The Night of Medusa (2016) / Slave Girls on the Moon (2014) Starring: Joshua Kennedy Director: Joshua Kennedy Joshua Kennedy has been inspired by vintage horror and sci-fi practically since he was born. The Night Of Medusa (2016): Exchange student Elaine Carlisle, fresh off the plane from Greece, enrolls at a university in New York. Her Old World ways quickly make her the target of the school's fraternity. After a particularly heinous prank, one of the co-ed perpetrators ends up in the city morgue. Fearing she is somehow responsible, Elaine faces the truth she has long repressed ... that she is the reincarnation of Medusa, the ancient Greek monster who can turn men into stone. Embracing her power, she will now destroy all those who tormented her... The Night of Medusa is Joshua's tribute to his favorite film, the Hammer horror classic The Gorgon (1964). Lensed on location at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, real snakes were used to create the terrifying "Medusa" effect in actress Haley Zega's hair. Slave Girls On The Moon (2014): In hopes of preventing nuclear war, brilliant (and gorgeous) female scientists Chloe Trustcott and Genevieve Fonda develop a time machine. But the device malfunctions, and Genevieve is catapulted into the far-flung year 8888. Following her colleague through the time portal, Chloe discovers a bizarre future civilization in which all healthy young women have been quarantined on the Moon. She finds Genevieve in this lunar prison, which is fiercely guarded by deranged radioactive mutants. With the help of the other nubile inmates, the girls pull off the most daring jail break of all time... Slave Girls on the Moon combines Joshua's love of 1970's "women-in-prison" films with influences as diverse as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), A Clockwork Orange (1971) and Flash Gordon (1980). It won Best Comedy at the Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival.
