 "I've told him before that bourbon and water go together, not bourbon and radiation!"

 This has always been one of my favorite 50s monster-on-the-loose flicks. I'm not exactly sure why but I think it has something to do with a monster who wears pants being such an absurd visual that I can't help but love it! This is also why I rank THE ALLIGATOR PEOPLE(also from 1959) so high. This monster here is a bit cooler though since he hangs out in a dive bar and ends up in a sleazy ladies bedroom which makes him much more relatable to me personally. Also after killing a bully he goes home and just wants to be left alone in his room which means this monster is somewhat in control and not a mindless rampaging creature which is a neat twist for a 50s monster. For such an obviously low-budgeted film this really stands out and I think it should be a more popular cult-classic. Maybe if it had ever been on Mystery Science Theater the 30-year-old monster-kids would rate it higher.
 There was a re-dubbed comedy version of this movie called in 1983 called WHAT'S UP HIDEOUS SUN DEMON?(AKA REVENGE OF THE SUN DEMON) that I have not seen and I'm not sure I need to.

 AKA THE (regular/non-hideous)SUN DEMON:
