Monster of the Day #258

I can’t help it, I love the fact that people used to build suits and props like this.

    The mouth on this thing always freaked me out.

    Props like this are certainly works of art. It’s a shame that so few have survive, a loss to the museums of the future.

  • The Rev.

    Ah, Ken tricked me. The MotD’s not what I thought it’d be.

    I wanted to like this movie better, but when there aren’t critters onscreen it kind of drags.

  • Ha, can’t fool you guys! So much for my ringer.

    Yeah, it’s weird how dull this movie can be considering it’s constantly entirely insane. Still, I think it would be a great crowd film. I’m sure Sandy or I will show this at a T-Fest some year.

    The theme song is as cool in its own, weird way as the one for GREEN SLIME.
    I wonder, is there a compilation disc of theme songs for guys like us?

  • KeithB

    I think Ken is like God. (No, seriously, wait a second!)

    If someone publishes a guess to the next MOTD, Ken will just change it if it happened to be correct.

    I think God does that with the Second Coming. Even if Harold Camping had coincidentally been right about this Saturday, God would change it just so no one would have predicted it correctly.

  • John Campbell

    I must concur with the sadness at the loss of so much great “art”. Hoaky as some of it may be, it’s still cool stuff.

  • KeithB

    I wonder if the re-make of “Invaders from Mars” had to recreate the Martian-leader-in-the-globe prop that had a cameo in the background, or whether they found it somewhere.

  • Rock Baker

    A pleasent time-waster for a weekend evening. I either have or used to have a publicity still from The Lost Continent that had just about every ‘thing’ in this movie (from the giant scorpion to the sargasso weeds) stuffed into one shot -the cast included! And it was done as an action scene to boot! Made the flick look like the Cannon King Solomon’s Mines in terms of how much action and excitement was squeezed in there!

    On a fun side note, I met Suzanna Liegh at a film show years ago. She was a delight. (And I discovered Brits really do say “Smashing!” whenever they like something.)
