AGH! Monsters!

Well, well, well....will you look at that? It's time for Shocktober. Oh yeah, you  heard me right, a whole month of scary movies. One of my favorite things about scary movies are the monsters. The sillier the monster, the better!

My FAVORITE monster is the Creature in the Creature from the Black Lagoon. How can you not love a slimey monster that just wants to hang with the ladies. A scientific expedition looking for the proof of the fish missing link gets more then it bargains for when they find the real thing, not just the fossil remains. Lots of great underwater action, a guy in a rubber suit and one of the cutest bathing suits ever is all you need to know about this Universal Monster classic.

Do you like dogs wearing shredded carpets? If you do, than The Killer Shrews is the movie for you! Besides the shredded carpet dogs, James Best aka Rosco P. Coltrane of Dukes of Hazzard fame stars in this fine piece of cinema. Once again, we just can't keep our hands off mother nature and thus the killer shrew is born. How will the shrews be stopped? Who will save us? Well sillies! Rent it and find out.

 Okay, so I've noticed that in the 1940's and 1950's people really had a fear of gorillas. I don't get it? I mean, did gorillas run rampant on the streets? Did the people of that time already know that we were going to be ruled by apes a la Planet of the Apes? Anyhoo, Robot Monster has two things that our mid-century modern ancestors feared most. Robots and Gorillas. Oh yeah! I forgot about radiation, big lizards and cute girls screaming. The marrying of a diving helmet and gorilla suit? Pure genius !

These are just three bad monster movies that I highly recommend these cool Shocktober nights. If you are having a bad day, pop one of these fine *ahem* movies in your DVD player, sit back and have a good belly laugh.
