Films of the Lowry Brothers
Richard & Tor
Richard and Tor Lowry have been guerrilla filmmakers since the 1980s, when they made "Hawk Jones" as teenagers. Two of their movies, 'Wicksboro Incident' and 'Hawk Jones', have developed a strong following on the internet.
Their recent movie, 'Rapture', is their most ambitious effort. 'Rapture' was directed by Richard and produced by Kimber Eastwood
A group of strangers band together as they run for their lives trying to survive. All around them, however, the human population is being decimated.
Produced by Kimber Eastwood, "Rapture" is one of the Lowry Bros. most anticipated of projects.
Monarch of the Moon
In January of 2007, 'Monarch of the Moon' was released jointly by Dark Horse Indie Films and Image Entertainment. Directed by Richard Lowry with Tor Lowry this time doing the special effects. Packaged together with 'Destination Mars,' the film has been labeled as a "must see" by many critics, and was one of Leonard Maltin's 2007 picks on his film review program, "Secret's Out," on the Reelz Channel.
In 1994, Tor wrote a screenplay for 'Destination Mars,' a 1950's Sci-Fi spoof, that received rave reviews upon its release, from the likes of Leonard Maltin, who referred to it as the "best 1950's Sci-Fi spoof ever made."
The renowned film critic, Harry Knowles enjoyed the film so much in 2001, that he kicked off his annual film festival in Austin, Texas, continuing an elaborate myth that had been created as a method of creating "hype" for the film. Later, he commented that the film was "the most talked about" of the festival.
Richard and Tor made 'Hawk Jones' while they were still teenagers. 25 years later 'Hawk Jones' has developed a small following on the internet. It was recently featured on two cable shows, one show naming it 'the fourth most sought after movie on VHS.'
Recently, a new version of 'Hawk Jones' has been released. The print is better and the effects have been revamped.
