Monster A Go Go (1965)

(aka: Terror At Halfday)



Reviews and Comments

This "movie" is bafflingly inept. Don't be fooled by the title: there's barely a monster in it, and there's definitely a dearth of "go." It's all talk, talk, talk, despite that apparently the budget was too slim to allow for working microphones, and in between are endless shots of mundane mechanical trivialities. The technical highlights of the movie are when the camera is aimed right. The end, when it comes, is an unexpected act of mercy. Unexpected, because there is no climax -- in fact, there is no real story or character arc of any kind. You're better off staring at a wall for 70 minutes. Even the most garish of wallpaper is bound to be an improvement.
