New Interview + Oh My Goth Movie Updates

A new interview, by Lost In A Good Book, has been put on the Interviews-page.

A few articles and blogs on Voltaire’s movie deal has begun appearing, and Vorutania now has a page for the movie.

This is the plot description, via FearNet:

When the reanimated skeletons of Necronus, a cemetery planet across the dark expanse of space, decide they need Earth paved into a landing strip, they send, possibly the worst of their agents to undertake the task. Arrogant, pompous and not the brightest laser in the arsenal, Heironymous Poshe , takes on human form and travels to Earth aboard his Black Spire, a space ship that could easily pass for a giant, black cathedral. However, Poshe has plans of his own, namely to avoid a desk job on the Necrid home world and live a life of leisure in a fixed orbit above Earth. For centuries, Poshe (along with his robot slave and an imprisoned midget) has avoided his prime directive. Instead he has spent his time abducting Earth women, celebrities and bands for a non-stop, nightly party above the Black Spire.

But Poshe’s days of care-free, hot-babe abduction are coming to an end. Tired of Poshe’s lack or results, Lord Krom Wrath, supreme ruler of the Necrus, launches a full scale invasion of Earth. Poshe bands with the only people on Earth who understand his cause (a group of Goth kids, a cadre of ninja priests and a small army of Hasidic Rabbis- ironically, all of them people who wear all black!) to repel the oncoming armada of Necrid ships. The final space battle is the “Jews in Space” Mel Brooks promised us and never delivered!”
