The Ghastly Love of Johnny X

Synopsis: A truly mad concoction, blending 1950s juvenile delinquents, sci-fi melodrama, song-and-dance, and a touch of horror, everything in just the right combination to create an engaging big screen spectacle! This curious and curiously entertaining story involves one Jonathan Xavier and his devoted misfit gang who, incidentally, have been exiled to Earth from the far reaches of outer space. Johnny's former girlfriend Bliss has left him and stolen his Resurrection Suit, a cosmic, mind-bending uniform that gives the owner power over others. Along the way, there will be several highly stylized musical numbers, lots of genuinely humorous dialogue, and a wacky plot-twist or two, all beautifully captured on the very last of Kodak's black-and-white Plus-X film stock.

to keep me company,

all to get away from

Johnny and his pack of jackals.

But a lizard doesn't always have

to be a lizard, Chip.

Just like a soda jerk doesn't

always have to be a soda jerk.

He can change.

Or someone

can change him.

You wanna go for a spin

in my motor-rotor?


Let's go.

I need a little tiger

in my tank.

But my shift,

it isn't-

Your shift?

Chip, what did

we just talk about?

Maybe you need to

shift gears.

I'm going.

Going... I'd like to, I would.

But this is my life,

right here in this diner.

I'm solid gone.


He's here!

See this "A?"


It's an "A" for Annette

Whoa, man!

Do you like my "A?"


Well look at it and like it

'cause it's all that you get

See this "B?"

See this "H? "

It's a "B" for Bobbi

It's an "H" for Hope

Do you like my "B?"

Do you like my "H? "

Well look at what

you like

But can you touch it?


We wanna rage

We wanna fight

We wanna rumble

all through the night

We wanna rip


We wanna roar


We wanna wreck

and then come back for more


Johnny's waiting


Anticipating a brawl

And he won't go far

'Til the tar is beat out

of every one of you all

They wanna

choke they wanna crack

They wanna give

a few heads a whack

We wanna pound

We wanna punch

They wanna bust up

our business lunch

Right! There's nothin'

I like better...

Better than... ...

than breakin' a jaw or two

Oh, yeah!

We wanna rage

We wanna fight We

want to take a big bite

And we wanna begin

Begin Begin Begin

With you!

Sucker! Pulverize him!

Oh yeah,

right there.

Rip his ears off!

That's right- still,

no word on the mysterious


of Cactus Rock

legend Mickey O'Flynn.

Wait a minute, you goons.

I wanna hear this.

A search of O'Flynn's residence
