Run the slow movie giant crayfish are coming
12 January 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Edited version of the serial Panther Girl of the Congo really doesn't work. Partly because many of the later Republic serials were too by the numbers to be much of anything but cutting the 12 chapters down to under 100 minutes cut what little life was in the story out. The plot has the title character, given the name because she slew a panther that had been terrorizing a native village, taking on a mad scientist out for diamonds and using giant crayfish to scare the natives. Even by giant monster movie standard this movie is a mess with the giant crustaceans being more comical in their ponderously slow motion then menacing. Whats worse is the always seem to learn to one side seemingly drunk. Its a not very good version of a not very good serial making for even worse entertainment.
