Ah, joooooooooooooooooy!

There are so few films more blissfully complete in their wrongness as "From Here it Came." If you thought The Mummy was a slow moving monster, wait until you see a walking – kind of – living pissed off tree! How could you not love the great Paul Blaisdell's design of the tree god Taranga? Seriously! And that hideous close-up of supposedly handsome Tod Andrews? And the scene in which doctors "operate" on Taranga?

When will Hollywood make a big budget remake of this drive-in classic? When? When? But no CGI. Taranga must be imagined in loving latex.

Perhaps Nicholas Cage will read this and want to remake the film as his latest in a string of really bad career decisions.

One can dream.

When I met filmmaker Dave Parker a few years back, he and his buddies were swapping a screenplay they had in the works that was a remake of -- FROM HELL IT CAME!

It's a natural, Mike.
