A shoestring budget monster film that blew my expectation away.
The heat of a meteor crashing into the lake incubates a prehistoric egg, which grows into a plesiosaur-like monster that terrifies the community and eats those daring enough to go into the lake, like a couple on a honey moon, a felon, and a mild-mannered fisher-man. Granted, the acting is bad (even though actor Mark Siegel went on to have a great effects career at Industrial Light and Magic)and the poor sound and picture quality of the crown international VHS (I just bought my copy of this film on DVD, much better video quality!), and the irritating flaws (How can that chick see "stars" in the middle of the day? How come a cop is driving over a course of 6 MONTHS to get to a dinner?), but despite the poor continuity and plot holes, I must admit that I did enjoy this film. The stop-motion special effects for the dinosaur are excellent, the suspense is adequate, the characters are quit funny, (unintentionally, most of the time) and it was pretty fun to watch and poke at the flaws.......enjoy!
