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!
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”!

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
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 of films. Definitely helps with a couple of beers nearby to get you through the middle 45 minutes, either that or take a nap.
So with no further ado…Octaman!
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 […]
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 […]
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!
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!
Hey Shack Fans, Sean drops another tidbit from the icy East coast:
A mere 16 years after the abomination of 1998 Godzilla will again reach American shores. This time for real, it seems! The first Official Teaser Trailer has been released, and I arranged an exclusive deal with Warner Brothers for a Monster Shack Official […]
Astronaut Steve Rebar (!) ventures too close to Saturn and ends up melting, pissed off, and ready to kill! All in all, a silly 70’s monster flick that is best watched from the sofa on a rainy day and plenty of beer in the fridge.
After a series of atomic tests off the coast of Mexico (huh?!), mutant octopi begin showing up and freakin' out the local fishermen...Octaman, the grand-daddy of them all, stomps around, steals women, and makes a nuisance of himself in this obscure 1970's sci-fi flick.
Sean Ledden strikes again! 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 mean religious awakening. Watching it just might inspire something similar in you. Be warned!
I have searched for years trying to find this film to no avail, until Guts3D finally tracked down a copy for me. Filmed on a measly $40,000 budget, this beer-riddled production is beyond "Bad" or "Good", it's just freakin' weird. OK, fine: it's pretty bad too...make that REALLY bad.
Video Bite: A crazy kid kills mean kids...but there's more to Angela than first appears. Literally.
Frankenfish Giant mutant Chinese fish and noodlin'...ya'all ready for this one?
Megalodon Megaladon! A giant, crabby shark that eats CGI mini-subs for breakfast! Num!
Rattlers The Army dumps toxic waste on some rattles snakes...they get pissed off and bite a bunch of red necks. Need I say more?
Night Train to Terror An incredibly cheesy 80's flick made from bits and pieces of 3 sub-par films edited together into one sort-of movie. Although it does have some funny parts, it is a very confusing mess that's difficult to get through...but there ARE lots of monsters, so hey...you decide if you want to see it or not.
Troll Hunter Sean reviews a fun "documentary" about a secret service toll hunter. A proud Norwegian production. Huzzah!
Monster Another guest review by Sean. "Monster" is a pretty bad movie about a, er, monster. Excited yet? By sure to check out the review!
Highlander 2 Karl sacrifices a large number of brain cells by watching this horrible movie and sending in a guest review. Poor guy. I'm going to double his salary immediately!
