I predict "The Ghastly Love of Johnny X" will grow to become a cult favorite like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Mark my words! I have had the opportunity to see this picture in both DCP and on real 35mm film. It looks great in either medium, but the film print adds a certain hard-to-define quality that is woefully missing in most cinema presentations today.
discovered it's existence 2 months ago. "THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY X"
from director/writer, Paul Bunnell and starring Will Keenan, Creed
Bratton, Reggie Bannister & the late, Kevin McCarthy. I loved it.
It's a retro 50's period piece involving a gang of greasers from outer
space called, The Ghastly Ones, "serving time" on Earth for their
intergalactic shenanigans. A post-dead rock star, a straight edge hero,
a slime ball concert promoter, manipulative heroines, and a Tor
Johnson-esq thug....all brought together with fantastic musical numbers
and perfect locations/sets....it's a pure, fun popcorn flick great for
all ages and highly recommend checking this gem out!
Surprisingly entertaining - a low budget labor of love by a talented director.
Oh, and I should mention the use of black-and-white. Simply GORGEOUS! This film reminded me of the old B-movies I used to catch at the local drive-in theater, or on the late, late shows like "Elvira: Mistress of the Dark" or "Svengoolie".
The director, Paul Bunnell, who began this project in 2004, made us wait 10 years for his masterpiece. Was the wait worth it? Hard to say. I did enjoy watching it, sitting on my sofa cramming face-fulls of popcorn. But would I pay Cinema prices? Probably not.
The cast included Reggie Bannister, who I've not enjoyed this much since"Phantasm". We also get cameos by Paul Williams and Kevin McCarthy (in his last movie role). Mr. Bunnell even bases one character on Tor Johnson, who graced many of Ed Wood's worst films.
