MST3K: The Giant Gila Monster
This was a much more enjoyable experience than watching the MST3K version of "The Corpse Vanishes." For one thing, this movie is so silly all by itself that it practically begs for satire. there's a cute little lizard crawling around a set and knocking over toy trains, and it's adorable, and then whenever there's supposed to be a closeup of the monster eating a person, the filmmakers use an unconvincing and hokey model of a lizard arm and foot that made me laugh. The commentary is inspired here, too, and I was giggling a lot, so I had fun with this one.
