Monster of the Day #309

It’s the official “I’m back from T-Fest” post. There will be a report on the Fest, but first I have to finish my roundtable review before the month ends. In the meanwhile, check out Freeman’s report.

    “Hi, I’m Terry the T-Rex. Don’t mind my plastic looking skin and teeth. I’m really quite terrifying!”

  • At last a film which my 6 year old grandson has the budget and technical prowess to pull off!

  • Mr. Rational

    Oh, don’t insult your grandson, Sandy. He could do so much better than this. Heck, I think even I could do better than this.

    This moment was the highlight of the whole festival!

    I love you you love me were a happy family with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you. . .

    Mighty Gorga-the worst ever!

  • The Rev.

    As hilarious as that minute of footage with the T-Rex is, it doesn’t really justify slogging through the rest of the movie.

    Ken: I’m aiming to have my write-up done this weekend. If you want to hold on to it and post it along with yours when it gets done, that’s fine.

    What The Mighty Gorga makes me wonder is if those plastic dinosaur heads, with the working jaws on the end of a stick with a trigger, were on the market prior to 1969, or if they were inspired by this movie’s token dinosaur. I had one as a kid that I got at the zoo, and this thing in action sure looks like the one I had! Same color in some shots!

    Rather impressive cast assembled for such a tepid jungle picture, but can you imagine how obscure it would be if it DIDN’T have the gorilla? One element I do love is the final music cue for The End. It sounds like it was recorded for some very important movie. For about five seconds there, the movie is really impressive.

    Ken, wasn’t there something you were planning to post before you left for (clap clap clap clap) Texas?

    Was this bad rear-projection or bad forced perspective? I can’t tell from the photo.

  • roger h

    looks like a double exposure to me

  • Amazingly realistic. But, then again, I’m still recovering from my birthday party…

  • Flangepart

    Ken, you must be proud of yourself, sitting through such drek.
    Makes you the Navy S.E.A.L. of the bad movie Brigade.
