It wouldn't do to have The Amazing Colossal Man, without it's sequel Revenge of the Colossal Man (1958) (aka War of the Colossal Beast). Then there's Pirahna Part Two: The Spawning (1981), or these Ray Milland gems, The Thing with Two Heads (1972), X: The Man with X-Ray Eyes(1963), and Frogs (1972). Let's see, Squirm (1976), SSSSSSS (1973), Death Race 2000 (1975), Billy Jack (1971), Bless the Beast and the Children (1971), The Beyond (1981), The Funhouse (1981), Maniac (1980), Martin (1977), Day of the Animals (1977), A Return to Salem's Lot (1987), Q (1982), C.H.U.D. (1984), The Bees (1978), Day the World Ended (1955), It Conquered the World (1956) ...

My suggestion at this point is to edit and clean-up the list to remove any of the films that ubiquitously show up on other channels. This way only films that rarely or never show up will be listed.

 

These films are on other channels all the time:

 

Howling II: Your Sister Is A Werewolf (1985)

Jaws: The Revenge (1987)

Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, The (2001)

Myra Breckinridge (1970)

Ned Kelly (1970)

Reefer Madness (1936)

Valley of the Dolls (1967)

Zardoz (1974)

Either you're psychic or I am, because I was just thinking of that. I was debating on listing it because I remember Siskel and Ebert gave it two thumbs up.

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra is supposed to be a humorous parody of all those low-budget 50's SF flicks...but it winds up being a "so bad it's good" movie in and of itself. What _is_ the point of Fay Masterson in B&W, anyway?

 

If not Dan Ayckroyd/Leonard Pinth-Garnell as host, TCM could have Joe Flaherty be Count Floyd hosting Monster Chiller Horror Theater!

Skiddo cannot be worse than "Manos": The Hands Of Fate, that cannot be possible.

This is a fun thread...

 

but I'm surprised you put The Amazing Colossal Man on it. I thought that was a great movie. "I laughed. I cried. I laughed."

 

 

It's not easy being big.

I object! On the grounds that a) these are made-for-TV kid's shows, and B) they're brilliant examples of craftsmanship that influenced movies from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Star Wars.

karlofffan,

 

Quote:

"How can we forget From Hell it Came (1957), with an evil tree stump called a Tabonga that throws people into quicksand."

 

I HAD forgotten "From Hell it Came". I read your message. I remembered "Tabonga".

 

"Tree stump God...throw people into quicksand" only hints at the goofiness of the plot. Vote for ONE movie that represents 1950's drive-in "cheese"? "From Hell It Came" gets MY vote.

That movie is unforgivable, add it. And please add Over the Edge (1979), those kids made me sick.

I thought at one time The Boogens was a good movie, but after seeing it again about two years ago, it seemed a little lame to me. Oh well!

I thought (perhaps I'm mistaken) The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) was one of the great classic Science Fiction "B" films of the 50's.

 

It's one I'd add to my collection.

I submitted, I Was a Teenage Frankenstein, because of the bad paper mache make-up job. But, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, was actually a good make-up job and not really a bad movie. Yes, it was a B movie, but I think it might be the classiest one amongst this bunch. I don't think it really belongs here.

Popeye (1980).

 

And I'd like to submit Altman's latest fiasco, A Prairie Home Companion (2006). Though I haven't seen it, I've often said that they'd get the terrorists at Gitmo to talk if they'd only played the NPR radio version of this show to them. That's the worst torture a person could inflict upon another. Judging from the trailer, maybe they should show it to them.
