Movie Reviews

5 Stars only for die-hard fans of Satirical Spoofs
John G in NC | Weaverville, NC United States | 08/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a difficult movie to rate...if you are old enough to have been a fan of many of the old Sci-Fi and Horror movies of the 1950's and are able to spot references to those old films, then you can get some good chuckles from the dialogues and scenes in "The Naked Monster". It was released decades ago with the title of "Attack of the B-Movie Monster" to a very limited run on VHS, and now is available as "The Naked Monster" on DVD, distributed by Anthem Pictures. Just keep in mind that the movie is definitely a low-budget production,shot almost as though it was an amateur effort. You're not going to find this movie anywhere near the caliber of other spoofs, such as "Airplane".
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."
The Airplane of 1950's sci-fi films
Allen Blank | College Point, NY United States | 05/12/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you like the old 1950's sci-fi monster invasion films you'll enjoy this affectionate spoof. What I like most is that they got one of my favorite actors from that genre Kenneth Toby to recreate his character from the Thing a few other films to fight the invading monster. Also some wonderful old character actors appear in small roles through the film, like John (Trantula) Agar, Gloria (I Married a Monster From Outer Space) Talbolt, Les (War Of The Worlds) Tremayne, Robert (The Adventures Of Superman) Shayne, and Toby's co-star of The Thing, Robert Corthwite. It does get very silly, and the modern actors aren't very good, but for a fan of these films it's a must."
I was a teenage SciFi fan

"This is a loving look at the Scifi films of the 50's that I and millions of other SciFi Kids grew up watching on saturday mornings at the local theater. Unbelievable monsters terrify the world and we buy it hook, line and sinker. Ted Newsome does a great job of honoring a number of actors who shared the lives of all who followed the Scifi genre. Buy this DVD Now!!! If you love Scifi, you'll love it."
