Having not seen this picture in almost twenty years, it's not on video, and rarely, if ever, re-shown on television, one can understand why. It's a wretched mess. Filmed in color on location in Brazil, it stars John Bromfield and Beverly Garland as a hunter and a doctor seeking a legendary monster that is killing natives. Anyone expecting a real beast will be gravely disappointed. The insipid musical score detracts from the creepy goings-on; it's poorly directed with abysmal special effects. The jungle cliches are in abundance, with Bromfield making a play for the unreceptive (at first) Garland. Check out the tent scene wherein the beast creeps up on her - she screams before even getting a good look at her intruder. Some of the scenery is beautiful, but can not save this dreary disaster.
