remake or similar title?[edit]

IMDB shows a movie in production with the title "666: Beginning of the End" but the only thing in common is the title. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1339052/ Naaman Brown (talk) 18:05, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

The current plot section of the new film's IMDb page makes it obvious that it's an entirely different subject. Beginning of the End is about giant grasshoppers; 666: BotE is an religious-apocalyptic film. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 00:07, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Who made this film?[edit]

In the MST3K version, the company who made the picture's name is blacked out, "© MCMLVII by [BLACKED OUT] Pictures Corporation". -- Evertype· 13:07, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Why remove historical context?[edit]

Why remove the context which led to this picture being made? That makes no sense. Many films are based on hit novels or plays, which are rationales for their being turned into films. Others occur because of existing trends (e.g., the glut of sci fi films after the release of Star Wars). That there were a raft of sci fi films made in the 1950s needs explanation. That the "big bug" subgenre became an important part of this does not just need to be stated, but should be explained. And that this subgenre's success led to the production of this film is critical to understanding why it was made. That other (shoddy) film articles don't include this kind of analysis is no reason to cut it from this one. - Tim1965 (talk) 14:43, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Mistake in refs[edit]

I found a mistake in one of the references. I could not find any newspaper called Decatur Herald and Courier, but I did find a paper called Decatur Herald & Review and it has an author named Tim Cain. So I figured this was a simple mistake and took the liberty to change it. 64.40.54.201 (talk) 04:06, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
