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
You live in a quaint, boring town until one day when your town is suddenly not so boring! Does your town have its very own monster? Well, Milpitas does! The first hour of movie is, quite simply, buildup to the grand finale and revelation of the Monster himself. When the city stops taking care of its environment, the Milpitas Monster rises out of the garbage and murk and beings its regime of terror!
Not really; the monster is pretty impressive for the mid-seventies, but it's nothing George Lucas couldn't have done better on a limited budget.
If you actually live in Milpitas, then yes, the movie is a bomb, but it's also a legend. Most city residents were around at the time of the filming and/or grew up with the movie in their home. At the annual Art & Wine Festival in Milpitas, the Milpitas Monster is a frequent visitor. But if you live in the area, I highly recommend checking the library and getting the video and seeing for yourself just what is up with the Milpitas Monster. It's not a tale that's likely to be forgotten!
