When I moseyed on down to Comic-Con this year, I took some time to hook up with the Raw Studios boys, whom we’re big fans of. In doing so, I was able to meet the writer of their most recent (at the time) fare, Mark Hosack, who had penned the fun noir flick Give ‘Em Hell Malone. At the time of my review I had mistakenly stated that it was Hosack’s first feature, though in actuality he wrote and directed Pale Blue Moon back in 2003. The film has a small footprint as of now (59 votes on IMDb) that all that is about to change as the film has emerged from a legal dead zone to finally secure distribution. When a release date for the DVD is set, we’ll let you know, but in the mean time, how about you take a look at the trailer?
The film follows Detective John Lefsberg, a man who’s life is crumbling after the death of his son, who is assigned to escort the eccentric, homeless, alien invasion doomsayer Simon Applewhite to a nearby psychiatric ward. As you’ll see in the trailer, Simon believes moon-dwelling aliens are set to invade and destroy Earth and only he knows the secret to stopping them. While at first everyone dismisses him as crazy, a strange series of events may indicate there is something more to this story.
Pale Blue Moon definitely looks interesting with a good mix of humor, nipples, and strange alien imagery tossed in for good effect. Hosack’s second feature (Malone) won him some points with us for its clever and entertaining mix of humor, noir, action, and a hard assed Tom Jane. It’s good to see his first project finally seeing the light of day and we’ll assuredly get a hold of a review for you as soon as we can. Oh, and on a side note – writer/director Mark Hosack cut this trailer, and the Malone trailer, himself.
What do you think of the Trailer for Pale Blue Moon?
