Giant mutant bunnies! Werewolves in lipstick! Harry Hamlin wearing a mini-toga! You can relish these and other spine-chilling oddities on MonsterVision: A Simple Television Experiment Gone Completely Berserk! Hosted by Penn & Teller, the four-night TNT movie marathon unspools 23 classic and not-so-classic sci-fi and horror films, including The Thing, King Kong (1933), Queen of Outer Space, Night of the Lepus, Clash of the Titans, and the ultimate sci-fi stinkeroo, Plan 9 from Outer Space. ”Actually, Plan 9 isn’t that bad,” insists Penn Jillette. ”My idea of a bad movie is one that’s boring, like The Big Chill, Manhattan, or The Turning Point. Those films are really scary.” But, of course, that’s another marathon.
