Boring. Lame references to Superman are prevalant throughout the film. I feel it's safe to say that you can skip this one and still go on with your life.

I kenw the family that lived in a house where some of this movie was filmed. It's in Sherman Oaks CA. For those of you who not familar with LA, Sherman Oaks is directly over the hill from Beverly Hills, lower rent but still pretty nice. I assume most of the movie is filmed in the San Fernando Valley.

As for the Family that owned the house, let's just say watching the movie was a more pleasant experence than knowing them.

I disagree. LOL all along this movie. My girlfriends just told me it was the worst she ever been after "rabidd granies" by troma too.

Do you remember when the monster carry the hero but can not cross the door because he is in the bad "direction" ?

Sorry for my so bad english.

The script of the movie is awful. The ending ends with the monster dying in the street with the Superman(Clark) in its
hands.WOW what a ending. The US Army had to leave just because it was too powerful and couldn't stop it. WOW, our tax dollars was wasted.HAH

To those who say this movie stunk: did you not look at the box before renting it?  It's extremely forthcoming about it's nature as a parody of a genre-- I grant, the genre is 50's-esque mystery-creature-with-but-a-single-weakness movies, but man, is it funny AND apt.  The Professor is an archtype established in the original "Thing from Another World", and I'd swear the Padre spent his time off camera studying the same character in "War of the Worlds", so similar was his body language.
  This was my first exposure to Troma product, and I've a soft spot in my head... dah, heart for it.  I guess you have to have a certain sense of whimsey, and a bit of backing in black'n'white monstrosity to really enjoy it.

Very under-rated spoof. Most of the reasons listed here for why it's bad are why it's good. Because it was all intentional. It's a parody of all those daft 50s B-Movies with the stereotype characters. I thought the monster on the whole was well realised.

I think it's a little un-fair to comment on Boom-mike coming into shot or Nipples on screen as when I saw this I cropped it to 1.66:1 so didn't see any of that, as you wouldn't if you saw this at the cinema.

Great Fun.

I remember seeing this as a kid  TeddyR

The Human Blood keeps them alive, FOREVER
