Some good location work and a unique monster can't make up for a dreadful plot and terrible production
1930's sleep inducer about a sailing ship taking a side trip to find a native son of its home port who may be still alive on island in the south seas. They find the man and also battle the title monster which is a giant manta ray. Pure soap opera and hokum that gets points for the early scenes of a harbor full of sailing ships, some location shots of things that have now passed into history and for a giant manta ray as a monster, but the soap opera is terrible and trying to watch it last night I did the same thing I did when I taped this off cable a decade and a half ago-I fast forwarded through a good chunk of it. The unique visuals are a reason to see this, however only on scan. Only for those wishing for a good nights sleep.
