Sick Sock Monsters from Outer Space, a film by Alberto Genovese, has been acquired by Troma Entertainment and will see release as part of Troma's July's content on Troma Now, the independent movie studio's video-streaming-on-demand-service that launched this year.

Genovese's wild movie takes place in an unspecified year from the future. Captain Pixws and his crew of space pirate sock puppets are forced to delivery tanning beds to every corner of the universe as their star-ship travels through intergalactic space.


The film pairs psychedelic drugs and EDM and was shot on 35 mm film, much of which depended on the use of green screens behind the sock puppet characters and ultimate incorporation of extensive and skillfully crafted CGI environments and special effects, creating a unique visual style.


Sick Sock Monsters from Outer Space was an Official Selection in 2015 for Italy's Fanta-Festival, Switzerland's Indie Film Festival and the Lumiere Film Fesitval as well as an Official Selection for the 2016 London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film.
