Crazy 8's

Matthew Di Castri and Michael Milo

1992, 85:00 minutes, B&W, English


Set in Generica somewhere in the 20th century, Crazy 8's is a tale of LUST, GREED, MAGIC and REVENGE. Loretta, a veterinarian and Johnny, a ranch hand are hired as legitimate employees of Black Star.
Black Star is really a front for Vince, the owner and mastermind behind its experiments into the genetic engineering of animal organs, sold as aphrodisiacs on the black market.

Loretta soon discovers the reality of Black Star's hidden agenda. Outraged, she and Johnny shut down Vince's operation stealing all research material, formulas, equations and the bi-product of a failed experiment, a young calf.

Vince vows revenge on Loretta and Johnny, who have taken refuge in the nightmarish recesses of Vince's childhood home. The events which follow soon reveal a far greater force at work. Without consent or agreement our characters become pawns in a power play between two opposing dimensions vying for exclusive rights, to this, our reality, MOTHER EARTH.
