Monster of the Day #1370

This one gets honesty points, as the monster on the poster looks exactly as goofy as the one actually in the film.

    Loved the first (esp. the bikini babes), never saw the second. I adore the whole “eye shield protectors” thing. Man, things were so much more fun then :)

  • Man, I wish I had Space Shield Eye Protectors. I’m so tired of being abducted into outer space.

    Can I get a pair of SSEP to match my tin-foil hat?

    Did the operate under the principal of if you cannot see the monster, the monster can’t see you?

  • Eric Hinkle

    I want to see it, but I know I’ll be disappointed. How could any film live up to the promise of that poster?

  • Eric Hinkle

    I wouldn’t mind being abducted into outer space if it was by the likes of the Devil Girl from Mars.

    The Ravenous Bugbladder Beast of Trall…is this the first Hitchhikers reff. we’ve had here?
    Jean Shepard knew the producer of this film, and included it in one of his on-air stories. Fun stuff.

    FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER is one of the greatest titles a producer ever invented. I only wish the movie had lived up to it, more like THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH did. I hate to say it, but this one is pretty dull considering all the cheesy goodness it promises. The co-feature, though, is a really good little flick from our friends in England. Bryant Halliday (sp?) plays a Great White Hunter who falls under the curse of a primitive voodoo tribe and can only break it by hunting down and killing the witch doctor who put the whammy on him. CURSE OF THE VOODOO, which I only saw for the first time a couple months ago, is now my all-time favorite voodoo movie.

    When I was a kid I saw part of an SF movie I was too young to follow. When I read Philip Strick’s SCIENCE FICTION MOVIES I guessed it was FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER. I’m watching it now, but I just realised I no longer have the slightest memory of that film, so I’ll never know if my guess was right!

    Since I’m sort-of on the subject, I once brought up here a film I wanted to identify for my mother, about a pawnbroker who’s an alien. I’m now sure that was an episode of THE OUTER LIMITS, “Controlled Experiment”.

  • Luke Blanchard

    The IMDB tells me it was co-written by Brian Clemens. He was one of the people responsible for THE AVENGERS and had a hand in other thriller/suspense TV shows.

  • Rock Baker

    That certainly makes sense. It feels like such a series entry at times.
