About Phil Tucker, after his disastrous suicide attempt, he made another legendary bad sci-fi movie called THE CAPE CANAVERAL MONSTERS, after which he was relegated to making nudie cuties.

Aliens creating zombies also appeared in the late 50s film, THE INVISIBLE INVADERS, which some have cited as a precursor to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.

In 2010, there were actually two separate attempts to remake Ed Wood’s magnum opus, each film using one of the film’s titles (PLAN 9… and GRAVE ROBBERS…). I saw trailers for both of them on Youtube, but I don’t know what became of the projects.

Oh, and the question Cory asked in this episode is suspiciously similar to the one he asked in episode 214.

Well of course Goldberg won. Santa Clause kicks ass!

Anyway, on the topic of so-bad-they're-good films, there's another I have seen that I feel is worth mentioning. When it comes to rock/mountain climbing films, there are several sites with a top 10 list for greatest of all time. Since there aren't very many films in that genre that do that sport justice, most of the films on that list are made with some smart-ass remarks for them. Cliffhanger is given a "meh" response. Vertical Limit is usually on their because serious rock climbers laugh their asses off watching that movie because of how inaccurate and ridiculous it is. K2 tends to be the best one when taking things seriously.

But then there's 1 film that tends to consistently show up at the top of most of these lists. Take it to the Limit. Now, I watched this film thinking it was going to be awesome. And it was. Here's some highlights:

*The shitty acting.
*The attempted slapping at faces where the slaps barely land or barely touch.
*The camera set sideways along a slab of rock to create the illusion that their climbing as opposed to crawling (but the sideways clouds in the distance didn't get the memo)
*The rubber snake to the face.
*The bear that shows up for the fuck of it and adds nothing to the story.
*A master retired rock climber (there's always one in these types of films) who reminds me of Lou Ferrigno and made me want to make Hulk jokes each time he showed up or talked

*And most important of all...

...the theme music. Behold the lyrics to this song that should've rocked the world with its lyrics:

"Take it to the limit limit
That's how I like to do it do it
Take it to the limit limit
I'll run ya through it through it
Take it to the limit limit
That's how I like to kick it kick it
Take it to the limit limit
You just can't stop it"

This movie should seriously be a contender for greatest so-bad-they're-good films ever, outside of the rock-climbing community.
