not surprised to see the recently departed b-movie great John Agar is represented by a couple posters there. I always loved "The Brain From Planet Arous" and "Tarantula".

I was looking forward to a 50ft website, just to see if the execution was as horrible as the idea. I barely had to scroll...

Yes, I was also relishing the possible challenge of a website 50 feet long. But this is just as cool.

I especially like Astro Zombies.

I hope for the sake of any real aliens that they never come to this planet, because fear and xenophobia demand that we make war with them

Sorry for the dramatics in the post above, but there's just no other way to introduce a site like this. :)
I picked up the hyped lines from a collage of gimmicks.

Does this now open up a challenge to create the worlds largest scrolled web site? Guinness comes up empty on that.

It was great to see a couple of posters from an out-of-print Roger Corman flick, "The Day the World Ended." That cinematic masterpiece gave me nightmares as an impressionable 7 year old. I'd probably laugh myself silly seeing it today.

riffola, the dramatics are what it's all about....

HTuttle, the challenge has always been there, just nobody has stepped up to the bat.

They have a lot of posters from Herschell Gordon Lewis films! I'd love to be able to buy posters right from the site, but then my house would look like Rob Zombie's.

Cool link, brotha riffola. I especially loved the poster from Robot Monster, probably the best. bad. movie. ever.
Angry men in gorilla suits and diving helmets, how can you beat it?

Erm. Okay.
For the dissapointed people who like scrolling - here's a quick kilometer for you (selflink).
Don't blame me, I'm just stealing ideas here.
