Frederic Hobbs was an American artist, writer, and director, known for his peculiar style and imagination. His movies have a cult following, especially the Godmonster. This movie was filmed on the Comstock, including Virginia City, Gold Hill, Silver City area, and the classic scene on our very own front lawn. This campy movie is a must see. According to the American Genre Film Archive, it is "so bad, it's good."
This movie is about a sheep embryo exposed to phosphorus gases and raised in a secret lab by Dr. Clemens. The sheep escapes and runs amok, terrifying the town and challenging the law. Meanwhile, politics, greed, and fear challenge a newcomer, Barnstable, arrives in town looking for real estate. Mayhem ensues as only it could on the Comstock in such a film. We will leave the rest as a suprise!
*Note: this movie may not be appropriate for small children
