Storyline

While the hot rodders and motorcyclists are having a rock-and-roll beach party, a barrel of radioactive material is unloaded from a passing ship, plunges to the bottom and splits against a jagged rock. A black liquid oozes out and covers a shapeless mass on the ocean floor, which suddenly moves and becomes an encrusted vicious monster. Soon there are several monsters and they must have human blood to survive. Tina is the first victim, and football hero Hank Green and airhead Elaine Gavin enlist the aid of her science-professor father, Dr. Gavin, to solve and capture the killer. Not working fast enough to prevent the attack on twenty teen-agers at a slumber party nor the killing of three girl motorists, Dr. Gavin finds an arm lost by one of the monsters and discovers that only sodium will destroy the monsters whose composition is mostly water. Can they gather enough salt in southern California to put an end to this horror? Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

A detective says he's going to run a "carbon 14 test" on scales found at the first murder scene and, something to the effect of, "there's been major breakthroughs in the world of genetics." Carbon 14 is used for carbon dating, not genetics and it would be incredibly useless in a murder investigation. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gavin: Of course! This creature needs the ordinary necessities of human life - proteins, fats, sugars and so forth. But since his organs are so decomposed it needs the only food which can keep it alive.
Hank Green: Blood?
Dr. Gavin: Human blood. If a human body - a drowned person - were attacked by tiny sea plants which became parasites and completely infiltrated that human body before it had a chance to decompse, would the body be considered dead or alive?
Hank Green: Dead?
Dr. Gavin: No - it's still alive. But it's changed into a - well, is it ...

A poor horror film, even by 60's standards.
23 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

No doubt one of the poorest films that was to be produced in the 60's. I know it must have seemed like a good idea at the time. Both beach movies and horror films were popular at the time, and it probably seemed like a sure bet for the people in charge, but I can't lie, this is terrible. The monsters are so unrealistic, your mouth will drop, they even have hot dogs crammed in their mouths. Then there's the human actors: some guy with a southern accent, an easily excited maid, and a loser scientist. While nothing really bad like "Pod People" or "Manos...", but this still qualifies as one of MST3k's greatest works. Wait, I take that back, they're all great works!
