Nostalgic comedy, released in 1993. Directed by Joe Dante and written by Charles S. Haas. Starred John Goodman as Lawrence Woolsey, a producer/promoter of horror movies, along with Cathy Moriarty, Simon Fenton, Omri Katz, Lisa Jakub, and Kellie Martin. Set during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the film focuses on the screening in Key West of a campy B-movie called "Mant" ("Half-Man, Half-Ant, All-Terror!"). The movie's producer, a showman based on real-life producer William Castle, is making extensive alterations to the theater to accomodate the fancy special effects and promoting the hell out of the picture, hoping for a really big premiere. There's a lot of teen subplot, but I think the real point of the movie is nostalgia for the Golden Age of the B-Movie--they just don't make 'em like that anymore...
