"This Is Getting More Interesting By The Minute!"... "Hey! You're Not Sven!"...
17 March 2019 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

After some wonderfully plodding, creepy music, THE MONSTER OF PHANTOM LAKE begins. When drums of "atomic waste" are heedlessly dumped into the titular body of water, there's more than mere pollution to worry about. Far more. The locals have no idea that horror beyond description awaits! Or, something like that. Oh no! A crazy hermit tumbles into the sludge, undergoing a terrible transformation! Soon, a hideous creature arises, spelling d-o-o-m! TMOPL is Christopher R. Mihm's masterwork of intentionally silly, 1950's-style sci-fi cheeeze. The acting and dialogue are suitably clunky, and the characters- scientists, highly suspect "teens", the canoe patrol, etc. are fun. The bucket-headed monster is as absurd as it's supposed to be, paying homage to actual schlock gems like HORROR OF PARTY BEACH. Mihm loves the genre, and the result is a joy to watch... EXTRA POINTS FOR: The musical interlude, complete w/ a theme song that just keeps a rockin', a rollin', and a ramblin'!... Oh yeah!...
