A crappy and stupid monster terrorizes...ah, who cares?!
30 July 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Monster" is a terrible film that sat uncompleted for nearly a decade. Eventually, the movie was slapped together and released--which would explain why some of the actors look so young for 1979-80 when it finally hit theaters.

The story is about a village in Columbia that really sucks. On one hand, they have a cement factory that has provided jobs BUT which poisons the water. And, on the other, they've now got a monster in the lake and it likes killing folks. Naturally, the evil corporate types only care about profits and wait an awful long time to try to take on the monster. As for the monster, it's one of the cheapest and lousiest looking ones I've ever seen--and every bit as bad as ones you'd see in schlock films like "The Curse of the Swamp Creature", "The Horror of Party Beach" or "The Creeping Terror". The film isn't particularly interesting, though catching occasional glimpses of the ludicrous monster is good for a few laughs.
