Crop And Save
Terrible, except for one thing.....
...or person, that is. I watched only to see the beautiful Danica McKellar. Grown up now and looking fine in swimwear, but even that can't rescue a poorly produced film. The special effects are so fake looking I suspect first year film students can do better. I didn't expect much more, a made-for-SyFy Channel movie gave me what I imagined. Danica is worth far more than this, and I hope she eventually gets roles that showcase her talent, not just her looks. Heck, cast her as a math wizard model in some hybrid story...she is a true math wizard, and I just hope she doesn't need crap like this to balance her checkbook. I'd have given it one star, but the added star is for Danica :)
From Hell It Came (1957)
I wood recommend this if you're out on a limb
How can you go wrong? A walking tree monster on a South Seas island with kookaburra birds crying in the background (they are from Australia....do they even inhabit the South Sea atolls??), pine trees growing in profusion on the atoll (uh??), oak trees (I ain't no botanist, but I can't recall if oaks grow there, either), the maiden who betrayed the Tabonga literally swimming herself out to the middle of the quicksand, and the Tabonga threatening to throw the good doctor into the quicksand, despite she's the one who revived the dying tree (I thought the myth of the Tabonga was a creature of revenge....what's he upset with her for? The acting in this film?).
I saw this as a kid and recently picked up a DVD of it. Still a hoot, a wonderful romp in Saturday afternoon "B" sci-fi movies. Dig this, it will grow on you....
