Well, this one is a bit different!! It has all the best of the 50’s monster movie clichés, a big ugly creature, some cool model and FX work, a trip to lovers lane in some big beautiful 50’s cars, a dance at the hop, a teen hero and his country girl next door love interest, some real good jump out of your seat moments, and in the end the kids save the day!! The strangest part about this movie is that the teen star sings and plays a mini banjo…not once but constantly!!!! Very strange indeed. Sometimes you forget your watching a horror movie and the idea goes thru your head that you’re really in a chick flick!!! HAAA! A lot of fun though; this one ranked high enough to land a showing on Mystery Science Theater. Awesome saturday night fodder!!!
