Zontar: The Thing from Venus: Terrible Movie #41

People in lab coats flip switches and twist knobs in a lame attempt to look scientific. An inflatable "UFO" dangles from a string in "space". Zontar miraculously lands his "satellite" in a cave, but you don't get to see that happen. There's stock footage of people working on a construction site of some sort, and trains coming and going, and people screaming and running, but you're never really sure why. Some guy in a suit talks to equipment stashed in a closet, and you're supposed to believe he's communicating with Zontar, but I don't think he knows how to work that equipment he built very well. Suddenly, people and generals are attacked by a lobster with wings dangling from a string, but it isn't very convincing. Then no one can start their cars or run their faucet, and it's all just awful. If you liked Curse Of The Swamp Creature (and Lord help you if you did), this was directed by the same guy. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
