Just as you thought it was safe to go into the water, something comes out of the water to go get you.  Is it an animal? A shark? All devil?

A monstroid?

No, it’s Monster, one of the worst giant monster movies of all time.  And by worst I mean gloriously, gloriously bad.

We got all the symptoms.  We got questionable acting.  We got padding a plenty.  We got a supposed director who may or may not have ever been present on set.  Most telling of all, we’ve got John Carradine in an extended cameo as a local priest.

And the monster F/X!  Cheesy, goofy goodness.

All in all a bad flick. (0.5 point).  A little let down there’s no small town stomping good, but I’m quite fond of Monster for some reason (1.5 points).

Don’t… don’t look at me like that. I’m ashamed enough as is.

Overall Score: 2 total points out of a possible 4
