I'm exactly sure where to post this since the movie in question is long gone from the theaters and I'm discussing the movie and not a DVD (if there is one). If the mods want to move this feel free to do so. Just watched this on TCM and it's a real stinker. It's like an Ed Wood movie with 10 times the budget ($10K ). Script, direction, and acting are all just plain bad. The actors are better than Ed's movies, but not by a lot. Willis O'brien is credited as ding the creature effects and they are a pale imitation of King Kong for sure. The dinosaur walks very stiffly, there's no fluidity to the moment. Never can you suspend critical belief and accept it as a living creature. I presume he was at the end of his career and had a limited budget. It's sad to see him associated with this movie.
