The Movie: The Mole People (1956)
What Is It?: No one who hasn't been licking hallucinogenic toads is going to rank The Mole People alongside Frankenstein or Dracula, but it's still a wild little B-level Universal monster flick. It starts off as a nifty adventure picture before taking a sharp detour into weirdsville, which is populated by mutant Mole Men and an Egyptian cult of albinos dressed like Santa's helpers. The introductory monologue by an English professor from the University of South California is as fascinating and ridiculous as the rest of The Mole People.
Why Today?: Today is Mole Day.
