Using soundtracks and extensive footage from many old movies, this spoof/homage of 1950's science-fiction films brings back many favorite actors from these classic movies, some reprising their former roles, to help destroy a giant stop-motion monster that is threatening to destroy Los Angeles.

Stop-motion effects in "original" black-and-white version by M.D. Wolf (aka Mark Wolf) completely replaced with Godzilla-style "man in rubber monster suit" created by Mark Williams (Aliens (1986), The Fly (1986), Blue Monkey (1987)) and Ted Newsom. See more »
Col. Patrick Hendry:
Look, son, I've been fighting monsters since before you were born. It's never over 'til the final fade-out.
Col. Patrick Hendry:
You try telling some Harvard psychiatrist you used to fight monsters. I've looked at so many inkblots, my eyes cross. They've had me doing the Thorazine shuffle for three years.

You have to approach this movie with humor and nostalgia. If you look only at the technical aspect of the film, yes you will find things to complain about. The humor in it, the one liners, the cameos, the nods to the classic monster movies, that's what this film was to me. Call it "Z-grade" all you want...I thought it was a nice tribute to the genre. There is no doubt this was a low budget film. Yes the SPX can hit the cheese level as can some of the acting. I looked beyond that though and saw some writing and scenes that got me chuckling. Every new cameo from a genre star got me to smile as well. I applaud the film makers for doing what they did on a small budget and doing it with some humor as well as some respect for the classic monster movies.
