4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars for laughs 13 Jan 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Robot Monster" is a laugh a minute and easily worth the modest price of this DVD. A no frills presentation (sadly not in 3D!), but the film itself is worthy of your attention without fanfare - as long as you are aware that you are in for one of the silliest sci-fi stories ever commited to film. I won't go into details of the plot, as many internet sources have detailed this film's many, many hilarious failings - most notably "Jabootu's Bad Movie Reviews" website, who's article on this film had me in stitches.
If you can spare the 60 or 70 minutes time to sit through this humble offering, you'll soon be enjoying incredible scenes of genuine no-budget 1950's sci-fi nonsense, all lovingly played 100% straight by the earnest cast, not to mention the titular "monster" itself which is a man in a gorilla suit wearing a diving helmet on his head. Enjoy the pretentious script, backtrack to see the cracking bloopers a second time, there's loads to enjoy. What a shame this film was intended by it's creator to be a masterpiece or futuristic suspense, the poor man apparently never lived down the humiliation.
All we need now is an official DVD release of "The Giant Claw", and both the daftest monsters in movie history will be preserved for another generation. How about it?

3.0 out of 5 stars Dream a little dream of me 25 April 2010
Looks like the family is having a picnic in the most unlikely spot, the ravine of Bronson Canyon, California (just rocks, dirt, and more rocks.) It is nap time. When Johnny wakes up he finds that the earth has been destroyed. The advanced force invader is a creature that looks like an ape in a diving helmet. He must be related to Laurence Welk because there are bubbles everywhere. Soon it is clear that the invader (Ro-man) has the hots for Alice (Claudia Barrett). Hope she likes hairy, bald men. Talk about ménage à Trios. Roy said to Alice "You're so bossy that you have to be milked before you come home at night" so they get married.

Will humans survive?
Does Ro-Man get to see Alice strapless? (Will we?)
Will Johnny ever play house with Carla?
Be prepared for the shocking conclusion of "The Robot Monster."

5.0 out of 5 stars robot monster rules 28 May 2004
robot monster is a classic, and is probably no 2 on my top ten favourite films.Second only of course the sublime plan 9 from outer space.It features a host of shocking monsters the like of which will never be repeated. The star of our show, Ro Man is a diving helmet with tv arial attached, with the hideous body of a gorrila suit. Will Ro Man give in to his unnatual love for the "Human Female they call Alice", or will he obey his order to destroy the earth. Can't describe how much fun this is. Buy it or suffer the wrath of Ro Man
