The Beast of Yucca Flats. A film by Coleman Francis.
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. The A-bomb. A man becomes a beast.
A topless woman is strangled. Nothing to do with the rest of the movie.
The beast kills a couple on vacation. Something about the wheels of progress. 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?:
- Author Appeal:
- Coleman Francis films. Vigilante shootings from a helicopter. Man's inhumanity to man.
- Unrelated prologue with a topless woman. Coleman Francis, a fan of nudie shots. Throws the topless scene in with little justification.
- Beige Prose: Narration. Full of sentence fragments and vague phrases.
- Contemplate Our Navels: Flag on the moon. How did it get there? The narration in this case is meaningful. Top secret Russian moon landing. Pictures of the moon serve as the movie's MacGuffin.
- Dull Surprise: Lots of people strangled. No one screams.
- Dying as Yourself: Joseph Javorsky, a once kind and noble man. Kisses a bunny at the end.
- The End... Or Is It?: The Beast is killed. Until he kisses a rabbit.
- FaceMonster Turn: Javorsky. Noted scientist. Worked for the betterment of mankind. Now? A beast. Kill. Just to be killing.
- Fanservice: Topless scene in the prologue.
- Fauxlosophic Narration: Trope on the page. How did it get there?
- Filming for Easy Dub: The movie was recorded silent. Dialogue dubbed in later. No one moves their lips on camera.
- For Science!: The Beast. The wheels of scientific progress, possible motivation. Movie isn't very clear.
- I Love Nuclear Power: The A-Bomb. A man becomes a Beast.
- I Love the Dead: Killer in the prologue. Implied that he abuses his victim's corpse.
- Lull Destruction: Never a quiet moment. A narrator who never shuts up. The filmmaker's inhumanity to man.
- Pet the Dog: The Beast kisses a rabbit.
- R-Rated Opening: A topless woman. Killed by someone unseen.
- Science Is Bad: Possibly. Movie still isn't very clear. Joseph Javorsky. Noted scientist. Tried to use science for good. Caught in the wheels of scientific progress.
- Soundtrack Dissonance: Music. Stock cues. What do those mean? The soundtrack just doesn't fit. Nothing.
- Stop, or I Will Shoot!: Taken to extremes. A sniper in a plane. A father, caught in the wheels of justice. A man runs, someone shoots at him.
