Ro-Man, an alien that looks remarkably like a gorilla in a diving helmet, has destroyed all but six people on the planet Earth. He spends the entire film trying to finish off these survivors, but complications arise when he falls for the young woman in the group. Love that bubble machine! Written by

The scenes on the view screen presented by Ro-Man come from a variety of sources: among them, the shots of New York in apocalyptic ruins are matte paintings by Irving Block from Captive Women (1952) (RKO, 1952); the shots of the headquarters of the Great Guidance (a rocket ship in launching position) was originally created for Rocketship X-M (1950) (Lippert), also painted by Block.

The only people who truly think that PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE is the worst film ever made have obviously not seen THIS turkey. It makes PLAN 9 look like a Lucas/Spielberg/Cameron collaboration. From the idea of using a gorilla costume for a robot suit (I give director Phil Tucker an A for chutzpah!), to the "special effects" to the across the board bad acting, ROBOT MONSTER is just plain bad. My favorite scene is when we can see the hand holding the sparkling "orbitting space station" as it throws the exploding space ship at the camera (this is 3-D after all). > I actually got to see this on a big screen on a triple bill of this, PLAN 9 and ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES (which I think is an actual GOOD movie). Needless to say, RM was the highlight ("lowlight"?) of the evening. Tucker speaks of a film he made called SPACE JOCKEY that even HE thinks is "a piece of s--t". So far, this film seems to be lost. Has anyone seen it, and is Phil correct in his assessment?
