Hello everyone.

I'm a freelance comedy writer and I'm trying to pitch a joke article to Cracked about just plain pathetic movie monsters.

Now I love B movies and classic horror/scifi/fan fiction but I'm no expert. I seek to write a humorous but informed article instead of a second rate uninformed opinion piece that won't do the topic justice. So after checking a hand full of sites I found this site and forum and after checking out some of the posts I decided that this was the best place to get intelligent informed opinions.

in short I just want to know who you think are the most pathetic movie monsters, whether it's a dog with a mask on or a common tomato.

so far the ones I'm thinking of including in the article are:

the killer shrews
the giant gila monster
leeches in attack of the giant leeches
tomatoes in Attack of the killer tomatoes (it's getting remade so I want to do something on the original)
Fungus monster in Bad Channels
Hobgoblins
the woman's head in the brain that wouldn't die


Thank you for your help

Definitely "a real, live GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD" (quoting Andrew) in The Giant Claw...

Also the one in "Creature from the Haunted Sea" (1961)

And what was this movie with the alien where the actors actually had to crawl into to get eaten? Was it some kind of space slug?

Bela Lugosi wrestling with an automated rubber octopus (lacking the engine) is a classic.

hmmm, lemme see...I have to think of some movies that aren't black and white...maybe later

Are we looking for the worst implementation or the worst ideas?  "The Killer Shrews" might look funny, being dogs wearing carpet remnants, but the idea is actually pretty good.  Ditto on "The Giant Leeches."

There is actually another movie about giant rats called "Deadly Eyes" and that had dachshunds wearing rat disguises.  The killer shrews look funny, but the rat/dachshunds are just amazingly silly.

Frank's suggestion of The Creeping Terror is excellent.

Ditto on The Giant Claw and "Creature from the Haunted Sea."

"Bride of the Monster" is the film with the awful rubber octopus.

I would add Ro-Man from Robot Monster.

We're looking thin on newer films, so how about the melted ET from Star Crystal

Disembodied head?  Go for "They Saved Hitler's Brain."  It's a much worse head.  It barely moves.  I think it might grimace once.

The giant mutant cat that lives inside another cat from Uninvited seems like it might be mandatory.

Same with the VW turned into a giant spider in "Giant Spider Invasion."

The fearsome fanged slugs in Slugs.

And who could forget the puppet Satan and his killer rubber starfish demons from Rock n' Roll Nightmare.

Leave it to Andrew -- He got all the classic ones --
I would only note, on the "pathetic" side of things, that Hitler's head doesmove and speak while it's being transported in the exploding car.(They Saved You Know Who's Brain)  The actor had to stick his head up through the seat cushion into a bell-jar type affair.  He screams "Mach Schnell!!  Mach Schnell!", which, coincidentally, is all the German we knew as kids when we were playing Army.

thank you very much I've got some not-so-serious viewing to do.

if my story article gets run I'll definitely post it up here (and if they let me, plug this site usually they're pretty cool about that stuff.)

I know that the movie was tongue-n-cheek but the movie The Stuff is a good one. Think of The Blob then think of yogurt... combine.

The Triffids from the 62 version of Day of the Triffids were not really the height of 60's sci fi.

And then there is Night of the Lepus. Giant, killer, rabbits.

If you want truly bad monsters, you cannot go wrong with Larry Buchanan films.

Howzabout the paper mache turkey head worn in BLOOD FREAK?
Then there is also....
.The giant moldy carpet monster (supposed to be a giant mutant sheep) in GOD MONSTER from INDIAN FLATS.
.The silly plastic dinosaur in ONE MILLION AC/DC?....

The guy in a bugsuit, that was supposed to be a forty-foot dinosaur in "It's Alive" has to be the dumbest monster I've ever seen. Probably the only highlight of an otherwise unwatchable snooze-fest, I'd recommend finding a clip off the web, rather than watching the movie.

The collection of plastic toy dinosaurs from "Range Rider & The Calgary Kid" were more impressive.

Curse Of The Swamp Creature had a painfully bad creature.

I nominate "The Gargon", the silhouette of a lobster from "Teenagers From Outer Space" (O.K film that it is)

    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.
