DR VORNOFF VS THE MARTIANS! - PRE PRODUCTION

Pre-production and the search for funding, cast, crew, everything will officially begin next week for the 50's sci-fi B movie spoof. First and foremost, a producer will need to be found and then I'll probably be bugging everyone I know for funding/contacts/help!

For now though, enjoy some of the films which inspired Dr Vornoff VS The Martians:

BRIDE OF THE MONSTER - by Ed Wood


This classic turkey stars Bela Lugosi as Dr Vornoff and Ed Wood's film will be the unofficial prequel to my mad creation with some of the characters (or character types) returning. An ageing actor with a thick Hungarian accent will be needed to play the iconic Bela part. The speech above will be directly referenced at the end of the film.

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE - By Ed Wood


Another Ed Wood classic, Plan 9 will inspire the Martian invasion part of the story and, of course, the overall clunky style (flying saucers with strings...). Criswell will also introduce Dr Vornoff much like in Plan 9.

EARTH VS THE FLYING SAUCERS - By Fred F. Sears


Again, this classic will offer much inspiration when it comes to the Martian abductions etc. Oh and, obviously, my title is a direct reference to this one...
