Cosmic Monsters 1958 2 out of 10
The tagline for this movie in trailer reads " Every Second your pulse pounds they grow foot by incredible foot!" What a laugh my pulse didn't pound at all during this boring monster movie. I watched this flick on TCM with an introduction by Dennis Miller which was better than the movie itself.
A Scientist is working on some magnetic experiments.
The government is interested in the military use of the experiments and there is a guy from outer space that has come to put a stop to it. The movie is basically just a bunch of science talk and not much actually happening. It is like a really bad episode of Star Trek where they spend the entire episode talking about how to solve a problem. The experiments cause a vagrant to become a killer and insects to start growing. The movie takes over an hour to get to the giant insects and when we get to them it is basically just close-ups of actual insects mixed with shots of soldiers firing into the forest. The insects are placed in front of pictures of the forest to make it seem like they are in the same movie.
The best thing about this monster movie is the poster.
Watch the trailer and skip the film.
