Dr. Audley Salmon is the resident mad scientist toiling in his mysterious lab in the basement. The inn’s maid is mute and its bellboy speaks like a poor man’s Poe.

Synopsis: It is a dark, dank, odorous evening – a storm rages outside a gloomy Gothic mansion. Inside, a man much like Vincent Price (without the cuddly demeanor) sits in a large leather swivel chair, smoking a pewter crack pipe. He is our host, Vincent Von Suckles, and under his guidance the gruesome tale unfolds.
A mutated vampire with extraordinary and extremely unnatural thirsts rises from his grave. One of his victims is a tidy, obsessive-compulsive named Nicole Ridley, who is later found “dying” by her enraptured, animal-loving fiancé, Robert Spavor. Sadly, not understanding the nature of the attack on his girlfriend, Robert and his animals struggle in vain to save her. A broken man, he stumbles off to a bar intending to drown his overwhelming sorrows. Meanwhile, the city is being terrorized by the wantonly vicious attacks of the newly-born vampire Nicole. Her lurid escapades soon attract the attention of the Head Vampire himself. And it is not long before this same lusty, disgusting behaviour is drawn to the attention of her ex-lover, who then realizes the intense gravity of the situation.
Will Robert’s love for Nicole triumph over death? He will make it so, or die trying! He enlists the help of his troubled, childish friend Terry and together they wage a war against these new grotesque vampire mutations that culminates in the silliest, most vulgar, blood-stained, gory epic battle ever created!

Space Zombies: 13 Months of Brain-Spinning Mayhem! (the movie script) - AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE BUT NOT TO LICENSE...this puppy has already been produced!
This feature film is also available as three short films. The three shorts are entitled Space Zombies: Terror from the Sky!, Space Zombies II: Monsters Unleashed, Unabridged, and Unplugged!, and Space Zombies III: The Incredible Duel-Headed Cat Freak!. Co-written by Regan W. H. Macaulay & Kevin Risk.
Forward: Space Zombies: 13 Months of Brain-Spinning Mayhem! is a feature film shot on digital video that pays homage to B-Movies of the 50s, 60s and 70s – in particular the films of Edward D. Wood Jr. Though unintentional, the idiosyncrasies and errors that go into these ‘terrible’ but endearing and highly enjoyable films have created a style and a cult following. It was the filmmakers’ desire to delve deeper into this style through the making of a parody film that emulates B-Movies down to the last detail, but within a modern context, as if created today. The result is a hilarious film study, both entertaining and enlightening. There is a definite art to creating something ‘bad’, particularly if you are doing it on purpose!
Space Zombies: 13 Months of Brain-Spinning Mayhem! is the culmination of a trilogy of short films: Space Zombies: Terror from the Sky!, Space Zombies II: Monsters Unleashed, Unabridged and Unplugged! and Space Zombies III: The Incredible Duel-Headed Cat Freak! The feature aired on SPACE: The Imagination Station and Drive-In Classics in Canada between 2004 and 2007. The first episode appeared separately on SPACE, Drive-In Classics, and SCREAM between 2003 and 2006.
Synopsis: Even the sanest and kindest of men goes mad. But what is it that drives him to insanity? What you are about to read is a description of the circumstances under which one man, Veterinarian Dr. Vic McNaughton, goes horribly, horribly, and irretrievably mad…is it the aliens seeking human brains for snacks? Zombies seeking to switch their brains with the brains of cats? Monster toad beasts? Starfish mutations? Dr. Vic and his staff experience all of these adventures, but it is the Space Zombies’ experiments switching the thought essences of Dr. Vic’s wife Betsy with those of his beloved cat Ju-Jube that eventually push him over the edge. His solution is obvious – his wife and darling pet must be combined, but first he must test his theories on some other unsuspecting humans and cats. What results is a truly terrifying travesty – a duel-headed cat freak that defies his master and embarks on a frightening rampage. It is only through this cataclysmic event, along with the prodding of Vic’s staff and his friends, including the very Space Zombies who helped him create the two-headed creature in the first place, that finally snaps Vic out of his maniacal trance, and he begins to see the light. Only when things are put right again – when minds and bodies are matched, does Dr. Vic’s world simmer to a sane temperature again.
