Manna From Heaven For Fans of this type of Drive-In Movie stinker
1 May 2011 | by (North Hollyweird) – See all my reviews

As a certified Ed Wood fan, I had been meaning for some time to track down the works of Mr. Phil Tucker.

But, they had eluded me, except for his disasterpiece, his masturwork, his Citizen Kane, his Plan Nine From Outer Space.

That would be the immor(t)al Robot Monster, which I have seen on DVD, and even had the good fortune to see on the big screen, in its super rare 3-D version no less! Jeekers!

So, finally, Netflix allowed me to stream one of his other epics, THE CAPE CANAVERAL MONSTERS. I have to say, it was almost worth the wait. Fans of the celluloid leavings of Ed Wood, Jerry Warren and Richard Cunha will be right at home here.

This is a pure gold-plated turd, full of the hi-jinx beloved by aficionados of low-budget 50's sci-fi swill. Aliens, mad scientist, stupid gadgets, cheap-arse monsters, yes, fans, they are all here, and they are all awesome. Perfect mindless viewing for a boring Saturday afternoon.

Not sure if this presentation is available on DVD, but if it is not, then it really should be. Somebody get right on that, will ya?
