Monsters step out of a 1951 horror movie and terrorize a town
26 October 2003 | by (Cape Girardeau, MO) – See all my reviews

In 1951 filmmaker Dexter Brisbain writes and directs a monster movie called, "Monsters on the Loose." The film was made on a new type of film called Radium Acetate. A group of monsters somehow get out of the film during an electrical storm and terrorize the city. Brisbain is accused of staging the event and is told to never show the film again. Time goes by and the film is in a trunk in the basement only to be found by the son of the now elderly Brisbain's nurse. Recognizing the title as a long-lost film the son decides to show it to a friend on Halloween. As the film is being shown there is an electrical storm and suddenly the sheriff, Manikin (a living manikin), Verman (a wererat who transforms whenever he smells garbage), and a spirit who can take over anyone's body are loosed on the city. Most of the movie has the boy, Tim, and his girlfriend, Tina, chasing around trying to stop the monsters in their attempt to take over the town with the help of the film's sheriff.

The movie is a nice spoof of classic movie genera. Is it derivative? Yes. Is it predictable? Yes. Is it fun? Yes! So sit down and turn your mind off for a dose of good, clean, fun. We know that, eventually, the monsters will be brought back under control and be returned to the film stock from whence they came.
