New: Sand Serpents

This looks rather interesting:

Sand Serpents will be premiering on the newly branded SyFy Channel on July 11 -- in a creature feature summer that includes Kyle Rankin's giant bug flick Infestation, Rick Schroder's mythological Hellhounds, Ace Hannah's Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus and Kristoffer Tabori's High Plains Invader, which stars James Marsters as "an Old West outlaw whose hanging is conveniently interrupted by ... an assault by oversized alien insects, leading him to become a reluctant hero."

Still Eating Bakersfield

Hank Ray Harwood has sent along a melodic teaser made up of test footage for his in-production film, Giant Ants Eat Bakersfield. Harwood commented to Kaiju Search-Robot Avery: "This is just a music video to start an interest in the film. The actual film is going to take quite a while. None of the footage thus far is good enough..."

He describes the film, which features giant ants attacking Bakersfield, as offering "a metaphor for corporate entertainment that stole Bakersfield's music legacy."


More Ghoul Girl Pictures

Here's two more images from Attack of the 50 Foot Ghoul [Girl], a kid-friendly monster from director Brian Nichols and his over-sized daughter. The film will premiere at Monster Bash in June at Butler PA.

Music for the movie will be provided by Kevin Slick, seen below in the recording studio at work on a 1950s style rock 'n' roll number for the retro monster flick.

Update: Reptisaurus

The wait to see a release of Chris Ray's Reptisaurus has been a long one. Apparently a US DVD release is on the way, but meanwhile here is the cover for the Japanese release, which happens on 10 June. Oddly enough, the film has been retitled "Sky Fighter" for that market.

Cleavagefield: The Slime

We haven't heard much of Cleavagefield for a while -- but I have a question for you. Do you want to see some chicks with prominent cleavage get slimed by the titular monster? Well, here it is:

Update: Megaconda

Chris Ray's new giant snake flick, Megaconda, has just finished major photography and has gone into its potentially lengthy post-production SFX phase.

The director's famous father, Fred Olen Ray, has given us an exclusive look at some scenes from the film. None of these include any glimpses of the titular monster (as it has to be added via digital effects as Ray was unable to cast it through the usual call-out), but the teaser poster provides a possible view of the critter (remember, it's early days yet).

One of the key villains is the zbot:
