Goofs

The professor is suspicious of a handwritten letter he gets and mentions that the last name is misspelled. Later, he gets a typed letter which shows the first name misspelled, from Henry to Henery, but the professor does not take notice (perhaps because he is so frightened of the message in the typed letter?).

B movie horror
2 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story is about some reports of strange creatures that surfaced in a wooded area after a big flood. It begins with the investigative professor in an asylum. What struck me as very interesting is the name of the asylum, Arkham Sanitarium. "Arkham" is the exact same name of the small town that the 1965 horror movie, Die Monster Die, also begins with. Coincidence?

The cinematography is poor, but expected in a $1,000 budget movie . The main actor, Ken MacGregor, reminds one of a high schooler doing a poor job of acting scared. A few times in the movie, it feels like one is waiting for grass to grow. If this movie was shown back in the 1960s, it would have been scary, but for the 2010s era, it is a bit dull, although watchable, if you are really bored.
