Yet another cult film that they through the "worst ever" moniker at. I mean come on, how many more movies can people call the worst ever? I can think of dozens of movies that Hollywood pump out to numb our minds, that are far worst than the movies that get called the "worst ever!" Anyway, back to Astro-Zombies...
Directed by the cult film-maker Ted V. Mikels, and starring John Carradine, is a great piece of late 60s schlock "take your brain out" horror sci-fi. So good in fact that Mikels waiting 34 years before doing a sequel, 2002's Mark of the Astro-Zombies, a third one in 2010, Astro Zombies M3: Cloned and a forth and final sequel in 2012 Astro Zombies M4: Invaders from Cyberspace. Though to be fair to Mikels, he'd lost his touch and the original Astro-Zombies of 1968 is by far the best. Now the title is somewhat misleading, as the creature in the movie are neither from space or is a zombie in the traditional sense. But a mad scientist does create a Frankenstein-esque monster from a dead body parts and a criminals brain, that is called Astroman.
