The Monster is realistically described as member of the real-world Diplovertebron family. Diplovertebrons were an extinct genus of Anthracosauria (Labyrinthodont) that lived in the Late Carboniferous period (Moscovian) some 300 million years ago. They were medium-sized amphibians, 60 cm in length, with triangular shaped skulls similar in look to crocodiles. Newspaper reports of fossil examples found in Pennsylvania during the late 1950s may have inspired the scriptwriter. See more »

Great Monster Suit, formula 50's horror-but still fun.
Mediocre acting. Great Man in a monster suit. A scaler version of the Creature from the Lost Lagoon. And some surprising for '59 gore featuring some.... yep decapitations with a little blood! In black and white.
Light house keeper puts out food for legendary monster. Most people thinks he's crazy and of course ignore his warnings. Then some surfers wind up losing their heads.
No real surprises. But if you're in the mood and want to see a pretty good man in a monster suit movie, this will fit the bill.
