Public Domain Horror Classics - "Creature from the Haunted Sea" - CinemaDave

Jun. 2nd, 2010 10:33 am Public Domain Horror Classics - "Creature from the Haunted Sea"

In his autobiography, Roger Corman has admitted that "Creature from the Haunted Sea" maybe his most personal movie. For the most part, "Creature from the Haunted Sea" is a fun movie with goofy characters and a goofier monster. Yet at 75 minutes, "Creature from the Haunted Sea" is 16 minutes too long with dialogue scenes that drone on and on.

Yet, if one looks at this movie as a Roger Corman home movie featuring leading man Robert Towne (future screen writer for "Chinatown") as an American Secret Agent investigating Cuban loyalists and American mobsters, this 1961 movie reflects the mood and concerns of the changing American culture.
