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 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 or viewed online through Amazon Instant Video via the TheoFantastique Store. Spine Tingler!: The William Castle Story, is also highly recommended.
