Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Beast of Yucca Flats, The (1961)

...aka: Atomic Monster
...aka: Violent Sun, The

Directed by:
Coleman Francis

Tor Johnson plays a Russian atomic scientist (!) who’s chased right into a nuclear blast by Communist agents. As a result, he turns into a club-carrying killer mutant. This mostly silent film is linked together with pondering, senseless narration. The run time is only 54 minutes and it's usually on list's of the worst movies ever made. No arguments here.
