Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet (1965)
Voyage to a Prehistoric Planet
Nomination Year: 2003
SYNOPSIS: Ugh. In the vein of Twelve to the Moon and its ilk, we have a pre-1969 film about a rocketship to Venus. It's got all the requisite '50s/'60s sci-fi standbys: antique cutting-edge technology, wooden acting, and moronic astronauts meeting idiotic monsters and robots. Although there are hints of an alien civilization on Venus, this group of dumb-astronauts never manages to encounter any, though they hear some singing. Big deal.
- Stupidest-Looking Monster
The Flying Reptile
A masterfully dumb pterodactyl on strings. This might get my non-vote.
- Worst Acting
The Men are on Venus, Marsha's on Mars
The beehive woman (Faith Domergue as "Marsha") manages never to show any emotion and always delivers her lines in a monotone, even during a crisis. Almost every scene she's in would be a decent Worst Acting nomination.
