While discussing their "scientific" dilemma, Dr. Stevens and Prof. King assert that "heavy water" is found naturally in the depths off the coast. "Heavy water" is deuterium oxide and does not occur naturally, and is water enriched with the hydrogen isotope deuterium, not the result of water under pressure as our two scientists suggest.

While this Science fiction story lacks any real sense of credibility and our monster-The Phantom disappoints due to a lack of action and a rather plain appearance, there's enough inherent strangeness and weirdness going on here to make this an intriguing watch to fans of cult movies - the science fiction variety. Seeing Kent Taylor and Philip Pine is a treat here as always and they , along with Cathy Downs and Michael Whelan do give competent performances. Recommended mainly to those with a lot of patience and a love for Grade-Z movies.
