Thinking back on this movie what I remember about the creature is that it was quite silly looking and then turned out to be a survivor of a nuclear war in a radiation suit. What I rember most clearly is that Mr. Vaughn didn't look like a teenager, was always clean and cleanly shaved and always had perfect hair.
He looked more like Napoleon Solo at a halloween party than a caveman. The same is true of all the ladies in this movie, for me this is what makes the movie so bad it's funny.

Glad that Brain wouldn't die was put up because thats the one I would vote for. I have seen Manos and Plan 9 but their not really my favorites.

THE BRAIN THAT WOULD'T DIE is also one of my favorite B-Movies. Also put up some other Ed Wood films as they deserve it.

Here, here!  Well spoken, Isaac .  . .
I would say here that the choice of this for a topic was quite good, if only because it showed up the ALARMING NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON THIS BOARD
who are yet to see some of the true classics of the genre . . .
This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as we have a chance to edumacate here, but Iwas still shocked . . .

Welcome to the board Isaac. PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE is proving to the film of the ages. You have Tor Johnson, Vampira, Criswell, and even horror great Bela Lugosi who literallly comes back from the dead to make this film.

Peter Johnson at least 5 of these films can be seen in their entirety on Youtube. They have no excuse. They must pass through the fires of truely bad(good) movies. It's an initiation process. There are different degrees that can be obtained here at badmovies.org.

Plan 9 has to be it. The question I have about it is, how did Ed Wood get that Baptist church to fund it?

If you read "Nightmare of Ecstasy", it seems to have been a combination of Wood selling the film to the Baptists as some kind of "end-time/repentance warning" movie, and promising the church elders parts in the film -- You see them as the gravediggers and at Lugosi's funeral --

How can you leave out "The Creeping Terror" ?  What could possibly be more entertaining than watching someone fall down and wait for a guy with a carpet over him try to catch up.  And then there's the "sound track".  It's hard to find production quality like that nowadays.

I'll have to go with Robot Monster, if just for the whole guy-in-a-gorilla-suit-with-a-deep-sea-diving-helmet-and-Lawrence-Welk-Bubble-Machine/Radio vibe. Also, for its connection with The Beverly Hillbillies (Ro-man also played the gorilla that appeared on several Hillbillies episodes).

Yeah, I agree.  Robot Monster is the Citizen Kane of "guy-in-a-gorilla-suit-with-a-deep-sea-diving-helmet-and-Lawrence-Welk-Bubble-Machine/Radio" movies, without a doubt.

    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.
