Robot Monster (1953)

Universally derided as one of the worst movies ever made, Robot Monster tells the frightening tale of earth’s invasion by “Earth Ro-Man”, a killer robot from Mars.

Unfortunately, producer/director Phil Tucker’s budget came up a little short when it was time to create the “terrifying” alien invader, so he improvised by costuming his creature in a gorilla suit and deep-sea diving helmet.

Filmed in glorious black and white, and made in 3-D, you’ve gotta see it to believe it!
