Lightning Bug ★★★

Debut for fx wizard Robert Hall who later directed the Laid To Rest flicks, invests us in a moody gem that traces much of his adolescent life and obsession with movie monsters and make up. It's well done, Stars Hellraisers Ashley Laurence in a role written specifically for her, with Laurie Prepon who co produced. Robert Halls friends provide quite a good soundtrack (if your a fan of the ass ponys you'll like Kevin Kinney) and the Alabama setting is great and atmospheric.
