Turn Up the Evil!

As an adult, I can see the badness of this film that was way above my head when I saw it as a child. It's ambitiously bad.

The entire premise is ridiculous, since it rests upon the assumption that global temperatures could rise to over 130 degrees F for weeks and there would still be anyone left alive. No, by the time the Seaview launched its missile to end the threat, there would be no one left.

Forget the abominably slow pacing. Forget the questionable struggles of deciding whether to follow a commander who may be losing his mind. Forget the debate over destiny and self-determination. None of that matters. Based on the premise, the world died before the crew of the Seaview even knew what was happening.

I may need to write a full review of this at some point.

Also...Seaview is diving at a 45degree angle, torps hit the 'hillside', and the guys in the galley are sitting upright? They ain't using their hands to push themselves upright against gravity? I think not!

Just reading the title my first thought was "this might be something Doug McClure would star in" TeddyR.
Watching the trailer it seems kinda bad, but totally watchable with either alcohol or a nice rifftrack...probably both.

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA is a "classic," emphasis on "sick".   It starred WALTER PIDGEON and JOAN FONTAINE... lots of others.  Lookingup IRWIN ALLEN produced it which led to the successful TV series.  It is silly and actually BORING.

    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.
