Yes, the Monster Shack is still here…

Sorry for the long delay between reviews. Crazy times in real-life, ups and downs, but I have a movie in sight for review and it’s going to be a doozy! :)

thanks for everybody’s patience

New Review: Killdozer (1974)

Killdozer (1974)

Here’s a classic, campy made-for-TV flick from the glorious 70’s: Killdozer. 6 construction workers are trapped on an island along with a possessed bulldozer.
Ahhhh, they just don’t make them like they used to.

Busy, busy, busy

Just wanted to let my legion of fans out there, all 4 or 5 of you, that I’m still here and the Monster Shack is still alive and well. I’ve been really busy this summer with…well…I’ll spare you the details, but it’s leaving very little time for reviewing movies, unfortunately. I’m hoping things loosen up a bit in not too long and I’ll get something posted up here before too long!



Homage to “Things” by the Landlines

Got dropped a line from a band called “The Landlines” out of Hudson, NY…and oh, what a small world we all live in. It turns out that they’re big fans of…what for it…Things! And I thought I was the only one!

We’ll they’ve put together an homage to the along with one of their songs which I thought was really cool. So, thanks for dropping me a line and Long live “Things”!

New Review: Pulgasari (1985)


Kaiju madness returns to The Monster Shack as Guest Foreign Correspondent Sean Ledden reports from Brooklyn, where the strangely sympathetic progeny of a creepy Asian dictator gets a public showing….

Thanks to Sean for taking another one for the Monster Shack team!

A Better Tomorrow reviews “Jupiter Ascending”

Be sure to pop over to Sean’s blog and read his not-so-objective review of “Jupiter Ascending”…The next Hollywood smash “hit” to the theaters. I haven’t personally seen it yet, because I’m an old grouch that waits for everything to come to Netflix…so until then I’ll just have to trust him

Jupiter Ascending


New Review: Octaman (1971)


After a long winter hibernation, the Monster Shack staff are back to work and producing high-quality reviews! Spirits are high! Huzzah!

Octaman is a dreary tale of a half-man, half—–yeah, you guessed it. A great suit almost saves the movie, but it’s still a long haul if you’re not used to these kinds […]

Red Alert! Red Alert!

Sharknado 2 is available on NetFlix!

What Were They Thinking?…Killdozer (1974)

I’m trying to fill in the gaps between the longer reviews with little tidbits of funny stuff I find on YouTube. Now, I’m not big fan of simply posting links, and not everybody wants to sit and watch an entire YouTube video, BUT, it’s better than nothing and I promise to only link to videos […]

New Review: Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe

Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe (1990)

Abraxas, an aging, 10,000 year old Cyborg cop from the planet Sadacious battles it out with his renegade partner, Secundus, who is out to steal the Anti-Life Equation from the Comater’s brain.

Yes, you heard that right.

There was never an official trailer for the movie, but I […]

New Review: Phantom from Space

Phanthom from Space (1953)

A tedious story of an invisible alien visitor. Where is he from? What does he want? We’ll never know, but by the end of the movie you probably won’t care either.

Enjoy! Ha ha, well, “enjoy” in the Monster Shack sort of way…

New Review: The Sacrifice

The Sacrifice (1986)

Sean strikes again with another great review, what would we do without him?

The Monster Shack puts on its best soiled T-shirt and goes to film school! There it encounters a beloved classic of high-brow European gloom. It’s a deeply felt, and deeply terrible look at one man’s psychological breakdown, I […]

Sean gets cranky and rips into the new Battlestar Galactica

Sean has had enough of the new Battlestar and artfully deconstructs it on his Better Tomorrow blog.

Pop on over and check it out it. I sure as heck never knew there was so much going on between the lines…

BTW: When I was a kid, I always wanted the Cylons to win. […]

Godzilla 2014 Sequel?

Let’s not get TOO excited, but it looks like we could be in for a buch more monster beat downs in the near future:

Godzilla sequel in the making.

Thanks to Sean for the tip, our ever diligent Godzilla afficianado!

New Review: Machine Head

Machine Head (2000)

Meet nerdy high-school science geek Max. He’s found a way to resurrect the dead using a home computer and a lawn mower engine. Boy, what could possibly go wrong with that?…

Oh and here’s the trailer…thank me later.


New Review: Godzilla

Godzilla (1998)

The year: 1998. The event: a big budget Hollywood version of “Godzilla.” The result: a movie that will live in infamy! Were Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich trying to avenge Pearl Harbor by making this fiasco, or did they have darker, more sinister motives? Read the review and find out!

Thanks Sean […]

New Review: The X from Outer Space

The X from Outer Space (1967)

Sean Ledden steps up to the plate and delivers a great review of The X from Outer Space, a tale of Space Age optimism permeated by rocket ships, alcohol, repressed jealousy, and a Giant Space-Chicken of Mass Destruction!



Godzilla Trailer Review

Thanks Sean for a cool write up of what I’m totally hoping is going to be a great movie. (Yeah, I wrote “totally”, I can’t believe it…that shows how giddy I am)

Godzilla Trailer Review

Rock-n-Roll Nightmare…full movie on YouTube

Yes! One of the greatest, cheesiest monster movies of all time is now on YouTube if you want to watch it…and why in the world wouldn’t you!

You can read my humble review of it first, if you want to.

NOTE: The title in the movie is “The Edge of Hell”, but don’t worry, […]
