Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Enjoyable low-budget monster movie from the deep hokum, despite obvious parallels to The Thing from Another World. When a UFO is discovered at the bottom of the sea near a marine research facility divers are sent to investigate, only to find a giant amphibian creature with a destructive agenda. Director Francis D Lyon keeps the pace lively, while the underwater scenes are especially well handled. There's also a nicely observed battle of wits between the scientists - keen to study the new species of alien - and the military, who are ever eager to drop a bomb on whatever they don't understand. Though clearly modelled on that nasty resident of the black lagoon, the monster is the film's definite highlight, even if you can spot the actor's scuba tank through the costume.
