The Schlock Zone Drive-in website seems to have gone dormant which is a shame because I have liked everything that has come out of there so far. Mostly because I am a fan of basic story telling over the paint-by-George-Romero scheme writing that seems to dominate everything now. Buck Hanno's story harkens back to the genuine 50's & 60's which was not as bad as most younger people believe. The artists of that time worked with what they had, which was a low budget and not much in the way of production gizmos at hand. Even though Hanno's story is a parody he captures the basic essence of the era that starts and ends with fully believing in what you are creating no matter how far out from reality the journey takes you. To me this form of schlock is a revisit of the ancient morality play. Simply put, if you do not know right from wrong, bad things will happen and if you add a mad scientist with a private genetic research lab, a gang of rich kid hooligans, a heroine in a wheelchair and a reluctant hero not afraid to wear his underwear on the outside of his pants when the call comes; well then you have some story!
