Public Domain Horror "Phantom of 10,000 Leagues"

"Phantom of 10,000 Leagues" is the finale of this Public Domain Series.
It is a disappointing finish, yet one sees how a disappointing film like this would inspire future film makers. While sitting in a "Drive-In," one future film maker would say something like, "I can do better than that."

The film opens in the open water and a lone fisherman is capsized and is killed by an under water monster. A scientist is called to investigate. He meets a girl who wears a one piece bathing suit and, when not sun tanning at the beach, works in the laboratory. Complications ensue on the beach.

This "Phantom" lacks any personality, even Roger Corman's "Creature from the Haunted Sea" made out of tennis balls and burlap, has more personality.
