Storyline

Lord Doom, evil master of Proyas, the Dark Planet, sends Kraa the Sea Monster to Earth as part of his plan to dominate the galaxy. To keep the meddling hands of the Planet Patrol out of his scheme, he incapacitates their nearby space station. Fortunately, the alien agent Mogyar is on hand to land on Earth to stop the giant sea-beast. Accidentally landing in New Jersey rather than Italy (where scientists could have helped Mogyar build a weapon to stop Kraa), Mogyar must overcome his stereotypical Italian accent and strange appearance in order to ally with nearby humans to save the day.

Great, for a B-Movie!
15 August 1998 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

What do you get if you cross a big monster (more scarier than the 98 Godzilla, I might add), an alien with an Italian accent, an intellectual biker, a diner waitress, and a group of teenage intergalactic police officers?

Answer: A soon-to-be classic B-movie known as Kraa! the Sea Monster.

When renting this film, don't be expecting a movie that will send chills down your spine, cause it won't.

Don't rent this film thinking it will someday be an Oscar Award winner, cause it never will.

You SHOULD rent this film for a good laugh at a low budget film that has an award winning plot. What award that is, I'm not really sure.

The Italian alien always made me giggle, and the performance of Garth, one of the Intergalactic cops portrayed by Anthony Furlong is also very noteworthy.

Don't let this movie disappear from the New Releases shelves into the world of lost Sci-Fi. If you don't see it now, you might not ever have the will to see it.
