WHY SCIENCE FICTION FILMS ARE BAD FOR YOU: It gives you unreasonable expectations of success. In THE GIANT CLAW, the weird creature is a large bird "covered with anti matter particles" which causes all kinds of problems when they attempt to shoot it down when all weapons explode before they can impact on the giant Beaky Buzzard. The anti matter speculation is whomped up as a theory, a weapon is built and "we've only got one chance to use it."

Because the film ends in five minutes.
