Robot Monster (1953) Ro-Man, an alien that looks remarkably like a gorilla in a diving helmet, has destroyed all but six people on the planet Earth. He spends the entire film trying to finish off these survivors, but complications arise when he falls for the young woman in the group. Love that bubble machine!

Movie Quote(s):
  • Carla: Is Alice going on a date with Ro-Man?
  • Johnny: [to Ro-Man] You look like a pooped out pinwheel.
  • Ro-Man: I cannot - yet I must. How do you calculate that? At what point on the graph do "must" and "cannot" meet? Yet I must - but I cannot!
  • Great One: Earth Ro-Man, you violate the laws of plans. To think for yourself is to be like the hu-man. Ro-Man: Yes! To be like the hu-man! To laugh! Feel! Want! Why are these things not in the plan? Great One: You are an extension of the Ro-Man, and a Ro-Man you will remain. Now, I set you into motion. One: destroy the girl. Two: destroy the family. Fail, and I will destroy you!
  • Great One: Have you made the correction? Ro-Man: I need guidance, Great One. For the first time in my life, I am not sure. Great One: You sound like a hu-man, not a Ro-Man. Can you not verify a fact? Ro-Man: I meshed my LIP with the view-screen auditor, and picked up a count of five. Great One: Error! Error! There are eight! Ro-Man: Then the other three still elude me. Is it possible they have a counterpower?
Movie Trivia:

  • According to the Medved brothers' book "The Golden Turkey Awards", director Phil Tucker attempted suicide after the release of "Robot Monster", due to the overwhelmingly negative critical reaction it received.
  • One of the films included in "The Fifty Worst Films of All Time (and how they got that way)" by Harry Medved and Randy Lowell.
