We all know of Frank's love for Cheepnis but has anyone ever heard of a list of FZ bad sci-fi faves? Surely over all of the interviews he's ever done, he's had to have rattled off enough that we can make a list of.

UPDATE: Awesome - thanks guys! Here's the updated list to-date....

1. It Conquered the World
2. Queen of Outer Space
3. The Creature From the Black Lagoon
4. Plan 9 From Outer Space
5. Godzilla
6. The Killer Shrews
7. The Beast From Haunted Cave
8. Rodan
9. The Brainiac

Of course
1. It conquered the world
- which BTW I always heard as "Ed conquered the world" in the preamble to Cheepnis.
