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

"With millions of views under his belt and the acclaim international specialized press, we discover the evocative sci-fi and horror world of Andrea Ricca. The director is a phenomenon who has managed, with millions of accumulated views and a huge passion for fantasy-style cinema and special effects, to create his own space by managing to bring his works to be available on a platform of the caliber of Amazon Prime Video. CINEBLOG (BLOGO) - (https://bit.ly/3K3mm0q)
"More than twenty genre cinema films are available on the site of Andrea Ricca, the celebrated filmmaker specializing in digital effects. There is no greater satisfaction than being able to find new films ready to watch, just a click away. The catalog brings together science fiction, adventure, horror, and fantasy films, where live action casting and filming are married with 3-D CG special effects to create fun, exciting, and certainly creative stories. A talent that is perhaps unmatched on the Italian scene, both in terms of breadth of production and product quality. A winning bet, Ricca's, which has garnered more than 50 million total views, also being distributed on Amazon Prime Video (US and UK), as well as being selected in international cineamtographic festival competitions such as Fantafestival, Miami Film Festival and Texas Terror Film Festival." - SCREENWORLD (https://screenworld.it/cinema/news/i-film-di-andrea-ricca-emozioni-brividi-e-creativita-nel-cinema-di-genere-in-streaming/)
"Seeing his films, it seems as if we are retracing some of the most significant phases of fantasy cinema through reconstructions that sometimes veer into comedy or parody. For example, Spider Danger's inspiration from Jack Arnold's cult Tarantula is stated, and we are in the same vicinity with The Giant Scorpion, where the protagonists are spiders and giant scorpions, respectively (to be clear, that fantasy universe for which Joe Dante performed the magnificent act of love Matinée). With The Furfangs we plunge into the 1980s atmospheres of the various Gremlins, Ghoulies and Critter, with these furry monsters now strictly in CGI. There is no shortage of films that explicitly mention The Thing (Space Monster) and Tremors (Alien Worms). Alien Night and its sequel show classic greenish, deformed extraterrestrials, and in recent times the director has even directed a tribute/parody to the infamous Asylum monster movies." NOCTURNO CINEMA (https://www.altrimondi.org/andrea-ricca-experience/)
"The films, selected by numerous festivals, have met with great success among audiences and critics. Italian director Andrea Ricca's films are gaining strong international response, receiving praise from major publications such as Starburst, RadioTimes, Scream Horror Magazine, Dread Central! With rave reviews and big numbers on the web, the films range from science fiction to adventure, fantasy to horror, with 3D CG special effects! After winning over 50 million viewers online,they have been exclusively distributed in the US and UK on Amazon Prime Video. In addition, numerous symbolic messages are contained within these films, such as the struggle between good and evil, the concrete and the fantastic, reality and dreams. The stories are about heroes at the mercy of monsters, sci-fi and horror creatures. The most surprising aspect? For the realization of his works Andrea Ricca used a small budget! All his works are, in fact, completely self-produced, made without external contributions, but only through the director's talent and passion. A big achievement for independent film art, proving that passion, creativity and technical skill can overcome financial limitations. thanks to the author's website, the public can now view these works from the comfort of home and explore the film collection for free by immersing themselves in an evocative world of monstrous creatures, fantastic events, and heroes fighting for their lives. " THE SOUNDCHECK (https://thesoundcheck.it/2023/07/03/tutti-i-film-di-andrea-ricca-disponibili-gratuitamente-in-streaming/)
Andrea Ricca's is a story that arouses curiosity because of the great difference between the success achieved and the very low budget with which the films were produced.

Below is a description and direct link to the individual works, among those that received the most feedback.
One of the most popular movies is titled: "ALIENS NIGHT" and is about an alien spaceship that arrives on earth near the house where a young biologist lives. Small gray extraterrestrials descend from the spaceship and enter the dwelling, a real alien invasion! These classic big-headed aliens want to abduct her, but the protagonist, after an initial moment of terror, decides to fight back and fight for her life. What will happen? There is definitely a dash of humor but most importantly an unexpected surprise at the end! Los Angeles CineFest finalist. (Direct link: http://www.andrearicca.it/aliens-night.html)
The second most viewed film by audiences is titled: "SPIDER DANGER" Due to the fall of a meteorite, a small spider, kept in a glass case by a collector, becomes giant and starts hunting its owner. The house is filled with spider webs and eggs that will hatch, causing an arachnid invasion! (Direct link: http://www.andrearicca.it/spider-danger.html)
For those who love the paranormal, however, we find: "THE AMULET OF FEAR" a Stephen King-style homage to horror. In an old house a girl finds an ancient amulet that has the magical property of making the fears of its possessor real, and when the protagonist begins to read a Stephen King book entitled: "The Creature" the latter comes to life and begins to hunt her down. Danger is imminent and not even gunshots will be able to stop the monstrous creature (fully computer-generated in 3D graphics) so the protagonist will have to use all her wits to overcome her nemesis. Between thrills and action. http://www.andrearicca.it/the-amulet-of-fear.html)
The most critically acclaimed film is titled: "THE GIANT SCORPION" which has garnered more than 2 million viewers online, being selected by many Film Festivals and receiving international reviews. "There is an energy and exuberance in the film that is impossible not to be drawn in by." Starburst Magazine. "What could be better than a beautiful girl sleeping sweetly under a 1980s issue of "Fangoria" magazine and fighting monsters with a sharp blade?" Horror News. http://www.andrearicca.it/the-giant-scorpion.html)
"FANTASTIC TALES" is a full-length episodic science fiction, horror and adventure film that spans various genres and places of the imagination, from alien invasions to paranormal experiences to giant creatures and many other stories of varying lengths, in the wake of classics such as: Twilight Zone and Amazing Stories. Rich in digital effects, the episodes are based on a mix of thrills, action and terror that takes the viewer from one fantastic adventure to the next. The script is by the director himself, as is the production for Andrea Ricca Presents srl. The director also handled the digital effects together with Matteo Migliorini, Gennaro Acanfora. Finally, the music is by Antonio De Luise and Gianfilippo De Mattia. http://www.andrearicca.it/fantastic-tales.html)
