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.
