I've seen 7 of these...but I've seen The Giant Gila Monster a number of times. In fact,Alan owns at least two copies of it. TeddyR

I've seen 14 of these as well but like with the 60s, I own several more on DVD so I'll eventually see most of these no doubt.

And why isnt PLAN 9 on the list? Or MESA OF LOST WOMEN?

The cut off line was 800 IMDb votes. Unfortunately Mesa has only 765 IMDb votes. Plan 9 scores an amazing 3.8/10 rating at IMDb.  For these polls I only used movies with an IMDb rating between 1/10 - 2.9/10.
I reckon thats good to know.
Hmm...why does this just make me wanna turn into a terrorist and blow up the Internet?  Question

I've only seen The Violent Years which to me has the most groan inducing dialogue I've ever encountered. In other words, typical Ed Wood effort. I wanna see all the rest though. Maybe you guys could recommend a Mill Creek pack containing those other ones perhaps?

My HORROR CLASSICS set has a lot of the movies on this poll.  Funnily enough it also has NOSFERATU, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and (one of the many edits of) METROPOLIS.

I've seen:
The Unearthly
Robot Monster
The Giant Gila Monster
The Robot vs. The Aztec Mummy
Santa Claus
War Of The Colossal Beast
The She Creature
The Thing That Couldn't Die
Night Of The Blood Beast

Another good entry into this list would have been "First Man Into Space" and another good one would be "Invisible Invaders."  And I would probably put up for "X The Unknown" and the true badness of "The Killer Shrews."
Good thread, keep it going!  Cheers

Seen all 'cept GUNSLINGER!!!  Thumbup

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

14.  A lot of these made MST3K episodes and I own several of them on various Mill Creek sets.

I didn't think GIANT GILA MONSTER was that bad.   ROBOT VS THE AZTEC MUMMY was the worst.
Yup...MST3K for me!

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
