“Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine names it ‘Shock Award Winner’…The World’s most shocking monster stalks its unsuspecting prey, feasts its eyes on the next victim to writhe in its slimy arms! The screen’s most nightmarish beast! A claw-fingered, scaly-skinned half-human crustacean, turning a lonely lighthouse village into into a frenzied bedlam of blood-curdling horror!”
We sometimes forget how violent ’50s horror sci-fi could get, and this is a prime example, with the monster walking around with his victims decapitated heads and so on. No classic by any means, but one of the more successful Gillman knock-offs nonetheless.
