CREEPY CLASSICS presents...
Every weekend we're watching movies together...whether you're in Pennsylvania USA, or Sydney Australia. It's a throwback! Back to the days when you had the anticipation for waiting till the weekend to see the classic horror or science fiction film that was listed in the TV Guide. The plan is to watch a movie at 7:30PM on Saturday night in your own time zone. Or, if you can't Saturday night...anytime during the weekend. Then, we'll all get together and e-mail our thoughts on the film...a few paragraphs...or simply a sentence if you'd like. They after-viewing reviews appear first on our Creepy Classics/Monster Bash News Page. See the latest thoughts posted by viewers ther now.
Concept submitted by Mike Adams of Cartaret, New Jeresey.

Eventually the microscopic creatures combine into one giant monster. Considering the budget, it was an ambitious ending.

I have to agree that THE FLESH EATERS almost seems like a twisted version of GILLIGAN'S ISLAND. For a low budget production with some rough special effects...it really moves. Never a dull moment as the evil Martin Koslek develops his flesh-chomping creatures. Lots of continuity problems as Bob Pellegrino pointed out to me. Clothing changes within the same scene, etc. The story just gets utterly ridiculous by the last ten minutes...but, like I said...it moves, not boring. Some pretty gory scenes for 1964 too!
