The monster, which looks like a nastier version of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon," invades a sleepy lighthouse town. The superstitious lighthouse keeper is worried for the safety of his beautiful teenage daughter, so he leaves food for the monster, who dwells in a nearby cave. When bodies wash up ashore, the locals take notice. Written by
The monster suit looks like the one from Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), mainly because the creator of The Creature, Jack Kevan, produced and supervised the make-up effects on the film. Much is credited to Universal-International's standard make-up credit of Bud Westmore, but he had little to do (other than posing for publicity photos) with the great monsters from that studio in the '50's.

The "meat cleaver" covered in the monster's blood can clearly be seen to be a prop made from painted wood even in close-up shots. 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.
