3.4?! what is wrong with you people?


what's not to like? it's a solid B-picture with a thought provoking story that inst an inch less relevant today. an above average cinematography, Peter Graves, funny dialogue and add libing. Granted the lead actor isn't all that great but who gives a *beep*.

8/10 in my book

The MST3K version is 8-10 the movie by itself is a 6-10.... Better than the grade but not great ...

I'm often shocked – SHOCKED – by the low ratings for films I enjoy, and this is no exception. This film is a bit patchy at times, but the story was compelling and the imagery genuinely creepy. It's a strong 7/10 in my book.

It's a good concept that's poorly executed, though I have to admit it is much better than most of the movies MST3K usually mocks. I gave it a 4/10.

I loved it when it was in heavy rotation on HBO in the early 80s. yes, a solid b movie more worthy of a 7. I don't remember much except for the sound of a stryker bone saw- now i need to see it again!

May one ask, in the most friendly way, why would anyone care about IMDB ratings?

People seem obsessed with them.

This was the best movie I've ever seen appear on MST3K. It was obviously made on an ultra-low budget but I'd give it a 6 out of 10 for its interesting concept and good story. The ending carried a lot of power as well. The Phantom Planet and This Island Earth (from MST3K The Movie) are probably the next-best movies to appear on the show - they'd probably deserve a 5 out of 10. Of course numbers and ratings don't really matter - what does is that The Clonus Horror stands holds up pretty well on its own.

I gave it an 8 out of 10. Very enjoyable little B flick with a clever and compelling story.
