Plot Outline:

Sort of a precursor to the Incredible Hulk. It's about a Russian scientist who is being pursued by agents. He stumbles upon a nuclear test site in the desert, is exposed to a massive dose of radiation, when a bomb explodes. His body undergoes major changes, and he turns into a rampaging monster. -- MaceeRae

It's less than an hour long but my god does it drag on. It's so boring that I fell asleep the first time I watched it and had to re-watch it the next night. The narration is like Rod Serling telling us about an upcoming episode of The Twilight Zone except it goes on throughout the entire film and this movie isn't interesting enough to be an episode of The Twilight Zone.

Well, first off I should say that I almost hesitate to give it a 1 out of 10 rating, considering I had so much fun watching the film for the first time. I know for a fact that I will watch it again somewhere down the road....but the keyword is that I 'almost' hesitate. It should be noted that although I happen to be a HUGE fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000, I have yet to see the episode (I'm going to watch it very soon) that features this film, so this review is entirely from watching the movie by itself.

The first thing I think someone has to look for when calling a movie, "one of the worst films ever made" is that it doesn't really resemble a movie, and trust me "The Beast of Yucca Flats" does NOT resemble film-making. It honestly feels like some strange dream/nightmare....
