Legendary horror and dark fantasy film studio Full Moon Features (founded by
producer / director Charles Band in 1989) is world-renowned for wild films
like PUPPET MASTER, CASTLE FREAK, SUBSPECIES, EVIL BONG and many, many more.
But nestled among Full Moon's vast entertainment universe sits Moonbeam
Entertainment, the beloved '90s imprint that housed Band's series of
imaginative (and successful) fantasy films.
Beginning in 1993 and
continuing well into the late '90s, Moonbeam Entertainment released dozens of
remarkable (and hugely popular) horror, sci-fi and fantasy movies made for
children and families. Now, Full Moon is thrilled to be bringing back many of
those marvelous pictures from the Moonbeam library, starting with the film
that started it all: PREHYSTERIA!
Anticipating the success
of JURASSIC PARK, this 1993 VHS-era favorite follows the misadventures of
Jerry Taylor (Austin O'Brien, THE LAST ACTION HERO), a 12 year old
Elvis-loving kid and his sister Monica (Samantha Mills), whose raisin farmer
dad Frank (Brett Cullen, GHOST RIDER) accidentally brings home a bundle of
rare eggs unearthed in the rainforest by Rico Sarno (Stephen Lee, DOLLS), an
sinister museum curator. Suddenly, the eggs hatch, unleashing a pack of
diminutive dinosaurs that the kids name after their favorite rock and pop
music stars - Elvis, Jagger, Madonna, Paula, and Hammer. But when Sarno finds
out about the dinos, he'll stop at nothing to get his hands on them and its
up to Jerry and Monica to protect their new "family".
This wild and hilarious
comedy / fantasy classic features top-notch stop-motion special effects by
the great David Allen (PUPPET MASTER, LASERBLAST) and is ready to be embraced
by a new generation of children and kids of all ages looking for charming,
eccentric retro-genre entertainment. Full Moon is pleased to present PREHYSTERIA in a
remastered, high-definition transfer taken from the original 35mm camera
