Laser Blast Film Society: STAR KID (35mm)

“STAR KID has a sweet heart and a lot of sly wit.” – Roger Ebert

“THE GUYVER meets E.T.” – Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed

THE LASER BLAST FILM SOCIETY once thrilled you with the lo-fi lunacy of THE SKID KID, but this month we’re about to send you into orbit with the slick shenanigans of STAR KID. Starring JURASSIC PARK and BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY’S Joseph Mazzello as a pitiable prepubescent protagonist thrust into a sentient cybernetic battle suit, this delirious late 90’s children’s film has fallen between the cracks of nostalgia, but is rife with hysterical comic action and sparkly pyro-laden spectacle. Gleefully written and directed by Manny Coto (the auteur behind the cult slasher DR. GIGGLES), STAR KID skirts that sublime line of mischief that never quite becomes irresponsibly R-Rated, but is certifiably deranged.
