Classics of Crap Volume 42- Robot Monster

Wow, this movie is crap. I mean, scraping the bottom of the barrel crap. But holy cow, is it ever funny. Robot Monster is one of the those legendary bad movies that everyone seems to have heard of, but no one seems to have ever seen. Made in 1953, for $20,000 (In 3-D, no less!) this movie is dumb moviemaking at its finest. The premise, as it were, is that Earth as we know it is destroyed. Boom. Done. There are only 8 survivors left, hiding in a cave. It is up to the evil Ro-Man to destroy the last surviving members of the human race by hand. Did I mention that Ro-Man, the evil conquering alien is a gorilla wearing a diving helmet? Well, he is. And he brought with him evil bubble making machines of DOOM! Oh man. This movie is just plain awful, but like Plan 9 from Outer Space, it's one of the most remembered crap movies from the 1950's.
