In 1994, aspiring Niagara, Ontario filmmaker Erica Benedikty was working part-time at a community cable channel. Over the course of a year – and aided by a dedicated team of friends, volunteers and fellow film rebels – she wrote, produced, directed and edited a wildly ambitious, feature-length sci-fi action thriller for only $250. But when she convinced her employers to broadcast the finished film, PHOBE became a local sensation, was invited to screen at festivals, and remains one of Canada’s most infamous cult hits. Intervision is proud to present Benedikty’s ultra low-budget epic – complete with impressive visual FX, Roman candle pyrotechnics, alien predators, light saber battles and space cops with mullets – now fully remastered with all-new Special Features that reveal the strange, inspired and sometimes tragic story behind this near-impossible DIY triumph.
