Short Film Review: Intergalactic PizzaBoy (2022)

July 4, 2022

Daniel XIII; the result of an arcane ritual involving a King Diamond album, a box of Count Chocula, and a copy of Swank magazine, is a screenwriter, actor, artist, and reviewer of fright flicks…Who hates ya baby?

In the fantastic future year of 20XX, man has reached distant planets, and brought with them the most valuable substance in the galaxy; pizza!

Enter: Intergalactic Pizza delivery dude (Edgar Nevarez), a man that delivers pies galaxy wide in his flying sensible sedan. All isn’t smooth space sailing however as soon our main man has to deal with space pirates and dissatisfied customers (Cosmic Karens?) while trying to take good care of his mental health in the process.

As you can easily surmise from that sinister synopsis up yonder, Jerry S. Gonzalez’s Intergalactic PizzaBoy is a pretty batshit affair… and as you lascivious lot well and truly know, that is just the way yours cruelly digs it!

Running approximately nine minutes (with credits and alien death metal song), this sci-fi short has the vibe of a cartoon that would have hit around the time of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon and Troma’s foray into children’s shows; Toxic Crusaders… all pizza, aliens, and ludicrous scenarios… it’s all rather rad as fuck really.

Add to that the practical creature effects, impressive costumes, and wonderfully cartoony (there’s that word again… or some version of it anyway) visual effects, and you have yourself a bite-sized wicked wonder of a flick indeed!

Intergalactic PizzaBoy is currently beginning it’s festival run, so be sure to keep your putrid peepers peeled so you can catch it when it comes to your town my fiends!
