Universal, which brought us massive hits like E.T. and the Jurassic Park movies, were responsible for this.
It is the worst of the Universal monster movies of the 1950's, but I loved it. It is one of the better so-bad-it's-good movies and the thing that surprised me the most was that it was shot in colour, despite the low budget.
The 'monster' has to be seen to be believed. The main female lead in this, Beverly Garland, is used to fighting out of this world monsters as she fought the 'carrot' in It Conquered the World.
See this if you get the chance. It is worth watching just to see the 'monster'.
