The Giant Claw (1957)
The Mark of the Claw

Nomination Year: 1995
SYNOPSIS:  A huge turkey-vulture (with the accent on "turkey") terrorizes worldwide airspace. We're supposed to believe that this bird comes from an "anti-matter" universe and has some kind of force field around it.

Smithee Award Winner! Worst Special Effect

What a Turkey!
The giant bird menaces a plane and forces its crew to bail out. Then it eats some parachuters -- that is, guys on strings in front of screens projecting an obvious puppet-bird.
