Demented-Movie-Trailer Tuesday

It's a beautiful day and I'm watching movie trailers on YouTube. You can too (unless you're at work--if so, wait 'til later). Why watch deliriously bad film when you could be outside working on your golf game? Because other people decided these films were a good idea and you get to marvel at those decision-making processes. And because we all could use a little vacation from reality to forget the state of the world before heavy doses of BBC-News-reporting knowledge set back in, weighing us down with man's inhumanity to man. With that in mind:

Mantango - Attack of the Mushroom People (1963) is an excellent shipwreck starvation mushroom mutation horror film from Toho Studios. Of course "excellent" is a completely subjective concept.

The Bat - I've never seen The Bat. I just like listening to Vincent Price's voice. Plus Agnes Moorehead is in it and she's tops.

Destroy All Monsters (1968) - Even if you don't like the film (and if so, what's wrong with you?), you have to admit that the title is really cool. Maybe too cool. I can imagine a couple of hipsters having the following conversation:
"So what'd you do last night?"
"Watched Destroy All Monsters."

Robot Monster (1953) - I keep embedding clips from Robot Monster but I don't know if you, mythical reader, have watched it yet. WHY NOT? It's fantastically bad! Seriously--the worst film ever made. The worst of the worst. Don't you want to see rock-bottom film making? Don't you want to LIVE?

Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959) - I can't think of anything much more frightening than giant leeches gratifying their distorted desires. Can YOU?

The Beach Girls and The Monster (1965) - Hey, let's chill and head down to the beach for some laughin', singin', surfin' and SINNIN'. The glamorous Watusi Dancing Girls will be there dancin' to music by Frank Sinatra, Jr. and... AUUUUUGUUGHGHGH!
