Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books (i.e. skip meals, camped outside a bookstore, broke up with someone because they don’t like books, etc. – submitted by Aggie’s Amygdala). I'm doing something a bit different this week since I can't really come up with anything aside from stay up late. Anyway, I'm sharing some Outrageous B-Movies I've Seen On Svengoolie. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I like to tweet along with the show on MeTV. Sometimes they'll play something really awesome, but then other times you'll get something really ridiculous and the tweets really make the whole thing better. Here we go, in alphabetical order by title:
The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T (1953) - This is the only time Dr. Seuss wrote for a live action film and it is just about as deranged and nightmarish as you would expect - those finger hats are kind of weird. Actually, I'd probably be addicted to it if I were the age of the kids in the movie.
Barracuda (1978) - For a movie with this name, there aren't nearly enough barracudas...
The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962) - I can't resist this one - just one question though, how does she develop ESP? Seriously, though, there'd be no story here if Jan would have just wore her seat belt.
The Car (1977) - The titular car is possessed and runs people down - plus, it must really hate french horns and bicycles. Also James Brolin is in this and the car itself was specially built for the movie by the people behind the Batmobile.
Curucu, Beast of the Amazon (1956) - This movie is probably the most unintentionally hilarious of everything on this list - seriously the villain looks like Toucan Sam and the whole movie budget went into that one costume.
The Mole People (1956) - This is really cheesy, but it's really imaginative and should have had a bigger budget. By the way, Ward Cleaver is in it!
Motel Hell (1980) - This is more of a horror comedy and it kind of parody's 1970s slasher movies. It's about Farmer Vincent and his wife who make smoked meat snacks and their stock is the people who stay in their motel called Motel Hello (with the "o" burned out). You need to scene when they are doing the harvesting with the tractor.
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964) - This doesn't even rate as so bad it's good - more like how did this even get made. That said, you still need to see this to believe it.
Son of Godzilla (1967) - Okay, I just have to say it - the son of Godzilla looks like a cross between Baby from Dinosaurs and Thomas the Tank Engine!
Have you seen any of these movies, or have you ever watched Svengoolie? As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
