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

Today I may win, or I may go home by a road I do not understand, but Tamriel will shine again, and my blade shall be glazed with the blood of the zealots who worship the Nine with their false hero Pelinal Whitestrake. A god does not bleed, but a man does, and Pelinal is only a man.

The Atomic Submarine that was definitely another 50's era stinker. I know, i have it on DVD  BounceGiggle

    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.
