Attack of the Territorial and Horny Fish Creatures from Hell!!!
16 July 2008 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

The story is about these creature-of-the-black-lagoon-lookin-things wreaking havoc on a small fishing town. Throw in a subplot concerning a prejudice fisherman and some boobs and gore and you have Monster, aka Humanoids From the Deep.

I've always heard about this flick, but always seemed to erase it from my memory. And I don't know why. So, while cruisin the net I happened to come upon it once again. It happened to jar some memories loose, which told me it was about time I should check it out.

Well, I did, and I'm happy I have such a mediocre memory. This flick had almost everything I look for in 80's flicks. It had da boobs, da gore and da creatures....who rape chicks.

It's not all gravy unfortunately. I was kinda bored when the creatures weren't on screen. The fight scene with Vic Morrow and the lovey-dovey sex scenes were all entertaining, but the film seemed dull at points. Mostly when any lead actress was acting it up. Nevertheless, the flick ain't about talking chickens.

Humanoids from the Deep is a great example of awesome 80s horror. It had what a horror fan wants. Do yourself a favor and check this flick out if you want a cool creature flick with the woiks!
