From the title you would not expect a monster movie now would you?
2 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie quite often when I was a young child, unfortunately I have not seen it since the 1980's so forgive me if I can not remember all the details of this flick. The title is rather funny though, as from the title I get the image of Gimli from the Lord of the Rings films and other drawfs doing the river dance or something. However, that is not the case as this movie is about some sort of creature from what I remember, and this creature is virtually unseen throughout the movie as it is confined to a rather monster infested finale. There is also a scene in which one guy is running from the unseen monsters and ends up somehow in really hot boiling water where part of his face gets burned away. However, a lot of the film is very forgettable as I am having the hardest time trying to recall plot points and stuff of that nature as most of what I remember is the monsters final attack at the end rather than any of the other scenes aside from the aforementioned guy above. So as much as I liked this movie as a kid I, that may be just a case of really enjoying cheesy monsters so I will give this movie a five and remember it for what it was unless I happen to catch it on television or something.
