A mad scientist (and apparent former Nazi) unleashes his master plan: to transform himself into a mutated walking catfish, gain revenge on those who have spurned him, and kidnap nubile young women to similarly transform so that he can breed. Or something like that. Written by
I actually really liked this film, but I am also a big fan of cheap, trashy, ugly little films from the 60s and 70s. This is one of the cheapest and ugliest, but it has a rough appeal to it nonetheless.
A nerdy, evil little scientist who looks like Elmer Fudd decides to turn himself into a giant fish monster, and succeeds...sort of. Actually, it looks like he slapped some mud on a gas mask and donned a suit made of out dirty Glad garbage bags. But if you like your monsters goofy, you'll like this one. Anyway, our bad tempered fish monster goes on a killing spree in remote Florida. When he's not killing, he's ogling a beautiful blond in a bikini and a conveniently beautiful scientist whose fatal mistake was to disrobe in front of the window and put on a pretty sun dress.
This film is absolutely ludicrous, but it's also a lot of fun. The unhappy ending was not something I saw coming, and was a shock since this film seemed to so very badly want to recapture the glory days of mad-scientist-making-monsters-in-their-basement-labs movies from the 50s. If you want to see a lot of truly stupid yokels getting killed, then this movie is for you. It's just bad enough to be entertaining.
