Lighten up, Francis.

And in regards to the movie title, sounds like an SBD...

Re: Award for the most stupidest movie title in history goes to

Maybe if this thread asked for opinions on what the stupidest movie title could be I'd understand the nomination for SSSSSSS. Why beat up on this movie title now and state it's the worst? And for the record, I really love the title and the cheesie poster art. It made me want to see the movie. There are definitely worse titles. I would say The Hunger Games is hardly interesting sounding to me (note: I said "to me") but it's hardly the worst too.

It's definitely cheesy and from what I remember the make-up effect was pretty creepy. But it's been a long time since I saw it.

I see on the poster that Zanuck/Brown were the Exec Producers. A couple years later they had a small film called "Jaws" come out

I liked this movie a lot, but the person who reccomended it to me couldn't remember the title and neither could I when I told other people about it. "It's called 'Marcy May Mary M' something," I'd say.

Re: Award for the most stupidest movie title in history goes to

Nice choice, Groucho. I have it on one of the MST3K discs and I need to watch it again.

Some fun facts about the movie via wiki:
This was not, however, the originally intended title of the film. As Steckler relates, the film was supposed to be titled The Incredibly Strange Creatures, or Why I Stopped Living and Became a Mixed-up Zombie, but was changed in response to Columbia Pictures' threat of a lawsuit over the name's similarity to Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, which was under production at the time.
The cinematography/camera operating was done by three men who would go on to become major figures in cinematography: Joseph V. Mascelli, author of The Five Cs of Cinematography; Vilmos Zsigmond (listed as William Zsigmond), who won an Academy Award for his work on Close Encounters of the Third Kind; and László Kovács (listed as Leslie Kovacs).

Titles that have nothing to do with the movie are pretty stupid too.

Zombies of the Stratosphere (1952) - there are no zombies in this film.

Re: Award for the most stupidest movie title in history goes to

How about Rat Phink a Boo Boo, which got it's name because the director was too cheap to have an erroneously made title card corrected.

Not that making the title Rat Phink and Boo Boo would have help that much...
