Saw it, loved it. I should explain something: I grew up watching Monster Movies, in the theaters or on the tube.
There was "Creature double feature" on saturday afternoons, and really cool, cheesy monster movies were staples of late night UHF television many years ago. So naturally, I enjoyed cloverfield.
I've been meaning to check out "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra".
It's in my Netflix que.
Have any of you ever seen the original, 1957 version of "Not of This Earth"? (Not the 80's remake with Traci Lords. Nice eye candy, but no.) It's ultra-cheesy black and white, but has a really cool monster in the last few minutes. It's this little, ghoulish looking thing that sort of resembles an umbrella. It drops over the head of its victim, closes up, and eats brains. At least, I think that's what it does. You're never really sure.
An on-line outfit called Scifistation
has a lot of these movies, in "regionless" DVD packages. The quality is not great, but acceptable. It's doubtful that anyone will ever do a really top-quality restoration on most of these movies.
How about "Attack of The Mushroom People"?
