Chompy Lou returns to Origins!

Five years after our movie first took to the film festival circuit, we’re returning to one of the first fests to host us: the Origins Film Festival in Columbus, Ohio! Origins is holding a “best of the fest” retrospective as part of this year’s lineup and has made us part of it in what we can only assume was a clerical error. Other titles returning to the Origins screen include the nifty documentaries Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys and Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons.

The Origins Film Festival is part of the Origins Game Fair, a five day convention for tabletop gamers. A game fair badge gets you into the film fest, although we speak from experience when we say the game fair is well worth the visit all its own.

And if you can’t make it in person, the festival is also screening online – you’ll be able to watch along here. We screen both in person and online Saturday, June 11. We hope to see you there!

Andris Reviews reviews us!

The wonderful Andris Reviews took a look at our movie for part of his “Cheap Thrills! Unspeakable Terror!” series and gave us a big thumbs up! He calls it “funny and engaging,” adding “this film literally had me howling at the screen.”

Super Media Bros Puts Us in the Showdown!

The fine folks at the Super Media Bros podcast put Chompy Lou head to head in their latest edition of the Cult Cinema Showdown! Ed and the gang went head to head with the 2016 comedy Spaghettiman, and while (spoiler alert) we lost, they still had some nifty things to say about our dumb little movie. “Stupid” is one; “I died laughing” is another, and we’re taking both as compliments.

iHorror ranks us!

Kelly McNeely of iHorror has included our little movie on her list of ten indie comedies which, in her words, “have mastered the art of parody.” She calls us a “delicious 50s horror parody” which “successfully side-tackles the drive-in monster movie tropes.” Her list puts us alongside such classics as The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and Garth Merenghi’s Darkplace, which is some seriously high praise.
