Thirteen votes! I thought I was the only one in the country who ever saw this movie!
4 June 2000 | by (Los Alamos, NM) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a drive-in in 1959. Until "Howard the Duck" I considered this the worst movie I had ever seen. This movie tried to combine all the genera in one; comedy, horror, teenage angst, and the hot rod that must have sired "My Mother, The Car." Maybe it deserves a second viewing to see if it is an accurate reflection of it's time.
