''The Beast of Yucca Flats''. A film by Creator/ColemanFrancis.

Joseph Javorsky. Noted scientist. Played by Tor Johnson. Defected from Soviet Russia. Hunted by KGB. Walks onto a nuclear test site. Touch a button. Things happen. [[ILoveNuclearPower The A-bomb. A man becomes a beast.]]

No-one talks - the camera didn't have sound gear. A {{narrator}}. [[TerseTalker Unable to speak in full sentences.]] [[FauxlosophicNarration Flag on the moon. How did it get there?]]

A topless woman is strangled. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment Nothing to do with the rest of the movie]].

The beast kills a couple on vacation. Something about the wheels of progress. [[TorchesAndPitchforks People hunt the beast.]] Climb a mountain, then give up.

Boys from the city. Not yet caught up in the whirlwind of progress. A guy gets shot from a plane. Man's inhumanity to man. Beast is finally killed.

!!Tropes on the page. How did they get there?:

* AuthorAppeal:
** All three of Coleman Francis' films have featured a vigilante shooting of a character. In one of them, ''Film/TheSkydivers'', Coleman was the sniper; in another, ''Film/RedZoneCuba'', it was Coleman who got sniped.
** Why exactly does the film have that weird unrelated prologue? Well, Francis just happened to [[AllMenArePerverts like nudie shots a great deal]], so he included one on that justification alone.
* BeigeProse: The narration is this, as it consists mainly of sentence fragments and vague descriptions. Most infamously "Flag on the moon, how did it get there"
* ContemplateOurNavels: ''Flag on the moon. How did it get there''? Though, in ''this'' case, the Fauxlosophic Narration has some meaning: a top secret Russian moon landing of course! No, really; that's the secret with evidence being smuggled in the briefcase at the beginning if you pay attention.
* DullSurprise: Several people are strangled over the course of the movie. None of them try to scream or fight back, instead they seem to just give up and accept death within the first second.
* DyingAsYourself: After the narrator's repetition of how Javorsky was a kind man until he became the Beast, the scene with the rabbit works as an example of this trope.
* TheEndOrIsIt: The Beast comes back to life... and kisses a rabbit.
* FanService: The topless actress in the opening murder.
* FauxlosophicNarration: Trope on the page. How did it get there?
* FilmingForEasyDub: ''Beast of Yucca Flats'' was recorded silent, and the dialogue dubbed in later, so people only talk off-screen.
* ForScience: The Beast may or may not be motivated by "scientific progress". The narrator is not very clear on this subject.
* ILoveNuclearPower: An atomic bomb turns Joseph Javorsky into The Beast.
* ILoveTheDead: It is heavily implied that the killer at the start of ''The Beast of Yucca Flats'' abuses the woman's corpse.
* LullDestruction: The narrator talks constantly.
* PetTheDog: The Beast kisses a rabbit before dying.
* RRatedOpening: A topless woman is killed by someone.
* ScienceIsBad: Well, we think it is... it's kinda hard to tell. Joseph Javorsky tried to use science for good, but the evil it wrought overwhelmed and transformed him. As the wheels of progress turn, his fate will be the fate of us all. Or something...
* StopOrIWillShoot: Taken to the worst extreme. A sniper is sent up in a plane to bring down the suspected killer and starts shooting at a family dad who was looking for help for his family stranded on vacation. Naturally, the dad starts running, convincing the shooter he's found the guilty party.
