Huh... between the tasteless rape riffs, the ugly-on-many-levels attitude of the short, and the unlikable characters... this was probably the hardest one for me to sit through so far. Yikes.


Legitimately curious...

WHY did they title the movie "Pod People"? Is it because the alien eggs are sort of like pods? Is it because the acting is just that wooden and unnatural? Or is it because they wanted to piggyback off a legitimately good movie remake that had come out a few years prior? (That's my guess.)

The most painful part is that it's actually fairly easy to make the time dilation plot device work just fine, if they just explained it a little more accurately...

We'll see the basic premise of this plot many more times in the theater - mad scientist uses his brainchild to take revenge on scientists who called him crazy before losing control of it. Kudos to Glenn Strange, I did actually sorta feel bad for Pedro.

Fun fact: the original release of the movie was titled "Swamp Women", and had the tagline "Women with a lust for men!"

Welcome to the 50's.

MST3KInfo actually provides a bit of context for the Calypso song at the end: in 1956, Harry Belafonte scored a huge hit with his song "Banana Boat". It was popular because it was upbeat and fun and different and Belafonte was a very charming singer. Problem was, music distributors misread the room and caused a brief "Calypso Boom" for a few months before it petered out.

Did anyone tell these dolts that the creature might not want or need revenge if they didn't keep jabbing him with the pain stick?!

All right, I'll come right out and ask it: What IS the Dark One? I thought it was some kind of Skynet-style supercomputer, but it turns out to be some kind of plant-fungus-leech thing?...

This movie reminds me of the Rob Zombie "Halloween" remake where Michael Myers being a psychotic murderer is laid at the feet of "His mom was a stripper, his dad yelled at him, and his sister smacked him around sometimes". Um, no.

I'm still shaking my head at the very end. So the old dude insists Ator not kill Zor because it would lower him... somehow. Uh, HOW many thugs and mooks did Ator stab and bomb and kill to get into the stupid castle?!
