Description by OLDIES.com:

Ro-Man, a sex-starved robot monster (dressed in a gorilla suit and diving helmet) has destroyed all of humanity with the exception of a small band of survivors. It's up to these last brave souls to re-populate the human race and to destroy the mighty Ro-Man and his commander, The Great Guidance.

If Ed Wood's Plan Nine from Outer Space speaks to you, Phil Tucker's Golden Turkey Award-winning film will scream. Scored by legendary Academy Award winning composer Elmer Bernstein (maybe his finest score other than Cat-Women of the Moon) and photographed on-location at scenic Bronson Canyon, Robot Monster leaves its residue in the Hollywood Hall of Fame. In exciting 2-Dimensions. No special glasses needed!

Product Description:

Following a devastating nuclear war, a gorilla wearing a dime store diving helmet arrives to wipe out the few surviving humans. The petulant primate communicates with its home planet by talking to a bubble blowing machine. One of the world's worst movies.

Rating 4.5 BEWARE OF INTENSE HORROR!! Movie Lover: from Oklahoma -- March, 20, 2009

So frightening is this movie...I only watch it under controlled circumstances. It is, truly, the absolute PINNACLE of George Nader's vast cinematic repertoire! A breakthrough! NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED!!!


Rating 5.0 It's So Baaaaaaaaaaaaaad It's Good! Movie Lover: from Teaneck, NJ US -- January, 4, 2006

Just like the review title says - it's so baaaaaaaaaaaad that it's good! Lots of laughs! Anyone who takes this movie seriously must be already committed, let alone on LSD or some kind of psychotic medication. An alien who has the body of a gorilla, wearing a diving helmet with TV Rabbit ears antennae, hides out in a cave where he communicates with his leader via a radio that blows bubbles, while there are only a few humans left on earth where dinosaurs (probably some left over iguanas bought at a nearby petshop magnified to make them "dangerous") battle each other to death, and this "alien" calls himself ROMAN, falls in love, of course, with the only good looking (and only) woman left on Earth - well, what are you supposed to think?

What a party flick! Go see it and find out what the most terrible sci-fi movie ever made was!


Rating 5.0 Great 50's No Budget Cheesefest!!! Movie Lover: from parsons, KS US -- December, 2, 2005

Robot Monster is hilarious! It's one of those god-awful flicks that just gets funnier and funnier upon repeat viewing.

Ro-Man has been dispatched to wipe out life on earth because man has become too intelligent. Extermination becomes difficult however, when the "space monster" falls in love with Alice, one of the few survivers of the ro-man holocaust.

This film is brilliant in it's complete ineptitude. Pop some corn, invite some friends over and enjoy this schlock fest TODAY!


Rating 5.0 A Defining Cinematic Disaster Movie Lover: from Trumbull, CT -- September, 22, 2005

You MUST see this movie to believe it! "Robot Monster" is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, THE worst film ever made. Do you need evidence? Here's a sampling: a bubble machine, a gorilla in a diver's helmet (helmet also appears in "Phantom From Space" but worn backwards), two bratty kids that can't act, George Nader in a ripped T-shirt, endless location shots around Bryce Canyon, an actor with a thick German accent who is almost unintelligible, Claudia Barrett (hubba-hubba!), Stuka dive bombers, deplorable and/or hilarious "special" effects, and more stock footage than Ed Wood Jr. ever dreamed of! Director Phil Tucker makes the aforementioned Mr. Wood look like John Frankenheimer! This movie is must have addition to any video collection! Thank you, oldies.com!
