Socks, Drugs and Rock-N-Roll! Sick Sock Monsters from Outer Space, a film by Alberto Genovese, has been acquired by Troma Entertainment and is the exclusive Premiere Movie release from Troma for July's new content on Troma Now (available at watch.troma.com ), the independent movie studio's video-streaming-on-demand-service that launched this year, it was announced today by Lloyd Kaufman, prexy of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger.
Genovese's movie takes place in an unspecified year from the future. Captain Pixws and his crew of space pirate sock puppets are forced to delivery tanning beds to every corner of the universe as their star-ship travels through intergalactic space.
The award-winning Sick Sock Monsters from Outer Space has the visual light and language associated nowadays with pairing psychedelic drugs and Electronic Dance Music, an experience usually available only to those willing to alter their neural mapping.
The dynamic audio visual forces that operate within the galaxies, spacecrafts and from the critters that shuttle through Genovese's movie is no doubt a reflection of the filmmakers bella figura approach to craftsmanship and ingenuity in the Sick Sock Monsters production. Genovese's unexpected choice to use 35 mm film to shoot the movie, much of which depended on the use of green screens behind the sock puppet characters and ultimate incorporation of extensive and skillfully crafted CGI environments and special effects, a thought provoking exploration into the possibilities of new forms in movie making through a mixed-media approach.
Sick Sock Monsters from Outer Space was an Official Selection in 2015 for Italy's Fanta-Festival, Switzerland's Indie Film Festival and the Lumiere Film Fesitval as well as an Official Selection for the 2016 London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film.
