Monster of the Day #556

Really, who can blame him for being provoked by that awful mushroom song?

    “I like to watch blalalalalalalalalalala …”

    I was home alone Friday night and had episodes of MST3K I’d already seen running as background noise from Netflix. This was the first one I put on, oddly enough.
    I don’t know what it is, but those “blalalalalala” jokes they did never fail to crack me up.
    I like gila monsters, so I feel bad that their only feature film was so slow-paced and lame. And those songs! Bleh!

    They actually have the B&W and COLOUR version of this on HULU! Why both I have no idea. Who in the hell would go to the trouble to colourize a piece of Grade Z schlock like this? Was Ted Turner punishing a underling for making fun of Karl Marx?

    the speaking for the gila monster gags always has me in stitches.

    ‘Gee, I came all the way out here to help you save on your car insurance and then you distract me with bad rock ‘n roll and ram a hot rod full of explosives into me!’ Humans, bah!

    Usually it’s to secure copyright. Once a film falls into public domain, you can only copyright an identifiably discrete version of it. Colorizing the film allows for this.

    Of course, they really should have called it The Hiant Hila Monster.

    I hope Festus’s family can still make something off this film.

    “Did someone call for help? I’m a faith Healah monster. Hah, I slay me…”
