We Made Sonic Cinema's End of Year Movie Review!

Brian Skutle at Sonic Cinema calls "Zorg and Andy:" "a goofy and hilarious indie comedy about phallic statues and ancient occults that is like a Matt Groening cartoon done in live-action…as zany as a "Simpsons" episode with the production values of an Ed Wood film- the result is the type of high-concept comedy we don't see much anymore."

Many thanks, Brian! Check out the other films on his list here!

You can order your "Zorg" DVD or digital downloads here or here!

The All-mighty, Yet Benevolent Zorg ™ wishes you all a very happy New Year! All hail me!

Pants and Kidneys: Film Festival Report

Thanks again to the Wet Your Pants Comedy Film Festival for showing "Zorg." We had a great time, we met some nifty people and we hopefully helped some kidneys. We do so love the kidneys.

Also, they gave us a gift bag. And snacks. As independent filmmakers, we consider it a good day when we don't get slapped. So to receive not only approval but swag? Well, we're going to be friends forever.

In addition, people finally got the "Baal State University" joke. Hard to ask for more than that.

Don't forget, people: love your kidneys. Because they love you.

"Zorg" - Kitschy Goodness!

Fatally Yours says, "'Zorg and Andy' is remarkably fun...a film reminiscent of the drive-in creature features of the 1950s: A little over the top, a little silly, and that time tested formula of idyllic Americana up against something truly arcane... With more than a few laughs, a lovable cast, and a brand new reason to fear your college economics professor, Zorg and Andy gets my seal of approval."

Many thanks to Michael Varrati!

Another Great Review!

This one from Sonic Cinema:

"Writer V.Z. Montengo and director Guy Davis take 62 minutes to do what some filmmakers can’t do with 92 minutes- make a high-concept comedy that’s funny and engaging, not to mention original."

See for yourself--buy a copy today!

Read the rest at the Sonic Cinema site. Many thanks to Brian Skutle!

Three Out of Four Cigars!

Rogue Cinema's review of "Zorg and Andy" says, "'Zorg and Andy' is one of the most innovative indie comedies I've seen in quite some time." And, "It's quirky and odd and laugh out loud funny...and, in the end, I'm pretty anxious to see if Andy has another adventure in him."

Many thanks to Brian at Rogue Cinema! Sequel anyone?

Latest "Zorg" Review -- Rated 8/10!

Here's a sample:

"'Zorg and Andy' is a fantastic microbudget comedy, a perfect marriage of cheesy exploitation, silly science fiction, and brainy humor. Davis and crew should be extremely proud of their accomplishment; these insanely talented individuals have somehow managed to pack an absurd amount of fresh, well-executed material into a breezy 60-minute package, a feat that's even more astounding when you take into consideration their complete lack of funding. Which just goes to show that the only tools required to craft an entertaining motion picture are talent and dedication, plain and simple. Imagine that."

Read the rest of the review at Bloody Good Horror (many, many thanks, Todd)! And then consider going here to buy a DVD!

Zorg will be pleased if you do (and you really, really want to please Zorg)!

Kudos to "Zorg" Musicians!

From The Movies Made Me Do It review: "The "soundtrack music" was what really stood out, though. Several... bands were used, and all put in great performances. I'd recommend looking into the works of Kevin MacLeod, Twizzle, Coconut Monkeyrocket, and Otis Fodder."

We recommend it, too! Many, many thanks to our fantastic musicians for letting us use their tunes!

Another Review!

"Zorg and Andy is a low-budget feature with a lot of what makes independent movies so intriguing; the glorious smacking of ambition."

"Run, don’t walk! to the internet to catch this light and fast b-movie surprise!"

Read the entire review here and remember, "Zorg" will soon be available through Film Baby on DVD and digital download. But in the meantime, just send us an email and we'd be happy to ship you out a pre-release copy for the low, low price of only $12! You can't beat that with a fertility idol! So, what are you waiting for? Get your copy today and don't anger Zorg!

"Zorg" DVD Sales!

We're extremely excited to announce that "Zorg and Andy" DVD's and digital downloads will be available for purchase soon, thanks to our friends at Film Baby!

Unfortunately, "Zorg" probably won't be live on the site until near the end of October, and it's come to our attention that quite a few people (with, it must be pointed out, extraordinary taste in cinema) would like to have a copy of the movie in time for Halloween (in one lovely case, in order to be able to replace "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" with "Zorg" as the featured movie of the evening).

On so many levels, we can't begin to tell you how happy this makes us.

Fear not, "Zorg" fans! We have DVD's available for purchase right now, in plenty of time for all of your October festivities!

Just send an email to and let us know where you'd like us to ship your order, and we'll get it right out to you. The only downside is that we can't take credit card orders until our Film Baby account is up and running, so you'll have to pay for it the old-fashioned way and send us a check for $12 per copy ($10.00 for the DVD, plus $2.00 for shipping and the requisite handling) to:

Guy Davis
5415 E. McKellips Rd, #67
Mesa, AZ 85215

We know you're good for it, so as soon as we get your email, we'll send Zorg on his way to you.

Because no one should have to celebrate Halloween, or Leif Ericson Day (or any other day in October, for that matter), without a copy of "Zorg" close at hand.

Get yours today!

A View from the Inside

As you can see, the audience is clearly not rioting. If there's another definition of a successful screening, I don't know what it is.

A few observations: The audience actually laughed quite a lot. Even the ones who weren't directly related to the production. A couple of rows in front of us, there were two women who were clearly there in some professional capacity and as the movie unspooled I could see them getting more and more into the story. It was gratifying.

The biggest laugh of the night? Guy's sound design during the final chase sequence, where the soundtrack music is synced up with the opening and closing of the stairway door. Guy, who cut enough jokes in post-production to make the writer weep tears of blood, got the biggest laugh of the night with his editing.

Thanks, Guy.

And congratulations, you big lug. It was awesome.

A New Trailer!

Because you can never have enough trailers.

The Post You Were Wondering if You'd Live Long Enough to See!

After only a mere three years in post, "Zorg and Andy" is finally complete! Hard to believe, I know, but it's true (check us out here, it's right there in black and white).

We've got a lot going on right now, including a website redesign that will be up soon (check back often!), and the creation of a press kit and promotional materials.

We also have a new Facebook page, thanks to Scott. Drop by and say hello!

And I want to let you know that we have a new teaser trailer up, both on Facebook and Youtube. More trailers are in the works. Let us know what you think!

See? I told you there was a lot going on.

Our plan in the coming months is to continue to submit the movie to festivals, as well as begin sending it out for review. Assuming said reviews are spectacular, we'll be posting links to them soon! Unspectacular reviews will be rewritten and then posted.

Regarding DVD's, initially they'll only be available for sale at festival screenings, but I imagine we'll start self-distribution sometime later this year. And once that happens, we'll need everyone's help to get the word out.

Of course, all cast and crew members will receive a free copy of the movie, so we'll be sending out an email soon to make sure we have everyone's most recent address. Timeframe to get those out should probably be in the next month or so. But, I appear to be timeframe-challenged, so bear that in mind.

And finally, we want to start planning for that long-awaited premiere! Details to come (and we'd love to hear any of your ideas, too)!

All for now. Thank you all for your patience and continued support!
