"I Don't Have To Believe This Scientific Jazz Of Yours!"...
9 December 2018 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

CREATURE OF DESTRUCTION is another of Director, Larry Buchanan's (ZONTAR THE THING FROM VENUS) cinematic anvils to the cranium. This time, there's a hideous monster on a murderous rampage! Enter Dr. John Basso (Les Tremayne- ANGRY RED PLANET), a clairvoyant practitioner of mesmerism and speaker of mumbo jumbo. Along w/ his assistant, Doreena (Pat Delaney), he prognosticates doom for certain humans in the area. More unexplained deaths occur. Could it have something to do w/ Basso and his "regression hypnosis"? The police are baffled, and so are we. A languid remake of the listless SHE CREATURE, this movie lumbers along, featuring a monster even more absurd than the original- Picture Kermit T. Frog's pop-eyed head on someone in a green wet suit, growling like a motorcycle that won't start. Tremayne, playing his role w/ histrionic glee, towers above the other "actors" in the film, who play their parts and recite their lines as if they'd been handed the script cold, five seconds before filming! Not one of Buchanan's "better" movies, it mostly consists of chatter and static. Dull as a butter knife, it saves all of its "excitement" for the less-than-stellar denouement. Co-stars Annabelle Weenick (DON'T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT) as a woman who sits in a chair a lot. EXTRA POINTS FOR: The rockin' beach parties that spontaneously erupt throughout the movie! Crazy, man! Crazy!...
