The worst picture ever made, even worst than the attack of the killer...


The worst picture ever made, even worst than the attack of the killer tomatoes. I enjoyed watching the movie and recommend it if there isn’t anything else on TV. If you enjoy watching a bad low budget movie from time to time give it a try. Watch it with low explications and you will probably enjoy it.

campy fun!

Exactly. It was made by students with ZERO money and they made a hell of a fun movie. If it was the worst movie ever made, I doubt it would have launched the careers of Dave Allen and Dennis Murren, as well as had Jim Danforth behind the effects, not to mention the DVD has praise from George Lucas and Ray Harryhausen in the booklet.

And if the OP actually took Attack of the Killer Tomatoes seriously, he can't be all to bright anyway,

i've seen a lot of movies in my time. i'm not sure if this is the absolute worst...
it's very, very, very bad, though...
hilariously so :-)
it's like the worst student film...made by high schoolers...in the 1950s!
but, obviously it's all in good fun. and the "cheese" factor is off the charts.

Read what I said again, I thought I was pretty kind and I even said "give it a try. Watch it with low explications and you will probably enjoy it. "

See, he was doing humor. He was hoping you'd have lower expectations of his spelling, so when you saw words spelled properly, this one word misspelled wouldn't seem so bad.

How about "Planet 9 From Outer Space"? You know, I've never looked at a shower curtain the same way after seeing one used as the 'door' to the cockpit on the plane.

I sadly don't have that in my collection, but I'm watching The Beast Of Yucca Flats in about 60 minutes when The Hideous Sun Demon is over.

Nah... not true, OP.

^^ This review nails it.

I watched it almost by accident & now it is one of my favorites. I couldn't sleep one night & ordered a movie & this was the one I chose. It is campy, and bad, but it is a lot of fun.

Anything directed by "Cash Flagg" AKA Jerry Warren. Anything starring Sharon Stone, Cher or Tom Cruise. Anything produced by Oprah. All these are much worse.

"Cash Flagg" is actually Ray Dennis Steckler, not Jerry Warren.

This is by no means the worst film ever made. If you think so rent more movies. Because, I have seen at least 200 hundred other horror films that are worse. This movie is like a precursor to The Evil Dead films. The professor unlocks the evil of an ancient book and then his old students come to visit and are plagued by the demons he unleashes. And, the ending is surprising and brutal. It is not a happy ending at all.

This movie is bad---very bad. Not "so bad it's good"--just horribly painful to warch.
