Gerry Anderson created – or co-created with his then wife Sylvia Anderson – a series of beloved TV shows like Mike Mercury: Supercar, Fireball XL-5, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. Not to mention live-action shows like Space: 1999, UFO and Space Precinct.
Now several rare Gerry Anderson productions – like his first never-before-seen puppet film Here Comes Kandy, The Investigator, and Space Police (which became the template for Space Precinct) have been collected for the MPI DVD release The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson.
The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson will be in stores on November 14th.

Night of the Living Deb is a zombie-romantic-comedy, or zomromcom. So that’s a thing.
It’s also smart, funny, occasionally genuinely creepy and occasionally a bit too awkward for its own good – especially at the beginning, when we haven’t actually twigged to what the rules are.

Can a zombie apocalypse facilitate romance – or is t a big buzz kill?
Deb, nerdy and endearingly awkward, wakes up in the apartment of Ryan, the hottest guy in Portland, Maine. Neither can remember how that happened, but when he attempts to get her home, they face a zombie apocalypse. Timing…
Night of the Living Deb is a ‘zomromcom’ that looks to fit in cozily next to Shaun of the Dead and Warm Bodies as one of those oddball B-movie bursts of inspiration that pop up from time to time and combine classic horror tropes with weird romance. Plus, Ray Wise.
Night of the Living Deb also comes from Dark Sky Films, so chances are it’s as gloriously goofy fun as the trailer suggests. MPI is releasing Night of the Living Dead on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD on September 6th. Check out the aforementioned trailer after the break.

Swedish sci-fi film LFO (We gave it an A-) is coming to DVD. The low-budget, low-fi film is a dark (very dark) comedy about a man who discovers a way to use low-frequency sound to hypnotize others and uses it to fuel his personal fantasies – until those fantasies reach megalomaniac proportions.
Check out a new trailer for the Dark Sky DVD/VOD/Digital HD release, available on October 28th.

A lonely, sad sack scientist wannabe discovers a combination of very low frequencies that appear to make people extremely suggestible. At first, he uses his discovery to act out his wildest fantasies, but then, as his past catches up with him, he goes farther than even he could have imagined.
LFO is a micro-budgeted, low-fi sci-fi comedy from Sweden’s Antonio Tublen that looks at human nature in a supremely twisted way. It was one of my favorite films at this year’s Calgary International Film Festival.
