A horror movie about a monster that has been created from a garbage dump in Milpitas, a town near San Francisco. This monster attacks a party at the local high school. Before he can seriously threaten the town, however, he comes into fatal contact with the town's TV transformer tower. Written by
A laudable amateur effort from high school students and faculty
Pollution yields a towering beast which proceeds to de-populate the community of Milpitas, California.
The simple general consensus is understandable...this is a badly shot, rough-hewn monster movie. Now...consider that it was made as a high school project involving complete amateurs in every aspect of its penniless construction, and the results begin to look pretty darned good.
There's a world of movies made by "professional" low-budget filmmakers that are far less watchable than this. Overall, the quotidian mainstream movie viewer will probably have a tough time with THE MILPITAS MONSTER, but it would seem highly unlikely for these individuals to ever merge with it in the first place. For those among us with an interest in the more novel curiosities of cinema, this should manage to entertain, and occasionally even impress, when allowed to be recognized and appreciated on its own realistic terms.
A+ for effort.
