Mega-Meta 4 Category 7 Recap: Stupidest-Looking Monster

Some of my favorite Smithee categories are the self-explanatory ones. Worst Acting, Worst Special Effects, and the subject of this write-up: Worst Choice At The Snack Table Stupidest-Looking Monster!

The Stupidest-Looking Monster award is awarded to the stupidest-looking monster. Sometimes these monstrosities are due to the misuse of modern technology, but often enough they're larger cousins to the world-renowned Rubber Squeaky Bad On A String!

Your nominees are:

S 16:

Godmonster of Indian Flats (1973) (Smithee Link Here)

The Godmonster of Indian Flats is a mutant sheep. You can say that again! The Godmonster of Indian Flats is a mutant sheep. A human-sized bipedal mutant sheep with a mincing gait. Mmm, sheep with mince.

S 17:

The Revenge of Dr. X (1970) (Smithee Link Here)

At the pulpy, pulsating heart of Dr. X's revenge is the plant-monster that we affectionately term "The Rock'em Sock'em Rutabaga."

S 18:

The Killer Shrews (1959) (Smithee Link Here)

According to the plot, the killer shrews are shrews that have grown to dog size and become vicious. According to the evidence of our eyes, the killer shrews are dogs in "shrew" costume -- and not a particularly good shrew costume.

S 19:

Evil Brain from Outer Space (1964) (Smithee Link Here)

Of all the foes that Starman fought in all the Starman films (and this is the Japanese Starman, not the Jeff Bridges Starman), the cat-brain-eye-creature shown here matches up the best against the whole package.

S 20:

Vampire Wars: Battle for the Universe (2005) (Smithee Link Here)

It's a chest-bursting vampire hand-puppet. The Nosferati. The most impressive thing about it? The cast keeps a straight face when they interrogate it.
