DR. ARCTIC'S CINEMA INFERNO is a hilarious satirical send up of the Canadian Film and Television industry and of all things Canadian.DR. ARCTIC'S CINEMA INFERNO pays homage to the great and no-so-great B movies of the mid-19th Century that tried desperately to terrify their audiences with werewolves, mummies, zombies, and vampires. And with the creative help of pre-recorded short films, projected images, and live video feeds, DR. ARCTIC'S CINEMA INFERNO is ultimately an hysterical, side-splitting comedy that will have you rolling in the aisles.
The story follows the cinematic adventures of two very mediocre film producers, Donald Franklyn and Gerry Stein. After a series of movie flops, including such Canadian horror fiascos as, Hurry Hard, the Curling Bonspiel Massacre, Attack of the Giant Bon Homme! and Pot Smoking Vampires of Vancouver Island, the two inept movie makers take one last shot at film success. Their final idea is to make a film set in Canada's glacial arctic about a mad scientist who is trying to create the perfect evil creature by combining the genomes of all the others, a werewolf, a zombie, a phantom, a mummy, and Godzilla. After convincing two mobsters to lend them production money, they work frantically over three days, with a barrage of talentless and inexperienced actors and crew, to make what will surely be a classic in Canadian film history, DR. ARCTIC'S CINEMA INFERNO.
