Monsters Crash the Pajama Party 1965 ***1/2

Dir: David L. Hewitt
Stars: Vic McGee, Peter James Noto, James Reason

Perhaps the greatest half-hour absurdist saga of all time. It's amazing how much insanity is packed into the short running time of this oddity, which was originally presented with live actors participating so it would seem as if things were coming out of the screen at you. When watched as is, this makes it all the more surreal and disjointed. This is available from Something Weird Video, packaged with a bunch of other curiosities, including the Richard Carlson ghost noir, Tormented, of which I was very glad because my own copy of that stopped working half way through. The main feature has just about everything I look for in a b-movie, so much I'm sure I will run out of space for the labels as it only allows 200 characters, so I will have to choose the most prominent aspects.


  1. Love this flick! Got that special DVD with it and a ton of other goodies not too long ago. Menu was a tad confuseing though.

  2. Yeah, it's a beaut, and it definitely took a while to figure out the menu, I'm kinda glad to know I'm in company with that, it's not just I don't know what I'm doing...

  3. I have this DVD as well. It is a blast!
