Editorial Reviews

Two films so utterly insane, strait jackets should be required! First, see what happens when a film started by the director of "The Giant Spider Invasion" is finished by Herschell Gordon Lewis, the man who made "Two Thousand Maniacs." Yup, it's "Monster-a-Go-Go" (1965, 69 min.), a screwy sci-fi obscurity in which an astronaut goes up but a ten-foot, crusty-faced creature comes back to stalk sexy sunbathers, strangle scientists, attack twist-party teens, and spew radiation that leaves his victims "shriveled up like a dried prune." It'll dig through your brain like a cinematic lobotomy! Then strap on the seatbelts for the most maddening, jaw-dropping, mind-bending piece of celluloid lunacy ever to play American theaters. It's "Psyched by the 4-D Witch" (1972, 81 min.), in which innocent little Cindy becomes possessed by the sex-crazed spirit of a Salem witch while her brother becomes "The King of Sex Vampires." A crackpot oddity told almost entirely in LSD-style psychedelic effects, this was advertised as "A Psychic Freakout from the Underground." Warning: repeated viewings may cause chromosome damage and flashbacks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute insanity! February 17, 2003
In Monster-A-Go-Go a space capsule returns to earth, crashing off-course. When it is located, the pilot is missing. Meanwhile a giant with bad skin is slowly shambling towards a city and everyone who comes near him drops dead from radiation poisoning. Could the giant really be the astronaut? And will the army remember that it has weapons such as sniper rifles capable of killing people from a distance before the film ends?
The best thing about Monster-A-Go-Go is its title, there is a gratuitous dance club scene, and the monster (played by a real giant) looks great (but you rarely get to see him). The more scientifically advanced viewer will find some amusement in the claim that the monster is becoming increasingly radioactive, causing his radius of danger to increase, when by definition any object which is radioactive becomes less dangerous over time (otherwise it cannot be giving off radiation!!) And there is a phone which does not ring until 7 minutes after it has already been answered (bad soundtrack). But mostly you get dull talky dialogue between people just standing around and detailed narration, most of it dubbed in, all of which put me to sleep more easily than accounting classes. The film is too tedious to watch without fastforwarding through most of it, even for a fan of old monster films like myself who doesn't expect to see gore, death and special fx every few seconds. This gets a very weak 2 star rating.
But you get more than your money's worth with Psyched by the 4D Witch. This is, hands down, THE most insane film ever made, and is almost beyond description (except by giving a detailed blow-by-blow account). It is sort of like a combination of one of Ed Wood's last few films (e.g. One Million AC/DC) and a REALLY intense, bad acid trip.

Good evening, and welcome to the first Saturday night devoted to watching one of the dozens of DVDs out there offering a double-feature of bad B-movies from the hey day of exploitation cinema. The first feature on this DVD is the black & white "Monster A-Go-Go" from 1965, although I think the theme song is actually entitled "Go, Monster, Go," a catchy little rocker performed by The Other Three. A space capsule comes back to Earth but lands in the woods outside of Chicago, so the police have trouble finding it. A helicopter pilot finds the smallest space capsule you have ever seen, but the astronaut is missing. Fortunately there is a scientist (you can tell because he carries a pipe) and he is able to shed light on the mystery before he goes back to the lab to figure out the dead helicopter pilot was literally "cooked to death" by radiation (this film has my type of bad science, which is so bad even I know it is bad). We then cut suddenly to teenagers dancing in a basement somewhere. This looks promising, especially when one couple go park in the guy's car. He is pawing too much so she runs away, just in time to be spared as a really tall figure comes out of the dark and kills the guy really fast (but leaves all alone the annoying dog that keeps barking and barking and barking).

The really tall figure turns out to be the missing astronaut, Frank Douglas (Henry Hite), who is now 10-feet tall and has a face that looks like a lot like oatmeal. Now the body count starts to rise. In fact, just to make sure there is no suspense the announcer tells us that the next victim is about to be killed. This is one movie where being the scientist does not mean you get to be the hero, just another corpse, because even with a Geiger counter a 10-foot tall monster can sneak up on you and kill you.

1.0 out of 5 stars In the top 10 of worst movies ever made April 22, 2008
Monster a Go-Go is quite simply, one of the worst movies ever made. It's a helluva lot of fun to watch because it's so badly made. There are more laughs here than in most so-called comedies. The level of filmmaking incompetence involved in this movie is mind boggling. How do you get such a large group of people, so untalented, together at the same time and place? It must have been a grand cosmic jest that the universe hoisted Monster a Go-Go on us. Even the title makes absolutely no sense.

The plot? Uh, ok, well there's this astronaut see, and when he comes back from space, he's a 10 foot tall, crusty-faced monster, wandering the coutryside strangling people. There are a group of NASA scientists investigating. They come to believe that the monster is actually their astronaut transformed by something he brought back from outer space. One of the scientists secretly captures the beast somehow and tries to cure him but instead the creature escapes, wreaking havoc everywhere he goes. The scientists devise some kind of plan to track him that isn't important because it's all gobbdegook. The movie ends by telling us the astronaut is found alive and well thousands of miles away. Huh?

Everything about the movie is terrible. No one can act, the direction and writing are abysmal. The print is so washed out that in one scene one man's face completely disappears. A narration was added because the dialog was impossible to hear.

But the true gem of a scene is the man sitting in his office who makes the sound of a ringing phone with his mouth, then answers it. Yes, they couldn't even afford to hook up the phone. Thank you Monster a Go-Go, for one of the best laughs I've ever had.
