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.
