Plot Summary

The monster, which looks like a snarling "Creature from the Black Lagoon," invades a sleepy seaside town. The lighthouse keeper, newly widowed and estranged from the town folk, has been leaving food out for the monster for years, unaware of it's blood lust. When the monster's appetite outstrips the keeper's ability to serve it, bloodless decapitated corpses start to show up. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Piedras Blancas (Spanish for "White Rocks") actually exists. It's a town on the central California coast, and it does have a lighthouse that was used in this film, but only for exterior shots. The same lighthouse was used for exterior shots in Brave New World (1980). See more »
Goofs When the monster is trying to break through the steel door at the top of the lighthouse, it is a single door. But when he breaks through, it is a double door. This goof report is a mistake. The camera angle doesn't let the viewer see the other half of the double door when the monster is trying to break through. It's clearly a double door viewed fro the outside. If you carefully look, you can barely see the other half of the door when the monster is pushing on it. See more »
