so bad its good
30 September 2006 | by vampi1960See all my reviews

its alive!not to be confused with Larry Cohen's;its alive about the mutant baby.is a bizarre low budget movie about a reptile loving farmer (bill Thurman)who has a tourist trap in the south with snakes and lizards.and something he keeps in a cave,a bizarre monster that looks like one of the creatures from horror of party beach minus the sausages. well some travelers happen along(tommy kirk,Shirley bonne)and stumble on the demented farmers secret.i saw this on TV very late at night as a teen and found it kind of creepy and unsettling,now i watch it and find it very funny and silly.it was made by Larry Buchanan who did many remakes of roger corman and American international pictures.this was one of the better ones.bill Thurman starred in all of Buchanan's monster films.i have to say this movie is so bad its good.the monster is hilarious.i believe this was done on a ultra low budget.5 out of 10.
