Okay boys and girls, it's time to check out this batch of Weird-Ass Monsters from the Fifties! Sure, there are more but these here are great examples of low budget foul balls... Enjoy!

Here's Richard Carlson's relative from THE MAZE in 1953, I remember seeing this one around 1960 on TV and couldn't believe what I was seeing. A very strange movie directed by William Cameron (INVADERS FROM MARS) Menzies.

Also from 1953 is the insane ROBOT MONSTER, played by George (MESA OF LOST WOMEN) Barrows. Literally a hack job of monster creation!

This Mexican movie, THE ROBOT vs. THE AZTEC MUMMY from 1958, reuses this robot from THE SHIP OF MONSTERS but it has a human inside it! That's one awkward, goofy looking creation.

The shaggy BEAST FROM HAUNTED CAVE from 1959 is one whacked out monster. When you watch the climax where Michael Forrest fights the thing, it's hard to tell what in the Hell's going on!

THE MAN AND THE MONSTER from 1959 was another wild Mexican horror movie. But, the clown nose makes him look like we're watching a freakin' comedy!!

Gene Corman's NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST from 1958 has one of the most confusing looking monsters... Ever!! You're just never sure what you're looking at!.. Nice package!

ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES from 1959 has big rubber monsters designed and built by the professional scuba divers playing the creatures!

Eegah!! and I saw this one at the theater when it came out. That's one of the goofiest looking monsters of all time, the MST gang had some great lines when they cut this one to shreds!

This is my pick for the worst, most embarrassing excuse for monsters, that's right, THE BRAIN EATERS from 1958! Seriously, is that supposed to be anywhere near scaryville?!

Then, from 1959, we gots THE WASP WOMAN! I mean, they couldn't even get the mouth straight, that's an obvious wig, that eyeball, just horrible! Well, that's it, but, tune in tomorrow for another special post from Eegah!!

Sadly I have a fondness for five of these. I'm surprised Tabonga isnton the list with every one of Paul Blaisdell's creations.

Hi Randall, I love them too, but, this is a lesser than great design list, Blaisdell's stuff is iconic. Thanks for checking in, more lists to come.

I'd like to know what five or which five Randall, just so we can know how depraved you truly are!?

Wasp Woman
Blood Beast
Giant Leeches
Terror from the Year 5000
but most of all Beast from the Haunted Cave

Personally can't disagree with you there Randall, just so long as Brain Eaters wasn't on the list, then I won't worry about you!

As a great fan of Bruno-as-director, I love BRAIN EATERS! A very strange, atmospheric little arty sci-fi cheapie! One of the films that freaked me out as a kiddo.
