Don't Let the Riverbeast Get You! Until the DVD Comes Out

It's been a few months since we last heard anything about the wonderfully titled low budget, man-in-suit monster movie Don’t Let the Riverbeast Get You!, which once again proves The Cabin in the Woods was correct about everything being better with a merman.


A vicious monster has arisen from its watery lair! It's the Riverbeast, and he's threatening a peaceful New England town. Local tutor Neil Stuart has seen the beast before, but nobody believed his story, making him the town laughingstock.

Don't Let the Riverbeast Get You While Watching this Trailer

I don’t know if the movie will be good or bad, but I can’t look at the costume without it warming the cockles of my heart. It’s goofy and ghastly, wonderfully so.
