Product Description

When a military transport crash lands on a war torn planet competing factions seek the last, lost stockpile of the illicit psychic-power enhancing drug Psylenol. Set against a backdrop that combines the apocalyptic world view of the Mad Max trilogy with the lawless antihero psychology of the Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns, Planetfall packs a visual effects packed science fiction punch!

Features cameo appearances by legendary B-Movie actor Ted V Miklas, Tyrel Ventura (son of former pro wrestler and Minnesota Governor Jesse "The Body" Ventura) and John Levene (Dr. Who).


An engaging dust-and-blood Epic of gorilla filmmaking that suspends disbelief, merging hard-boiled noir and apocalyptic action set peces with the reomanticised vision of violence found in the Spaghetti Westerns of the 70's. Planetfall is sure to become a hit of the genre underground. -- by William P. Simmons, sexgoremutants.co.uk

It's a go-for-broke no budget indie production so loaded with charm, style, and plenty of fun that not even do the hiccups not matter, but they only make you love the movie even more..."Planetfall" is scrappy, crazy, and always big fun. And how terrific to see a project like this get such a lavish, loaded DVD presentation. Highly Recommended to anyone interested in something outside the Hollywood norm. -- by David Cornelius, DVDtalk.com, February 19, 2007

One of those great rarities, the science fiction / western hybrid, comes roaring out of Heretic with Planetfall, a movie as good as it is rare. -- by Steve Anderson, REEL ADVICE, movieweb.com, March 7th, 2007

Planetfall, the Sci-Fi western with a touch of comic relief has dialog that's widely palatable and has lots to offer for all audiences. DVD Collectors looking for special features with every release need not look any further. General audiences will enjoy the deleted scenes. Although I'd be hard pressed to nail Planetfall as a cult film, I recommend Planetfall, quirks and all. -- by Ron Cotton, 10kbullets.com, February 11, 2007

The set design...and look of the film were really well done and went a long way towards giving the film it's special and highly memorable look. -- by Duane L. Martin, roguecinema.com, February 1, 2007

Usually when someone describes something as "different" it's usually a nice way of saying it's bad. Not here..."Planetfall" is different in a good way.

Most modern Sci-Fi films you see today are devoid of vision. What Hollywood has been turning out lately have been nothing but action films with a sci-fi bend. Here is a film that takes the time to go the extra mile. It's like a Sci-Fi version of an old spaghetti western. Think "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly" in outer space. Very ingenious.

Yeah, the film has an awfully low budget but I didn't feel distracted by it and I think that fact doesn't take away from the creativeness, humor and great acting this film has.

It was just a lot of fun to watch.

Please think twice before buying this DVD. It's comparisons to the Mad Max trilogy and any Sergio Leone western are near blasphemy and if you believe that's what you're about to watch, you'll be very dissapointed. The GGI special effects they used for most of the scenery and backdrops is horrible...horrible. The acting is awful and the costumes/ wardrobe are pathetic. Believe me when I say I'm a huge fan of B and low budget movies but Planetfall is nowhere near B or cult movie status or even cheap entertainment. I know this movie had a super low budget but part of the charm of a low budget film is that it makes up for it with good acting and characters and a cool story. The 2 women cast in the lead roles couldn't act their way out of a paper bag and their lame characters are hardly strong enough to carry this film. Don't waste your money.

If the extra materials on the disc are to be believed, and the movie was actually made for next to nothing, I think this is showing the kind of technical quality that indie filmmakers need to try for.

Sure, the movie has all the earmarks of low budget... cheesy props, stilted dialogue, bad acting (and good acting too), and some hairpin turns that leave you scratching your head, but overall the film looks like it was made by people who cared about what they were doing

and were having some fun while they did it. Trying ot compare this movie with, say, Serenity (a similarly themed sci-fi sort of thing) would be impossible considering the huge budget gap you'd have to allow for. And frankly, Serenity didn't do this well with the millions they had!

And peaking of extras, I don't think I've ever seen an indie DVD with this much extra stuff on it. Its like they spent more time on the extras than on the actual film! So if extras are a selling point for you, you won't be disappointed.

PLANETFALL(Heretic/Carschool film-o-rama)
Starring: Ted V. Mikels,John Levene and Chaz Truog.

Although the leads remind you of Nicole Kidman and Carrie Fischer,This is NOT their movie.
The computer graphics in PF are fantastic,Really top notch look.I feel talking about the budget HAS nothing to do with the actual film you will see.This is a epic Sci-Fi/Western themed adventure.PF has a rich background story of race struggle and the united search for a most powerful object.The music is really great,Perfect for each scene.At times PF comes off like one of those BBC Sci-Fi efforts,That PBS loves to show when they want us starving US pledgers to call-in donations.Seriously I tried to find something to pick on,If you knew me better,You say sounds too professional for your tastes.If this hadn't taken for so long to film(Gleaned from huge extras included) ,I'd say look for sequels---Too Bad A+ effort.
