This is the quintessence of camp, a legendary hit of the fledgling home-video market at the beginning of the 1980s, and also the most popular film by B-movie legend Don Dohler. The main plotline involves Sheriff Jack Cinder’s struggles with aliens who are decimating the residents of a provincial town. Nightbeast is a loving tribute to science-fiction movies of the 1950s, overflowing with absurd scenes and cheesy special effects. The film is accompanied by the original minimalistic music of a teenaged J. J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek).
He was an American film director (1946-2006) known for making low-budget science fiction and horror films as well as work in underground comix and publishing.
