Ultra-cheap CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON wannabe
14 May 2003 | by (the rock) – See all my reviews

I watched STING OF DEATH on the Something Weird DVD and it's fun and silly movie from the 60s with very little going for it except some excellent cinematography (sharp image!) and a good looking cast of unknowns. The film is not scary and the monster is hilarious. The set for the monster's hideaway is pure papier maché. You can actually see the woman make the "rocks" move just by touching them. It's definitely a must see for folks who like ultra cheap horror movies, for a laugh or for some sort of interesting time capsule. Personally, I prefer STING OF DEATH over DEATH CURSE OF TARTU. The characters weren't as annoying as those in TARTU. Those silly "Do The Jellyfish" dancing scenes are really something else. And the bodycount is very high. But like TARTU, nothing about all of this is very convincing, well except for the excellent underwater cinematography.
