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

Although it was shot in Denmark, producer Sidney W. Pink
had the dialog spoken in English. When the finished film was turned over to American International, Pink was informed that the dialog would be re-looped. AIP head Samuel Z. Arkoff
felt that what he called the "sing-song Scandinavian accents" would have U.S. audiences laughing. Pink objected and threatened to file suit. After Pink had other industry professionals view his version of the film, the lawsuit was dropped and AIP released the film in an edited and re-dubbed version. See more
