about its future availability soon.
