Blood Beach warns us of the ever-present dangers of heading to the beach.  Specifically, you never know when something will suck you down beneath the surface and eat you.

Man I hare it when that happens.

What makes for a cult classic?  Damned if I know.  I think a decently made flick like Blood Beach might qualify.  It’s got a good script, good acting, good direction, and actor John Saxon in a disappointingly small role.

It’s not all roses, though.  There’s an unnecessary near rape scene that blemishes the experience.  On this, the monster, when seen, is sadly stiff.

Still, Blood Beach is one of the better Monster Movies (1.5 points)  I might be in the minority on this, but I had a great time watching it.  It rates a favorite with me, and if you give it a chance, you might like it too (2 points).

Your own mileage may vary, though.

Overall Score: 3.5 total point out of a possible 4
