The Naked Monster
AIRPLANE meets GODZILLA on an Ed Wood budget as a giant three-eyed alien lizard threatens civilization. Crusty monster fighter Kenneth Tobey (THE THING) teams with a sultry scientist (cult scream queen Brinke Stevens) to battle the dreaded Creaturesaurus Erectus. There's eye-poppingly bad special effects, sight gags, and an all-star cast of B-movie sci fi legends.

All that being said, the movie brings back to the screen many of the stars of the 50's, including some who are no longer with us, having passed away. Among those are Kenneth Tobey ("Capt. Hendry" in "The Thing", who died in 2002), Robert Cornthwaite ("Dr. Carrington" in "The Thing", who died in July of 2006), and others from that genre.
There are some gratuitous nude scenes in the movie, and in a film preview that's also on the DVD, so this film isn't really for kids.
An interesting extra choice from the menu is an interview done between a horror-movie host and Kenneth Tobey, which has his remembrances of filming some of the movies he had starred in. That was fun to watch.
Bottom line is that the 5-Star rating I gave it is for those who mainly want to revisit old memories. For anyone else, it's merely a curiosity piece.
