I spent some of my time preparing for Turkey Day by enjoying a couple of cinematic turkeys. Don't get me wrong, I love these films, but a man can only take so much.
THE CREEPING TERROR 1964 (MILL CREEK)....A bizarre looking monster that has always reminded me a a cross between vacuum parts and a carpet sample lands on earth and proceeds to eat almost all of Lake Tahoe.
This film is legendary for it's twisted backstory and totally off the wall presentation. The best scene in the film as far as I am concerned is where the "army" fights the monster. That has to be seen to be believed.
If ever a movie was made for turkey day, this is it.
Secondly I watched MONSTER A GO GO 1965(SYNERGY) Herschell Gordon Lewis and Bill Rebane bring us a masterpiece if well, I'm not sure.
An astronaut goes into space and comes back as an 8 foot tall monster with oatmeal on his face. He kills several people and when the military is finally closing in the film pulls a switch which is still unbelievable, even to this day.
These are two films I hold dearly so don't get me wrong, I never tear apart an old film, as everyone here knows. These two are BAD films, very BAD but enjoyable on their own level.
