    Who else has had the privilege of seeing the Giant Claw?

    Let's raise some awareness for this classic work of genius. Who else among me has seen this monster movie? If you haven't and are in the mood to turn off your brain, watch the entire thing on YouTube.

    I don't believe I have seen this movie but it looks familiar. Thank you for the link to youtube -- I will absolutely watch it now.  This looks like one of those B-rated cheesy, creature-double-feature movies I loved watching back in the 80s.  I can't wait to see it now.

      If you're looking for B-rated cheesy, this is right up your alley.

    Yes, I have seen this movie.  I saw it the first time when I was young.  I really though a lot of it then.  It had a good deal of action for its time.  In many movies of the time the monster was in an isolated area dealing with a few people and was hidden most of the time.  In The Giant Claw the monster had a good deal of screen time. 

    Looking back at it now, yes production values were low and the monster is really tacky looking.  It's one of many movies that made the 50s such a great era for bad science fiction movies.  These movies have entertained audiences on weekend afternoons and nights for decades :-)
