The Beast Of Yucca Flats (1961)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Coffee-obsessed B-movie auteur Coleman Francis was unleashed upon an unsuspecting world with this standard "man becomes radioactive monster" movie rendered hilariously surreal entertainment by the soundtrack having been lost in production and replaced by nonsensical rambling narration from a drunk-sounding Francis.
Commies made him an atomic mutant!
