A great Prune Danish "Cheesy" movie

We were stationed in Pensacola, Florida at Saufley field 1962-64. I was in 4th grade at the time and my parents told us they had a surprise for us. We were going to see a horror movie. I was very happy. Horror movies were my favorite. The folks use to take us to see a lot of movies at the base. I grew up seeing everything from "Lawrence of Arabia" to "From Russia With Love". It set the movie enjoyment tone for me that would carry on all throughout my life. As a kid at the time, I thought this horror movie was wonderful! It had the main element I liked: the army fighting a giant monster. This was right up my alley. As I saw the movie years later in college, I realized what a tacky treasure classic grade "B" movie it was. A "must see" with all your buddies after a day of partying! I think the American general had his face frozen in that one expression for the entire movie so he wouldn't start laughing.

The best of the worst!

Without a doubt the best BAD movie ever made. From beginning to end, "Reptilicus" has it all:

1) Weird Location: Copenhagen 2) Bad Dubbing: Phonetic English over Danish 3) Cheesiest Monster: Rubber snake hand puppet thingy 4) Worst acting: Carl Ottosen as Gen. Mark Grayson, plus the whole cast! 5) Worst stock footage: Obviously unrelated to the movie 6) Worst special effects: Acid vomit + cut-out farmer entree' 7) Worst crowd control: Copenhagenagers running amok!

I know there are CHEAPER monster flicks out there, but "Reptilicus" gets the honorary "OsKar" for totally bad in all major respects. I dare you to watch it and not laugh... a lot.

Bad Movie Monster Classic

This is the story of what happens when a part of a long dead monster is dug up and allowed to grow to Godzilla proportions before it destroys much of Copenhagen.

This film exists in two versions the American release version and the version that was released Europe. The films while telling essentially the same story are cut very differently. The European version runs over 10 minutes longer, which doesn't include alternate versions of scenes. Most tellingly missing from the American version is a pointless song by the handyman to a bunch of kids in a park, beach romance scenes between two of the characters and the the legendary flying scenes, which consist of the monster model being flown on strings at night (their removal was probably a good idea). The American version also is missing the spitting of the animated green goo.

I just finished watching the two versions of the film back to back and find that the non-English version is a better film, there are more shots of the monster and of destruction, and even though some look worse, its some how a more sincere, more complete film (Handyman song aside).

No its not a good film by any stretch of the imagination but it is a fun film, with a monster the likes of which we don't see any more. Its one of the dumbest, yet coolest, monsters in movie history. Yea its a badly animated puppet in fake settings, but its till a great way to enjoy a rainy Saturday afternoon.(Just skip to the monster parts)
