Don Barton, creator of cult classic ‘Zaat,’ dies at 83
Don Barton brought “Zaat” to life in the early 1970s, and while the movie about the giant radioactive walking catfish-human monster was quiet for decades, it never really went away.
After 45 hours of exposition and stock footage about the wonders of the walking catfish, the World’s Worst Mad Scientist finally gets around to injecting himself and turns into a rubber masked unicorn of some sort. He looks in the mirror. “Not much like a catfish, but it IS beautiful!!’ *facepalm*
