Plastic Monkey Films’ Debut Feature SPACE NINJAS Featuring Battlestar Galactica Legend is Dirk Benedict is NOW Available On Amazon Prime
Plastic Monkey Films has released its first feature film title 'SPACE NINJAS' that is a comedy slash horror slash sci-fi B movie. The film was released earlier this month on Amazon prime in the U.S. and UK.
The stylised sci-fi television show ‘Stranger Than Fiction’, with its charismatic host Jack Strange airs it’s latest episode. This prelude presents a classified incident that allegedly took place at a high school somewhere in Asia. The story introduces five misfit students that are attending a Saturday evening detention.
Skater girl Stanlei, Zack the nerd, Tammy miss popular, Keiko the Japanese exchange student and Omar the jock. Stanlei visits the eccentric science teacher Professor Rosencrantz and after a bizarre discussion involving toast, the laws of gravity and cats she makes her way to detention. She enters just as the deputy head Mr. Hughes concludes his lecture on the student’s behaviour as a result of their punishment.
After an ugly exchange of words between Stanlei and Mr. Hughes, he leaves the students to continue their detention. As the night progresses an elite group of alien SPACE NINJAS invade the secluded school pursuing the students. The group stumble across a very dead Mr. Hughes and once again they find themselves running for their lives as the space ninja assassins make chase. As the hunt continues the body count rises, with each student being killed off one by one. The remaining students seek help from Professor Rosencrantz. Together they decipher why this is happening and devise a plan of escape. But the ninjas begin to close in on the last surviving members for a final showdown. SPACE NINJAS is currently available in the UK and US on Amazon Prime.
