Prepare to find out just how much influence Famous Monsters Magazine really had on contemporary sci-fi cinema as filmmaker Paul Davids presents a playful look at how yesterday's fanboys became today's blockbuster directors. Comprised of testimonies by such genre-oriented Hollywood heavies as Stephen Sommers, Peter Jackson, and John Landis, The Sci-Fi Boys is a true testament to the power of the imagination. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Doesn't work as even a broad look at sci-fi film history ... nor does it work completely as a tribute to [Forrest] Ackerman thanks to all the additional figures represented."
‑ Christopher Campbell, Cinematical
"Short and sweet and packed with a real affection for classic sci-fi movie-makers, The Sci-Fi Boys should be a treat to anyone who adores the genre."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
