Dr. Who and the Daleks is the perfect second feature (1968)

Dr. Who

"Dr. Who and the Daleks" is the perfect second feature to play side-by-side at the Community with "Night of the Living Dead." It blazes the same tired trails, is just as atrociously bed, and will never, earn the boy scout salute.

The question really seems to be why Hollywood even bothers malting movies like this any more. Any intelligent adult who was weaned on Superman, Batman and Captain Marvel (and who wasn't?) has to find such films adolescent. And today's kids are so sophisticated that horror films simply stimulate their cerebrums to laughter —but never to blood-churning gasps.

Even today's 8-year-olds find the Dracula-Frankenstein syndrome more campy than chill bumpy; giggle as much at the blood-letting as they do through a Clackers cereal TV commercial.
