In the mood for some Roger Corman goodness?
How about a small taste of a big monster in Corman's "Monster from the Ocean Floor".
An American tourist visits the beaches of Mexico and sees a strange alien creature. Thus begins our epic struggle with your typical B movie monster of the 1950s sci fi genre. Everything about this movie puts in firmly in the middle of the pack of bad movies. However, I kind of like bad monster movies.
The monster looks interesting, it's a sort of octopus with a single eye. It's just the sort of thing that I would have watched at 1 AM when the rest of the channels were off the air. I guess that I dated myself with that remark.
