Storyline

A portion of the tail of a prehistoric reptile is discovered in Denmark. It regenerates into the entire reptile, which proceeds to destroy buildings and property and generally make a nuisance of itself. It can fly, swim, and walk, and has impenetrable scales, which makes it difficult to kill. Written by Paul White <pwhite@bigfoot.com>

A great Prune Danish "Cheesy" movie
14 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We were stationed in Pensacola, Florida at Saufley field 1962-64. I was in 4th grade at the time and my parents told us they had a surprise for us. We were going to see a horror movie. I was very happy. Horror movies were my favorite. The folks use to take us to see a lot of movies at the base. I grew up seeing everything from "Lawrence of Arabia" to "From Russia With Love". It set the movie enjoyment tone for me that would carry on all throughout my life. As a kid at the time, I thought this horror movie was wonderful! It had the main element I liked: the army fighting a giant monster. This was right up my alley. As I saw the movie years later in college, I realized what a tacky treasure classic grade "B" movie it was. A "must see" with all your buddies after a day of partying! I think the American general had his face frozen in that one expression for the entire movie so he wouldn't start laughing.
