The Caltiki monster is similar to the monsters in "The Blob" and "X, The Unknown", but this one is made of living lava. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie both as a kid and as an adult. Even though the plot line is very standard, it has some tense moments when they realize what makes Caltiki grow, and that they left it back at the lab in ideal growing conditions. If you're a B movie fan, this is a must see.
