4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good Corman spoof, 10 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creature From The Haunted Sea [1961] [DVD] (DVD)
Useless crook Sparks Moran(Edward Wain) alias useless secret agent XK150, has managed to become one of a gang of crooks who are shipping illegal Cubans to America, along with plenty Cuban money. The gang leader Renzo Capetto(Anthony Carbone), a man with a list of alias as long as his arm, wants all that money for himself, so along with his dastardly associates Mary-Belle, Pete and Happy Jack, he concocts the story of a monster who lives in the ocean and kills people. In reality its the gang bumping off the Cubans one by one. However Capetto didnt count on a real monster turning up either. Meanwhile Moran is in contact with another special agent in Havana, engaging in some ridiculous 'code' dialogue with her. Will he be able to thwart Capetto's plans, and save the day?
First and foremost this is a spoof. Anybody expecting a straight laced 50's monster movie will be dissapointed. The monster is ridiculous, but thats in keeping with the toungue in cheek feeling the film has. In fact, it looks likes a giant turd when its swimming along the surface of the sea. Villianous Mary Belle breaks into song at any oppurtune moment, in between planning to kill Cubans, and Capetto's right hand man Pete prefers to communicate using mating calls of animals. Capetto rewards him with lollies. Its not laugh a minute stuff, but its quite surreal in tone, and engaged me throughout. One of Corman's best early films. 4 out of 5
The only drwaback is the terrible transfer used in the Elstree Hill release. It does detract a little from the enjoyment of the film
