It was a Colossal Teenage Movie Machine!: The American International Pictures Story (2015)
Chattanooga Film Festival 2016
Back at the beginning of April, I was able to go to the Chattanooga Film Festival with Mass Listeria (thanks again, Daniel and Tim, for bringing me on board...puns and all). For four days, the Majestic Theater in Chattanooga was filled with movie lovers of all shapes and sizes. Comedy, horror, drama, documentaries, short films, animated films, independent films...the festival had movies for everyone, regardless of tastes. Over the next several posts, I will be posting my reviews of the movies that I saw there (in the order that I saw them). Next up - It was a Colossal Teenage Movie Machine!: The American International Pictures Story.
I'll be providing the description of the films provided in the Chattanooga Film Festival program and trailers via YouTube, when available. The descriptions and the trailers of the movies might let you know what they are about, but if you want to know what I thought of them...well, you are just going to have to give the podcast a listen.
The CFF program description for It was a Colossal Teenage Movie Machine!: The American International Pictures Story was: Bug-eyed aliens! Towering monsters! Swinging surfers! Tripping hippies! Rowdy bikers! The 1950s and 1960s wouldn't have been the same without American-International Pictures. While major studios were bankrolling "prestige" films for adults, this atomic-age movie company produced low-budget, exploitation fare for the drive-in audience.
