Beware of.....Mant!

Matinee (1993) by Joe Dante, is a marvelous yet neglected comedy film tribute to 1950s science fiction/horror. It brings together a number of elements, from 1950s science fiction to the showmanship of William Castle to the cultural tensions and fears of doomsday associated with the Cuban Missile Crisis. A facet of Matinee is the film Mant! that plays in the theater during the course of the movie. That great film within a film is copied below for all those that love 1950s science fiction. For those interested in adding Matinee to their collection, it can be purchased on DVD. Spine Tingler!: The William Castle Story, is also highly recommended.
