So, the other day I checked my emails and came across a link to this intriguing sci-fi trailer called Hellacious Acres: The Case of John Glass. I checked it out and found myself blown away.
Now I invite you to be blown away too.
So what is the movie about? Check out the official movie plot below:
John Glass wakes up in a desolate barn from a long cryogenic slumber, to be informed that not only has the planet been devastated by a third world war, but also reduced to little habitability by a subsequent alien invasion. He learns that in order to help reestablish a livable atmosphere for what’s left of humanity, he’ll have to go on a solitary mission to retrieve important codes dispersed throughout remote locations. Soon enough he’ll encounter more than he “bargained” for: aliens, crazy survivors, inadequate equipment, LOTS of walking and a pretty unhealthy dose of bad luck…
The movie is the brain child of Pat Tremblay, who wrote, directed and did pretty much everything else on the movie. According to the movie’s official facebook page:
With a self-financed total budget of less than 9000 dollars, Pat Tremblay has constructed an anti-epic film about the unsung casualties of war. The story relies on exposing, with a down to earth eye, simple basic science-fiction concepts & situations, while also filtering them through a twisted slap of dark & deadpan humor.
Pretty cool, huh? Now, let’s check out the trailer.
So, what did you think? I love sci-fi movies like this. Good writing, good story and good acting and you’ve got yourself a fantastic movie. You don’t need CGI or over the top explosions to make a great sci-fi movie (take The Man from Earth for example) and I’m sure Hellacious Acres: The Case of John Glass will be no different.
Looking forward to watching this. What about you? Please let us know in the comments section below.
