Some movies kind of haunt you I guess. Others just linger on in your memory. Some just unexpectedly end up being something you enjoyed more than you expected to and they seem to stay with you kind of I guess..kind of hard to explain it or put it.  But ya for some reason, that movie sticks out in my memory...sometimes I'm not even sure quite why...

Here's one of mine:

Even though I despise foreign films made about my country's history, the Richard Attenborough barf fest Cry Freedom has stayed with me since 1987: some of it was filmed in my home town of Gweru, Zimbabwe (as Attenborough was too scared to film in South Africa) and it is not such a bad film: both the performances of Denzel Washington and Kevin Kline are standouts.

Surprisingly, The Astounding She-Monster. It tells an interesting story, the special effects are, admittedly, awful, yet something about its location, the isolated setting, lingers in my mind.

I rented GRAVE ENCOUNTERS with zero expectations and it has become one of my favorite films.

I love that movie. The drunken moll-and Keene Duncan's lousy attitude with her- reminded me of KEY LARGO.

I'm glad you posted this, Trevor. I liked this movie quite a bit, but have been hesitant to say so since I know you don't like foreign films made about South African issues.

I was planning to write a warts-and-all review of this film for our site but since you liked it, I won't be writing it.

Yes  Cheers. The Astounding She-Monster is sort of a low grade sci-fi riff on Key Largo with some Edgar Ulmer vibes that make it special. Its atmosphere, the isolated setting, is redolent of an early Perry Mason episode; ya' know, the kind in which he went on a literal "fishing expedition".

That Robert Clarke, an RKO conract player of a slightly earlier vintage than Burr, also appeared on PM may be a factor in the movie having that Perry-ish ambiance.

Kenne Duncan just about steals the movie in the acting department. He just plain looks evil and scary  Buggedout: he looks dissipated, the way Chaney, Jr. did in his later years; and he bears an uncanny resemblance to notorious bank robber Willie Sutton, also later on, not so much at the time the film was made.

For lovers of dirt cheap rustic Fifties sci-fi this one is about as good as it gets. The only film in the same genre that can give it a run for its money is maybe the 1956 The Werewolf, which is more straightforward and not so far out.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
