The Ship of
Monsters
(1960, Mexico)

original title
La nave de los monstruos

Directed by
Rogelio A González

"Venus Needs Men!" in this Mexican melting pot of sci-fi, western, musical, comedy, and horror! Two voluptuous Venusians, including Lerena Velazquez (Samson [El Santo] vs. the Vampire Women, Wrestling Women vs. the Aztec Mummy, Doctor of Doom), go on a mission to find men elsewhere in the galaxy, and so far they've got a robot, a talking skeleton, a Martian brainiac, a long-armed spider-thing, and a big, dumb cyclops. Forced to land on Earth, they get set their sights on singing cowboy and bullshit artist Lalo "Piporro" González (Little Love of My Life). Tables turn, the monsters get loose, someone comes out the casket, Piporro falls off his horse and brings his spunky little brother along for the ride while pandemonium ensues!

(2008, USA)

Written and Directed by

With a dead friend who comes back a soul-sucking, zombie-creating psychopath, who needs enemies! A magic spell book, ninja powers, and non-stop pop culture quips, however, will be essential to surviving these undead hordes.
