In my first journey into the wacky world of Andrea Ricca, I explored nine short films of his that centered around monsters and other big and deadly creatures wreaking havoc on humans. Now, we'll be focusing on a smaller set of his films which center on a different breed of creature: aliens. Ironic that I would be covering a series of alien horror films, after doing a pair of reviews about alien documentaries that (at least partially) tried to dispel the common belief that aliens are inherently dangerous. Nevertheless, I'm sure I'll be able to keep an objective mind when approaching these four films. So without further ado, let's dig in!
We're now in the final leg of this three-part review series, and it's been quite the bumpy ride. While the expedition has unearthed a few diamonds in the rough, there's been just as many duds found along the way. Now, having gone through Andrea Ricca's monster movies and alien flicks, it's time to delve into the last category of this review saga: supernatural horrors. Will the paranormal realm and Andrea Ricca be a winning combination and finish this trilogy on a high note? Let's find out!
Upon being introduced to Andrea Ricca's work via Twitter, I did a little digging and found myself more and more intrigued. Having already been a fan of short horror films, seeing Ricca's website and the eye-catching posters for his works (which are reminiscent of the silly but fun-to-watch science fiction horror movies you see on SyFy or Comet) had my interest piqued. So, for the beginning of this 3-part review series, let's dive into Ricca's colorful filmography and see what his monster flicks have to offer!
