Guess who got the gold?,
This review is from: Creature from the Haunted Sea [DVD] (DVD)
Are you can tell this film has the Roger Corman fingerprint and the Roger Corman budget. We even have the standard Roger Corman dialog. There is a color version of this movie floating around out there but we all know that all true art films are in black and white. Be prepared to take the plunger ... oops I mean plunge.
It is the Cuban revolution and only trusted gangsters from Sicily are allowed to leave the dock. So hidden on Renzo Capetto's (Antony Carbone, sounds more sinister than his character's name) yacht is the pilfered Cuban treasury in gold. The absconders are a Cuban general, Col. and troops.
The trick for Renzo and his cronies is to separate the Cubans from the gold. The plan to create an elusive sea monster that can each Cubans. However, what if there really is a sea monster that prefers Cuban? This is just one of the overlying plots that include love triangles over triangles and government spies.
In the end who gets the girl and who gets the gold? You may pleasantly be surprised. People that enjoy Corman-esque films may give this a higher rating yet I believe that it is trying excessively hard to be campy.
