Beast of Yucca Flats – The Sequel

We’re not making it up.

In 2010, two guys named Leon Cowan and David C. Hayes who apparently had some film school dropouts at their disposal actually made a sequel to the 1961 classic The Beast of Yucca Flats, entitled Return To Yucca Flats: Desert Man Beast.

Amazing trailer that is amazing:

Its IMDb page is certainly odd – somehow the film has garnered a rating of 5.8 from 13 users (which, in comparison to the ratings most movies on this website get, is indescribably high), and the only message board post has been one from an actual actor in the film:

This film was the most FUN I have ever had as an actor. It was efficient, well planned, fast “sunrise to sunset”…done, the ad-libs were funny and the overall selection of actors was tremendous. The Director had his act together and the new process of movie making was more enjoyable than the normal “sit around and wait” process of film making. The production set was fast action for both crew and actors. The make-up artist knew her stuff and at the end of production day I felt incredible satisfaction in participating in this film “Return to Yucca Flats: Desert Man-Beast”. David C. Hayes’ talent and comedic timing helped keep up the smiles of everyone on the set. I have worked with him on several projects, and you can feel his energy when he walks onto the set.

Anyone else who worked on this film, how was your experience?

He actually directly asked other people who worked on the film what they thought. As if he knows the film is so unpopular the only people who would check out the page would be cast and crew members of the film itself. I guess that explains the rating. Indeed, this message board post is two years old and as of now there have been no responses.

Like most crappy independent films, the DVD is stupendously overpriced, and unfortunately it’s only available from Amazon.com (which means us two over in England have no way of seeing it).

But hey, the customer review is probably right.
