Our week of low-budget monster movie premieres kicks off with this mélange of ’50s sci-fi tropes: juvenile delinquents, aliens, flying saucers and, of course, musical numbers.
Ok, that last one is a bit of curveball but Johnny X makes it all look gorgeous with the last batch of Kodak’s Eastman Plus-X black and white film stock.
In the same vein as The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and the films of local filmmaker Christopher R. Mihm, Johnny X should fit right in in the town that birthed Mystery Science Theater 3000.
The Ghastly Love of Johnny X
