Something Weird This Way Comes... is a movie podcast about campy and exploitation films from the 30's - 70's. Join our intrepid hosts Roo and Moe as they discuss the Sheepy Shocker -  

Godmonster of Indian Flats - 

Oh, lordy lord, what does one make of this? Once upon a time, director FREDRIC HOBBS made a sex film called Roseland that turned out to be one of the weirdest, wackiest, oddballest sex films ever made. This time he's made a monster movie called Godmonster of Indian Flats that, no surprise, is one of the weirdest, wackiest, oddballest monster movies ever made.

Gaseous vapors from an ancient mine cause the birth of a huge, half-formed, squealing embryo which is taken to the lab of the local mad doctor where it grows into an 8 foot mutant sheep. Yes, that's right, an 8 foot mutant sheep. (Hey! Our first Sheepy Shocker!)

Meanwhile, the great STUART LANCASTER (Starlet, Mantis in Lace) is the corrupt mayor of an historical wild west tourist town (filmed in Virginia City, Nevada, a U.S. historical monument!) who thwarts the efforts of a black man trying to buy up land for a large corporation by attempting to lynch him!

Plans go awry, however, when the giant, fur-covered Lamb from Hell busts out of the doctor's lab and starts waddling across the countryside. Spewing an orange phosphorous gas, the semi-prehistoric "Godmonster" dances with a deranged hippie chick, lumbers into a children's picnic, blows up a gas station, and is eventually lassoed by cowboys!

But when Lancaster puts "the damaged mongoloid beast" on display as another tourist attraction -- "Feast your eyes on the 8th Wonder of the World!" -- the appalled townspeople freak, riot, and throw the monster in the town dump as a crazed Lancaster shrieks: "Make them pay! Make them all pay! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!"

Yow. This outrageous obscurity received a limited theatrical release in 1973 which must have given brain seizures to those lucky enough to see it unfold on the big screen.

In addition to Roseland, director Hobbs (who also wrote, produced, and takes credit for "monster design") also made the equally bizarre Alabama's Ghost. As Michael Weldon has already asked, "Who is Hobbs and how could he have escaped attention for so long?!?" There's also a funeral for a non-dead dog, and a brief cameo by ERICA GAVIN (Vixen) in a Reno casino. Regardless of what you think of it, watch Godmonster of Indian Flats and you'll at least be able to say, "No, I haven't seen that before." Amen!

Come listen to Moe and Roo discuss how much we absolutely LOVE it! If you like camp and silly movies join us on Facebook, you won't regret it! An Extra special thanks to Something Weird Video for supplying movies for episodes and for generally being an amazing company and an inspiration to my movie viewing habits - Moe
