The Ghastly Love of Johnny X
JAN 26
THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY X
While movie companies like Asylum make shit movies that no one cares about, in a cynical attempt to get audiences they don't like, there are those few Indie filmmakers who never stop raising the birth child of their labor of love.

Whether it's Darren Lynn Bouseman spending years Four-Walling his 2008 magnum opus, REPO: THE GENETIC OPERA! or Caleb Emerson still toiling to bring an audience to his 2005 nudie comedy trashterpiece, DIE YOU ZOMBIE BASTARDS! to the nearly twenty years that crazed directors Wayne Berwick and Ted Newsom took to bring THE NAKED MONSTER merely to Direct to Video. Say what you will about these movies and many have, but you can't deny the unfathomable love these filmmakers have for their precious birth defects.

Which brings me to micro-small time writer and director, Paul Bunnell, and his 1950s retro scifi monster musical, THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY X.

Where to begin? Let's start with my 2012 review and bring you up to speed on what is happening in Australia this Friday, January 30, 2015.

RIP'n FOR ROBERT KINOSHITA
Artist & Art Director Robert Kinoshita, died December 9, 2014, in Torrance, California. I'm amazed it took the press this long to report it.

Robert created the Robby the Robot design for FORBIDDEN PLANET and for years after, was the goto guy for robots.

Born in Los Angeles, California in 1914, Robert grew up to study Architecture at the University of Southern California (USC).

Unfortunately, young Robert was a troubled Asian man, and soon ran afoul of U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066 - a law against being Japanese or even having a Japanese heritage.

Found guilty of being born of Japanese ancestors, Robert had all of his possessions confiscated by the U.S. government and was forced into a government concentration camp with others of his race.

After World War II, Robert and his wife moved to Wisconsin, where Robert worked as an industrial designer. But around 1954 Robert returned to California and went to work for Republic Pictures. There he designed Tobor (Robot spelled backwards) for the hit TV series, Captain Video. Tobor was so popular that the empty suit went on to star in Republic Pictures feature film, TOBOR THE GREAT. This movie, about a boy and his giant outerspace robot, would go on to become the inspiration for THE IRON GIANT.
