Evil Brain From Outer Space (1965)

After a weekend full of action and zombie-like creatures inside the Resident Evil series, I decided to head a different direction last night as I was working in the man cave. My selection for the evening is from the Pure Terror Collection, in the 1965 made for television entry Evil Brain from Outer Space.  

Plot/ A monstrous evil brain from outer space leads his minions on a crusade to conquer the universe, and unleashes hideous monsters on Earth that spread deadly diseases. Superhero Starman must rescue Earth from the menace of the evil brain while battling armies of monsters the brain sends against him.

When I put this on last night, I had no idea what to expect and I honestly did not expect what I found on the screen. Technically, this film suffers tremendously, featuring overacting, ridiculous fight scenes, bad audio dubbing with some of the corniest dialogue and some of the most hilarious costuming ever (even from the early Sci-Fi era). Yet, that truly just added something to the overall fun and entertaining side of the movie. Plus, there were actually some very strange monsters and creatures that fit in perfectly.  Do not take this the wrong way, while entertaining and laughable, this is a BAD movie. However, if you are a fan of the great Godzilla films of the past, and loved the foreign Sci-Fi flicks with terrible dubbing at the classic Saturday afternoon spook shows, this film is worth watching, (but please, watch it with an open mind).
