The Monolith Monsters

0 Love It
The original 'rocky horror': a Jack Arnold-originated, quite effective Universal sci-fi paranoia yarn featuring the alien-induced metamorphosis of men to stone, and a subsequent stampede of towering crystal structures across small-town America. Grant Williams (The Incredible Shrinking Man) is again dwarfed by his adversaries, though he plays the only possible hero: a geologist.

Skyguy

I give this movie some respect for trying something different, and really alien. Instead of some standard monster that is either a man in a suit or a giant version of some earth creature, the heroes are faced with stopping an alien phenomenon with very little to go on. I rather enjoyed it. The acting is actually decent, and dialogue is not as bad as usual in these films. A solid effort to make a film that stands out from the usual formula.
