The Giant Gila Monster
A classic from the golden drive-in era, The Giant Gila Monster showcases hammy dialogue, snappy songs, and, of course, “special” effects. After a couple of teenagers go missing in a small Texas town, everyone assumes they’ve run off to the big city. But, when their bodies are found in a nearby creek, the sheriff (Fred Graham) is puzzled as to what could have killed them. Chase Winstead (Don Sullivan), the leader of a local hot rod group, agrees to help the sheriff, and together they discover evidence of a giant lizard roaming the desert. Soon the lizard is terrorizing the town, and only Chase can stop it before it’s too late.
The Killer Shrews
1959’s The Killer Shrews is an exercise in terror… very small terror! Ray Kellogg’s Mad Scientist drama is The Island Of Dr. Moreau meets Gulliver’s Travels when a deranged genius creates a race of half-sized humans. Unfortunately, the experiment unleashes a plague of man-eating shrews on the island. For anyone who ever thought possums are kind of terrifying, check out The Killer Shrews for one of the weirdest, campiest films ever released.
