"thoughts, emotions, and pride..."

Um... Mr. Narrator? This is the fifties. Emotion doesn't exist in acting yet.

I am happy to say that even in my worst moments I did not see myself as gross and awkward as that monster

Have to admit, the monster's constant...whatever it is doing, actually creeps me out a little. It just sounds weird.

One of the least plausible things in the film is that the guy at Lover's Lane in the black car with the hipster phrases painted on it (apparently by a 5 year old) was actually able to find a girl to make out with.

Love how the Colonel assures the scientist that his men "will not destroy the monster if they could avoid it." Then, as soon as the troops see it, they start shooting.
Well, except that the filmmaker apparently couldn't afford blanks.

I actually watched this movie without mst3k before I saw this. It's actually funnier without their riffs.

I always wonder what 'wild dancing young people' in these movies are actually dancing to. It usually looks like it's something much better than what is actually being played.

I can't believe MnTB didn't mention that the 'creature' in this film has the ability to transport it's massive bulk from somewhere out in the deserts of California to the inside of an awkward dance hall within the span of a single edit!

Did you catch the marker bit in the host segment with Mike's sound system?
Apparently in the 80's and early 90's audiophiles were convinced that drawing a counter around your CD with a *special* green marker made them sound better. Those markers were sold for around $40, and yes - they are no different than regular green markers.
Audiophiles can be a bit dense sometimes, I admit..

This was a rough movie! Between the apparent inability of the writers to come up with dialogue and the slowest -but apparently most paralyzingly horrifying- monster ever, I may agree with some of the other commentators that this is the worst movie they've ever watched! But the riffs and host segments were very funny!

There are several shots in this film which perfectly encapsulate Clinical Depression. Certain bits of dialogue do that, too. And the characters. And the sound. And the lightning. Just... the film, overall.

Sweet Fanny Adams, but this hurts. Worse than Manos, worse than Fu Manchu, and worse than Monster A-Go-Go. Mike & Friends try, but I still can't manage more than one or two scenes a day. If there was one human being whose birth I could retroactively prevent, it would be the waste of oxygen responsible for this dung heap. Bleah!

You've got to be multitasking and working on something else while this turkey plays. there's nothing redeeming about it, and the sound quality alone is enough to drive you crazy.

As I write, I'm listening to Peter Noone singing Mrs Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter. I was a little disappointed that Crow did not say 'Kitty' in his usual excited chirp for poor David Banks and the rest of us... but Gypsy made up for it by playing her guitar left-handed.

The reason re: sound, from IMDB:According to 'Michael Sauter (I)' 's "The Worst Movies of All Time, Or: What Were They Thinking", the producer lost the original soundtrack in post-production. Unable to get all of the cast back together for dubbing, they were forced to record a narration and use surviving alternate takes to replace it. However, in one interview, William Thourlby indicated that the lack of soundtrack was a cost-savings measure, and that voices were to be dubbed later.

Someone is making a documentary about this film and the crazy,misogynist,alcoholic,drug taking,wife beating nutjob who made and starred in it.Yes the deputy sheriff guy. They recreate the monster and scenes from the movie too! Link here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQTmhHcqHxU check the other trailers too. Guy was far worse than any monster on film.

For a while, I was convinced the filmmakers didn't really care about the quality, because they were focused on pushing an ulterior agenda, like Red Scare Nationalism, or some sort of religious moral. But as the film crept along, and no messages came to the fore, an even more disturbing realization came over me: there was no ulterior agenda. They thought this qualified as an actual movie. The images move, I'll give them that.

So, is this just a city-wide example of humans with no functioning fight-or-flight response? If not, then how have any of these idiots survived on their own this long? They should have all drowned in the shower LONG before the monster showed up.
