Astro Chase Studios have announced the 2014 release of Howard Cartridge’s new film The Bags of Earth.  Cartridge is no stranger to science fiction and horror fans having made a series of genre-bending films in the 1970’s and 1980’s.  “No question, Asteroid Avoiders II: Going Back was probably my biggest hit,” noted the man himself.  “We sold a lot of asteroid avoider toys, comics, bedsheets and paper towels.  But with Bags, I’m looking for something a little more profound and meaningful.”  Indeed, Cartridges was gracious enough to give us a short interview while wrapping up shooting of Bags.
