Here's Your Chance to See a Movie About a Giant Gila Monster

Posted By on Mon, Jul 21, 2014 at 10:30 AM

As the trailer says, "No human mind could imagine the enormous destructive power of this maddened killing thing," the title subject of the 1959 film "The Giant Gila Monster," which you can see tonight at the Loft as part of their Mondo Mondays series. For only $3, you can see a film that makes the most of zoom lenses and a gila monster someone likely found in their yard. But, hey, it might all be worth it just to hear the music, which includes this jam by the Sneaky Petes (which is apparently just Eddie Cochran of "Summertime Blues" fame), entitled "The Gila Monster Crawl":

More info on the film is available at the Loft's website.
