Gila Rises!

One of the most anticipated independent giant monster flicks of recent times has been Jim Wynorski’s remake of the B-movie classic The Giant Gila Monster (US-1959; dir. Ray Kellogg), titled simply Gila!

Here’s the new poster:

The world premiere took place at the 6th Annual B-Movie Celebration’s Film Festival held in Columbus, Indiana earlier this month and the film was met with great enthusiasm and excitement. Hopefully those of us that couldn’t make it to the Festival will get to see it soon on SyFy or DVD. In the meantime, here’s the new trailer:

    I was an extra in the Christmas dance sequence. Happy to see I show up for a couple of brief seconds in the trailer. Working with Jim Wynorski was a blast and hoping to do it again.
