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.

No animals were harmed during the filming of this movie. We held a cat up at one point, but it was with great affection. A couple stock shots showed iguanas who got their tails pulled, but the lizards and the tail-pullers are long gone. We'd never do such a thing. Ick. See more »
I really did enjoy this film. Laughed out loud and saw the joy and love that went into the compilation and final cut. The parade of science fiction memories and stars from the 50s and 60s is almost breathtaking. The script is wry and spot on the various targets writer Ted Newsom sets up and knocks down as this tale of lunacy unfolds. You'll laugh but I assure you, you will NOT cry. A beautiful scientist, a handsome hero, bumbling assistants, various squashed red shirts, a brain-dead cop and a grizzled and sad monster killer PLUS three gorillas (Count 'Em, THREE!) combine to give the true fan a couple of hours of hoots and howls. EVERYbody got in on this one, including my personal favorite brilliant scientist: Robert Cornthwaite. Rock on Newsom. It's a beauty! Bring it out on DVD! -Jessie Lilley: http://www.mondocult.com
