Underwater B-movie mayhem!
10 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know many people will think I'm crazy giving this 7 out of 10 but i really enjoyed this movie so much i had to buy the DVD on ebay.its one of those movies i saw as a kid back in jersey on creature features. the monster looks like the creature from the black lagoons poor cousin. awesome b-movie cast the great Scott Brady playing a good guy for once, Gary Merrill(mysterious island)Sheree north(Kramer's mom on Seinfeld) James hong(big trouble in little china)mike road(voice of race banning on johnny quest)and john Howard(the unknown terror)the plot is somewhat like 1989s deepstar six kind of.there's a flying saucer underwater,and a big green scaly monster with flipper feet.the music is from the b-movie gem the angry red planet(60)its an enjoyable little b-movie. 7 out of 10.
