Editorial Reviews

Five friends, a love of film and a suicide pact. In Tolkein lore, Astron-6 is the day of the Elvish New Year, and a new year is upon us indeed....
From their first meeting at The Winnipeg Short Film Massacre, the five men instantly found themselves embroiled in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Rather than destroy each other, the sworn enemies decided to unite - and then destroy themselves (once famous). Astron-6 is the brainchild of these five iconoclastic, multi-media artists who share a fascination with the mechanics of fear and laughter. They subvert the expectations of the seasoned viewer with the nightmarish and absurd. Their imagery and recurring themes are often torn from the childhood of the irony-craving, internet savvy Generations X and Y. That is, they often lampoon genre films of the 1980s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incomparable mad genius, December 13, 2011
To do this DVD justice, I'd have to write an essay on each short film. If you're like me, and are completely enamored by this sort of 80s-loving, gore-heavy, gut-busting (and ghost-busting?) comedy/horror/action/softcore porn(?), then you'll hardly have the patience to sit through anything longer than a 300 word review.
That being said, thank goodness for these clinically unbalanced Canucks. For being homemade films, these fellas are already demonstrating the skills to play in the big leagues (said leagues have only just gotten ready now as they're releasing their first two feature films "Father's Day" and "Manborg" in the festival circuit).
You'll just have to trust me on this one and BUY THIS DVD compilation. It is the best Troma release since...ever...and if you're the least bit a fan of sci-fi, raunchy comedies, straight-to-VHS 80s films, animation or just anything with lasers and/or swords, you'll find something to love amongst these films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Horror and Dark (Violent, Gory) Comedy July 19, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase
Astron-6 can do what others seemingly cannot - these guys can make an entertaining and enjoyable movie with no budget. There is something for everyone here in this collection of 18 horror shorts but the stand-outs by far are the eerie HEART OF KARL, INFERNO OF THE DEAD and INSANOPHENIA. Only a couple of them were "eh" and for the most part this collection is pretty solid with great bad acting, good effects at times and a fun stories. I really loved the 80's feel to it and the music throughout was perfect. You get gore, nudity, violence, humor, 80's synth music - look, it's worth the money and it's a great movie to toss in at a party or watch with a group.

Here are the shorts included:
Goreblade
Heart Of Karl
Insanophenia
Siam I Am
Inferno of The Dead
Sebastian and Alan
Street Racer
Lazer Ghosts
Ghost Killers
Fat Adam
Kris Miss
You're Dead
Ena Lake Blues
H.I.Z.
Nobodies
Cool Guys
Fireman
Punch Out

2.0 out of 5 stars this is why it didn't work August 8, 2012
By JACK

The film was not very full. The short cool guys was incredible . But the rest of them completely fell flat. And some of them were just short fake trailers. It was good but not great.
If you want a few short films a couple laughs but thats it. Astron-6 Collection
