An animated film I made in super-8 when I was in high school. Nothing to do with cooking.

A super-8 home movie made by yours truly in 1983 (music added this year). I recommend watching it in full screen (far right button on the control bar at the bottom).
That’s my sister digging up the garden. Her (then) husband is the first victim. Their daughter (my niece) makes her screen debut. She’s meant to be dead at the end but didn’t take direction well. Her older sister was also supposed to be in the film but was busy that day or didn’t want to do it, I forget which.
Okay, the creatures aren’t radioactive and they don’t come from space. Like many a low-budget exploitation film, the lurid title came first and has little to do with the actual content. The film’s title was randomly generated by selecting words from four lists, something like this:
followed by “of the”
Using this formula there are 2,352 possible movie titles (8 x 7 x 6 x 7). With ten word in each list, the number increases to 10,000. If I had the programming skills I’d make an internet sci-fi movie title generator – but I don’t. If you do, you’re welcome to use the idea.
Thanks to Vanessa (my niece not in the movie) for having the film digitized. It was my Christmas present this year. She also had an animated film I made in high school digitized (coming soon).
