Well, I agree that suicide is not funny (unless you watch the original film M.A.S.H. from 1970) but I think their point was that the director was such a failure in life that he became a failure in death, or in an attempt at it anyway.

Well, 'worst' is a subjective term and there will never be 100% agreement. I too have seen Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, and it IS pretty bad, but I consider it to be more of a comedy than sci-fi. Robot Monster took itself seriously, whereas SCCTM did not. Both were awful films but did at least possess some modicum of entertainment value and that is a redeeming feature. As Alex would tell us, Manos: The Hands of Fate did not even offer that and so too is a strong contender for the title of Worst.Film.Ever.Made.

Forgot to include above as an epilog. From the IMDb:

_According to the Medved brothers' book "The Golden Turkey Awards", director Phil Tucker attempted suicide after the film was released because critical reaction was so negative. He put a gun to his head, pulled the trigger, and missed._

In the 1982 film _Poltergeist_, it is revealed that the character portrayed by JoBeth Williams is 32 years old, and she has a 16 year old daughter therein. I have personally known two people who were grandparents by age 30 so Jane Jetson will have to do better than that to impress me.

Great Heavens, Miss C., that wasn't even one of the scarier episodes. I was 11 when I saw The Zanti Misfits episode, and it was terrifying but not so much that I ran away from home. But I still think It Crawled Out of the Woodwork was the scariest of the bunch. That I recall anyway.

Sorry to hear of your childhood trauma but I knew there had to be some reason you took up blogging.

I'm old enough to have watched these as a child and now the grandkids are getting introduced to what they would never otherwise know about. More coming!

Back in 2004 I was in Seoul's airport and it was like being in another world. Spotlessly clean, and free carts to tote your luggage, plus polite people. This, as opposed to Houston Intercontinental Airport (I refuse to call it Bush), which is filthy and charges you for everything except breathing and they're probably working on that.

I visited the Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, TX this week and samples of the Japanese war propaganda found therein aren't all that different from what we see here. BTW, this is a world-class museum since Admiral Chester Nimitz, Commander of the Pacific Theater after Pearl Harbor, was born there. Highly recommended for the war buff and/or historian.

This was from back when one could trust the content of newspapers and before they had comics and advertisements. We're talking about a really OLD newspaper here.
