The definitive 50's monster movie.
4 April 1999 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie encapsulates everything most people think of when they refer to 50's monster movies. It's got a mad scientist, a laboratory full of sparking equipment, a reluctant assistant, an alligator filled pit and of course a full fledged pug ugly monster. All the elements come together perfectly. Like many people I saw this on tv as a child and now always think of it anytime someone mentions 50's monster movies.
