New films with international success now available online.

A new free cinema resource for fans.

We are talking about the science fiction, adventure, fantasy and horror films that are receiving praise for their creativity and originality from many of the most prestigious film publications, especially in the United States, and in competition at film festivals around the world.

This is a collection of more than twenty films by director Andrea Ricca, a Sociology graduate and graphic designer by profession, in business since 1998.

The films are distributed in the U.S., U.K. and Japan on the Amazon Prime Video platform and the first four most popular are available for free on the author's website:

Full of pace, action, thrills and 3D CG special effects, these films tell science fiction and horror stories inspired by 1950s and 1980s cinema: alien invasions, creatures from outer space, spaceships, paranormal phenomena, zombies, etc. With real actors interacting and acting with computer-made and animated characters.

Some of the most popular films with audiences include "Spider Danger," about a spider turned giant after a meteorite falls, with over 8 million views, and "Aliens Night" on the theme of alien abductions, with 9 million views.

It is an example of the new modes of communication and expression enabled by new technologies such as the Internet and the increasingly affordable prices of filming equipment, which can inspire young people to take up filmmaking.

Those who are fans of science fiction, horror, fantasy, and adventure films can enjoy these films on any device, from tablets to cell phones, suitable for quick web-based enjoyment.

Show business personalities also had words of appreciation, such as director Wes Craven: "Andrea Ricca's films are to be commended."
