The Giant Claw (1957) still

Tonight we say, “gobble! gobble! gobble!” as we belly up to the all-you-can-eat buffet of turkey featured in 1957’s The Giant Claw.

From a reviewer on rottentomatoes.com: “This movie is amazing… It’s like like Plan Nine…only with Big Bird on PCP.” Well who can resist THAT?

The Giant Claw (1957)

In real life a huge bird would be terrifying – truly (check out this deviant art revamp of the monster in the film. Pretty cool, huh?). This film is really, really into giving you a sense of scale by comparing the monster to a battleship – like, loads of times.

Join us tonight for some fowl play! (Sorry. Truly, I am.) The movie is available on YouTube (link below – click on the YouTube icon). If you’d like to watch with us, here’s how. Queue up the movie as follows: sometime before 7 PM PST Tuesday the 26th play the first few moments of the film. The moment the film title fades into actors’ names (James Morrow and ), pause the movie. At 7 PM PST exactly, resume the film. Then follow on Twitter at @BmovieBFFs or post to/enable Notifications on the Facebook thread as we watch this chicken-hearted masterpiece.
