Great black and white photography in a movie that is a good little film until the monster shows up, 20 January 2008
Author: dbborroughs from Glen Cove, New York

This movie is one of those movies that should have been better. The basic plot has two room mates going off to a nudist camp for the weekends. One is a nurse at a research lab where an accident produces a nasty mix of chemicals that turns rats mean. The creator knowing its a bad thing, but through a series of contrivances the stuff ends up in a stream by the camp where it turns the caretaker in to an ax wielding maniac. The film turns surreal as a stock footage army arrives to kill the monster and it ends with everyone getting naked and wandering off to live happily ever after.

The pacing of this film is really slow. Had it not been, and had it not turned stupid once the monster appears this could have been a good nudist thriller. The people are mostly real and the plotting isn't that bad, its just the sort of thing that they tried to... I don't know what and messed it all up.

I do have to say that the photography and in the New York City scenes in particular is glorious black and white. This is a wonderful record of the city circa 1964. There is a sequence involving a photo shoot on a rooftop that is stunning and I'm tempted to print out one of the frames when and if I get a DVD ROM in my computer.
