That gives you an idea of the kind of movie "Monster a Go-Go" is -- it's one of those pretentiously bad sci-fi movies that doesn't make any sense and is full of disastrous plot holes. The worst part of all: the ending... which doesn't really exist because the filmmakers didn't bother to really create one. Spoilers below.
A space capsule has crash-landed on the Earth, but the pilot is apparently nowhere to be seen. After his widow is told about this (and his stepson.... is NOT), they find a helicoptor pilot horribly burned to death (not shown). Then a couple making out in their car is assaulted by a horrible monster... wait, it's not a horrible monster, it's basically Lurch with a bad case of herpes.
So basically the astronaut has been turned into a radioactive mutant creature that goes on murderous rampages whenever he doesn't have his radiation "antidote"... which also causes him to become MORE radioactive. So now the vaguely-defined Good Guys must stop him before he kills more... or maybe they won't.
You know, I just realized that I don't even know what the movie title means. And that is just one of the many thought-provoking questions this movie inspires: What does "Monster A Go Go" mean?! Why isn't there a monster? Why are there giant silvery legs dancing at the beginning and end? Why is the ending so abysmally brain-meltingly stupid?
I'd comment on the acting in this movie, but honestly it's difficult to single out one boring, bland, petrified actor from the herd as being worse or better than the others.Read more ›
Just in Time for Halloween, on DVD Oct. 19th
It's so Bad, it's Good!
NEW YORK -- Oct. 1, 2010 -- For Immediate Release -- In celebration of the film's 45th anniversary, a special DVD collector's edition of the iconic cult favorite Monster A-Go Go is being released just in time for Halloween, Oct. 19, from Synergy Entertainment.
Originally released in 1965, it was billed as "The picture that could set our space program back at least 50 years." Voted "The Worst Movie Ever" by Mystery Science Theater 3000 (and just about everyone else), it's so bad it's good!
Directed by Bill Rebane (who also brought you 1975's The Giant Spider Invasion) and Herschell Gordon Lewis (known for his exploitation films and often referred to as the "Godfather of Gore"), Monster A-Go Go was initially released in 1965.
Originally titled Terror at Halfway, the film stars June Travis (the final appearance of the '30s siren film star, who worked with such stars as Bette Davis, Natalie Wood, Ronald Reagan, Dick Powell, Joan Blondell, Lucille Ball and James Cagney), Peter Thompson (who worked with Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Mitchum, Spencer Tracy, Barbara Stanwyck, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner, Tony Curtis, Dean Martin, Janet Leigh, Van Johnson, James Mason, Ray Milland, Bud Abbott, Lou Costello and other iconic screen stars, before becoming a recognized character actor in '50s TV westerns) and Phil Morton (one of just two acting jobs before embarking on a production career that included several years at Saturday Night Live).Read more ›
