If you liked The Love Witch, here’s your new retro-perfect jam! Schlock impresario Francis Gordon (Fred Ballard) and his intrepid crew attempt to shoot an impromptu monster movie in the three days left over from the film they’ve just wrapped. Writer-director Kelly Greene’s pastiche gem was lost the minute it was made in 1999, but has now been lovingly refurbished by Mark Rance, who brought Tobe Hooper’s Eggshells to FrightFest 2010. From the Saul Bass opening title homage to its highly authentic, comic evocation of 1950s grade-Z grindhouse, Attack of the Bat Monsters delivers a total delight. A must-see for fans of Roger Corman.

A light-on-its-feet gem ripe for discovery
