Monster A GoGo: Terrible Movies #82
Badly mic'ed official looking military types talk via walkie-talkie to a helicopter about a space capsule while someone else does voiceover narration and someone else bangs portentous chords on a piano. Not much else happens. Actors generally sit in cars or stand in fields. Everyone is poorly blocked, some very confusing bird-related foley work happens, and dialogue that sounds as if it was recorded in a bucket consists of gems like, "We don't know if the radiation repellent worked.", "A series of Ifs.", and "With TWO anchovy olives.". Without warning, unconvincing Twisting occurs around the 15 minute mark, and I can only assume that's the GoGo portion of the film because this Twisting is done by very few monsters. After the Twisting, someone gets to first base while necking in a car, and then someone ends up covered in a sheet in the dark by their Galaxie 500. Features several LOL-inducing face-palming moments. It just goes to show you that you don't need $200 million to make a terrible movie. I watched it on Hulu, and you can watch it below. If you watch it don't say you weren't warned.
