The Salton Sea was formed from a pre-dam flood of the Colorado River. The dam project that created Hoover Dam (Boulder Dam) was a result of flood control. A boomtown grew around the lake, with all the typical real estate promotional hype. As the lake shrunk, and values dropped, the area became a near ghost town. See more »
In the underwater "pool" where the creatures are supposed to reside they are shown as Monoplacophorans- meaning they have a shell like a snail. When the creature is shown out of the water in the office attack and lock attack scenes it appears as a Polyplacophoran- meaning flexible plates on the dorsal side instead the carry along shell. Only in a Hollywood movie could a creature be both types of mollusk. See more »

I find that people are always jumping to conclusions about nuclear reaction. Science fact and science fiction are not the same thing, not the same thing at all.

I saw this movie at the theatre in 1957 when it came out. I was just a child and it scared me. I had to walk home in the dark after the movie and I glad I made it. I am going to try to find it in a video rental store and watch it again with some popcorn and my grandson. From what I remember, the movie was pretty good, but of course, nothing like today's special effects. Good Viewing To All!!!
