Has anyone seen Robot Monster?

I saw the MST3K episode with Robot Monster last week and for the next few days I couldn't stop thinking about it. It's either one of the stupidest films I've ever seen or one of the most clever and I can't decide.

On the face of it the film is terrible. I mean how scary can an ape with a fish bowl be? But the film is saved by the twist at the end, that it's all the dream of a little boy who's obviously seen to many bad movies and read to many comic books. The twist itself isn't that spectacular, it's the most obvious twist in a film ever. The thing that gets me is that everything that is bad about the film can be justified by the fact it's the dream of a little boy. If I think back to when I was a kid, the stories I wrote were just as bad as this one for exactly the same reasons. If this was the intention then the film is brilliant. If not then it's just a really bad old film. Anyone that's seen it help me decide.
