If you haven’t filled your cringe quota for the day, this may have you covered.
Take a look at the trailer released for Unbelievable!!!!! (yes, the title officially comes with five exclamation marks), a Star Trek spoof featuring a puppet Captain Kirk Stillwood.
Writer-director Steven L. Fawcette has managed to, somehow, get over 40 previous Star Trek cast members to appear, among them Garrett Wang, Chase Masterson Tim Russ, Armin Shimerman, Vaughn Armstrong, and Gary Graham. They also managed to hire Gerald Fried, an Emmy-Award winning composer who worked on the original Star Trek series. Unbelievable, indeed.
The film is executive produced by Snoop Dogg, who also stars. Michael Madsen is also in it, because of course he is.
This proudly D-grade, cheap-looking parody could find a following among the smoke-filled dens. Or, hell, maybe everyone will find it funny and we’ve got a parody classic on our hands. Something tells me the latter isn’t quite realistic.
Unbelievable!!!!!, which started production in 2013, will be getting a release this year sometime.
Synopsis for Unbelievable!!!!!:
Three astronauts along with their Fearless Leader Puppet Companion Captain Kirk Stillwood, travel to the Moon on a rescue mission to determine the fate of two Aeronautical Space Systems (A.S.S.) comrades who have not been heard from in several days. The individuals they find at the Lunar Base are not whom they appear to be and, through acts of trickery and deception, nearly succeed in killing them. The four return to find that everyone on the planet has been transformed into a exotic plant-life. These KILLER plant-aliens have conquered Earth and now seek to destroy the last remnants of humanity! The astronauts fight back and soon discover how to rid themselves of the killer alien threat.
