I HAVE SEEN REPTILICUS --
The big thing about this one -- (Have you seen it, pops?) -- was that for the most part, all you ever see is a large tail being dragged around corners.
When you finally do see the monster, he has this floppy tongue hanging out of his mouth, sort of like a plush toy --
Definitely in a class by itself -- The only Danish giant monster flick ever made -- Really quite awful, in a sincere, low-budget kind of way --
The Giant Claw, with its cross-eyed gooney-bird buzzard doll, is definitely in the running, though -- Oh, please do see that one!!

Nope--never even heard of it. and just for the record, I was never a PR fan either. I'm just so sick of seeing them stick around that I'm about to go nuts.


I think another addition to terrible monster movies should be any one of them that has a "giant" human fighting a monster. to me that kinda blows the whole point.

Or there was Godzilla vs. Megalon, with a man-sized robot programming himself to grow really big.

Oh, and the mere mention of Reptilicus broke down the mental barrier I placed around "Tivoli Nights" and allowed the song to flood back into my consciousness. The pain, the pain.

Well, I gotta agree with pops.  To my mind a movie is a failure if it completely misses the boat in execution.  
A movie like Boeast o' Yucca Flats hits right on, it was made on a shoestring, looks like it was made with much LESS than a shoestring, and no one is fooled about it being a better movie then it is.   Yet its still enjoyable, if only by Mike and the bots, or sickos like us.
The American Godzilla was supposed to be the end-all-be-all of monster movies.  It spent scads of cash, marketed itself to the hilt, and was not even good nor entertaining.  THAT makes it a failure in my book.  

Maybe there is a expense/enjoyability ratio in movies that could be applie dto assess "badness"?  Ideas?

All that said, Eegah is a pretty p**s-poor monster movie.  And I personally loathe Gorgo (the British/Danish Godzilla)

Since this has turned into a "best of the worst" type of posting, here's my list (in no particular order) of some of the most enjoyably horrible monster movies I have seen:

The Killer Shrews
The Giant Gila Monster
Robot Monster
Godzilla vs. (fill in the blank)
Godzilla vs. Bambi
Horrors of Spider Island
The Giant Claw
The Deadly Mantis
Dinosaurus!


I'm not including the monster movies that I consider to be actually good movies, like 20 Million Miles to Earth or King Kong.

Pops:  You've got to see Reptilicus -- Get ye to a video store!!
Also, I loved Gorgo as a kid, and still do -- Jurassic Park 2 lifted the whole Momma comin' after baby premise of Gorgo.  It still holds up, to me, but then I like Vermin's band too --

Meh--Jurrassic Park was good but the only thing that saved part 2 was Ian Malcom--he's hilarious! My favorite line from part 2 was "Oh sure at first it's ooh and ahh---but then it's running and screaming and terror" Jurrassic Park 3 was the worst though--Grant was boring the second time around and the plot was EXTREMELY hard to believe. I had a problem with it getting good reviews as well.

What p**sed me off about people giving it such rave reveiws was this, these same people(or most of them) trashed Red Dawn as unrealistic because it was about a group of kids who arm themselves against a Russian attack on America and become a freedom force, yet they praise JP 3 which features a kid surviving for nearly a month on a third Dinosaur Island with Dinosaurs that have been genectically altered to have near human intelligence despite the fact he knows NOTHING about dinosaurs and the fact that a bunch of dinosaur experts barely lasted one day in the first two movies. Now THAT is unrealistic.

Oh--and America's comic adaptions of Godzillia are worse than any movie they will ever make of the big green guy---I found this out only yesterday. In his comics he fought things like giant croutons.

I'm serious.

    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.
