Commentary: Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)

We do something a little different in this episode for the 1957 film, Attack of the Crab Monsters. It’s our first commentary! We learn that we should always be afraid and to never assume someone, or something, is pregnant. We also ask if a crab can communicate through metal under water and are giant crabs the Martian Manhunter in disguise?

This episode Joshua and Taylor rank their top 9 movies on both importance of message and how well it was delivered. Have they only watched 9 films and thus some of these probably don’t deserve to be here? Of course. But if we waited for more films some of these would never be talked about again.

Is there a monster from the ocean floor? Maybe. Is a dad dead? Yes. We discuss that, and much more in this episode for the 1954 film Monster from the Ocean Floor. We also discuss jokes that should have been edited out, the similarities of Carbon and Silicon, how making something more complex can take away its innocence, and introduce a new game “How long did nothing happen?”.
