Monster of the Day #1676

An odd little poster for an odd little film. A rip-off of a Frazatta poster? Surely the prostrate native guy in the foreground was a woman in Frazatta’s version.

That Stamp’s ‘character’ is in a hood for 90% of his scenes, meaning the actual name actor probably only had to be on set one day, if that, is shameless and thus highly delightful.

    Did he have a naked Indian?


    I have to ask, didn’t you think it was a trifle unnecessary to see the crack in the Indian’s bottom.

    Yes, absolutely!

    I had the same dream.

    I was reading about some fantasy artist who did book covers (don’t remember his name) who commented that a bare bottom would make any fantasy novel sell better. Bizarrely he claimed it didn’t matter if it were a male or female tush.

    ‘Hey guys! Did you see my last movie ‘The Giant Gila Monster’!?! Great film except the ending where my character is blown up by some greaser punk with his hot-rod! WORST ENDING EVAR!!! My friends and broodmates always waddle out before the end in protest!’

    ‘But this movie is going to rock! Check out the horn on my nose, I’M A FRIGGIN UNICORN!!! The teen-age girl demographic will love me!!! NEXT TEEN IDOL STARDOM HERE I COME!!! ‘

    I naked man may be a sign that a naked woman can’t be too far away ;-)

    A giant lizard, a rifle and a sword ready and these guys are waving “hi”.

    It wasn’t until I saw the director’s name that I finally figured out that this was MYSTERY ON MONSTER ISLAND. That could’ve been so much better. The ending is also a bit silly, even for a kiddie matinee monster movie from Spain.

    Looks like this is rapidly turning into “Peter Cushing trapped on monster island” week. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. :)

    Based on the current trend, I’d half-expect tomorrow’s MOTD to be Shock Waves… except I’m pretty sure Ken’s already covered that flick.

    Aim for the eyes, even if the gun is a 45-70!
