I tell ya, those films are actually pretty darn good.  The four I've seen on that list are all interesting in some way, but yes, being what they are, certainly pretty riffable.

I just love that genre... I wish there was a network devoted to it.

Alright, so they just finished up with I Married A Monster From Outer Space... good stuff, totally classic. I was surprised to find my girlfriend already watching it when i came home from work! Even though i own most of these on VHS or DVD, i think this may turn into an all-nighter. Well, at least until bedtime that is. But i have a few of the later ones set to record on DVR.

That documentary looks almost interesting. Although, i have to admit that i'm completely sick of hearing the whole "Cold-War/Communist Scare = 50s Sci-Fi" theory that is always repeated ad hominem in those documentaries.

Anyway, the next movie is about to begin...

Thank you for the tip.

It's a shame that the SyFy channel doesn't play these instead of, say, "Tremors 4: It's Pretty Lame" or whatever "original" movie they make.

I have to say, it was a bit odd last night going from Elmer Gantry to I Married a Monster from Outer Space:)

I don't know... i kind of like the crappy movies they show on the Sci-Fi channel. It's like the modern day version of Ed Wood-style science fiction. I absolutely prefer the old black and white films of the 50s and 60s, that's totally my thing. But Sc-Fi certainly has a bunch of horrible films that are in a category all their own, and that's fun too!

I gotta agree with you, the SciFi originals are deliciously terrible movies... I do my best riffing with them! I saw Frankenfish a couple weeks ago on "Fish" day, but I can't remember which one it was.... was it the one in Louisiana on the river? Or was it the one on the island with the Capt. Ahab guy on his tour boat?
