Best movie ever!!!
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I happen to love the Milpitas Monster! I have to say that everything that "Author: (rob@roballoo.com) from Lived in Milpitas for 25 years!" said is absolutely true. The whole town was involved in this project and to me that really adds to it. I grew up in Milpitas and I was actually there when it was made. It was the coolest. I guess you have to have lived there or near there to really appreciate it. Milpitas was a very small town back then where just about everyone knew each other.

I remember when the Milpitas Monster came out, the high school students went to all the elementary schools and junior highs (there were two then)and went to every single classrooms so us kids could personally meet the monster. It was so awesome. I remember some kids were very afraid of the monster. We had never seen anything like it before.

I think that everyone did a wonderful job with the technology that was available for that time. I encourage everyone to watch it!
