The Monster of Highgate Ponds has recently been released by BFI as part of their Children's Film Foundation release, Weird Adventures.
A child's uncle brings back a Prehistoric egg from Malasya and gives it to his nephew David to look after. After a while, this egg hatches, revealing a dinosaur like monster. Very small at first, it soon starts to grow and David and his fried Chris release it into the lake on Hamstead Heath. 2 crooks are after the creature to money though...
This monster movie makes a change from others as the monster doesn't grow into a giant and go on the rampage, as in a lot of other movies in this period.
Monster of Highgate Ponds is a good way to spend an hour one evening. Great fun.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
