A real treat for B-horror film fans
26 February 2007 | by Mikel3See all my reviews

This film is a fun taste of late 60s low budget horror with a touch of 50s radiation phobia thrown in for good measure.

The acting by at least two of the leads were good, the rest were passable. The monster makeup was low budget for sure, but it has a certain "wow that's soooo weird" charm to it. Those bright glowing red toy marble like eyes are especially memorable. Many films with modern CGI f/x have had a much lesser effect on me.

The story is pretty predictable, but that doesn't matter much it makes up for it in weirdness, atmosphere and a bit of tropical eroticism. This movie is perfect for munching popcorn and pretending you're back in time at your favorite Drive-in. Hopefully you've got a date nearby to do a pretend yawn, arm-stretch, and cuddle with during the show. Love the movie trailers included on the DVD, especially the promo for the genuine *imitation* engagement and wedding rings given out to the movie goers of the time! 'Brides of Blood' get it. Wow, real plastic ! My guess is they were crackerjack box rejects. A trick probably even William Castle would have considered a cheap gimmick. (wink) If you enjoy B horror films this will not disappoint. Be sure to check out the trailers if you get your hands on the DVD.
