At minute 02:30, when the barrels are being dumped in the lake, the barrel is fully horizontal before any liquid begins running out. It is a liquid, not a sludge as stated by the gent carrying the barrel to the lake. See more »

User Reviews

For a parody, the film is amazingly dull.
29 October 2020 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Monster of Phantom Lake" is a modern parody of 1950s schlock horror films. Because of this, it's filmed in black & white and features many familiar elements from many of the movies...including the know-it-all professor, a group of dopey teens and a monster that looks about as scary as a taco! So why did I give this one only a 3? Well, because to parody genre which is already like a parody isn't really funny...and this film really could have used an infusion of funny. In fact, I had a hard time even paying attention to it.

The same folks appear for a sequel, "It Came From Another World" (2007). Perhaps with this one they found the right balance and it's more enjoyable. As it is, I would much rather just see a cheesy 50s horror film instead of this.
