The Monster Man (2001)

In the year 2210, the world as we know it has been wiped out by a virus sent here by aliens — aliens that look like ninjas with pillowcases over their heads. Now, their leader Lord Gideon (Conrad Brooks, yes, from Ed Wood’s movies) has sent these alien ninjas to destroy the last two people alive, Jake (director and writer Jose Prendes) and Katherine Great (Denice Duff, Michelle Morgan from Bloodstone: Subspecies II and Bloodlust: Subspecies III and the director of Song of the Vampire; if you’re going to be alone with just one woman, you really are doing find if it’s Denice Duff).

Beyond Prendes being decent at kicking and punching, he was smart enough to go to a convention and pay Tom Savini and Linnea Quigley to do a scene, which is probably some of the reasons why some people watched this.

Prendes is still making movies, writing stuff like Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark and directing 2022’s Headless Horseman. He thanks marshmallows in the credits, which seems like the right thing to do after watching this.

Who would think of making Omega Man on the budget of what Will Smith drank in soda on each day of I Am Legend? Joe Prendes. That’s who.
