Movie Info

This early bit of "B"-movie fluff from Roger Corman and company is a hastily slapped-together melange of crime thriller and monster flick, laced with enough ham-fisted satire to make the entire mess enjoyable. The plot centers on a two-bit crook (Antony Carbone) who offers to transport a band of exiles from a war-torn Caribbean country -- along with a coffer of cash, which he intends to keep for himself. After killing his charges and dumping their bodies in the ocean, he blames their deaths on a

One of Roger Corman's notorious, no-budget quickies, knocked out in days in 1961

Audience Reviews for Creature from the Haunted Sea

Another one of Corman's no-budget quickies, and it plain sucks. The production value is extremely low. The film quality is grainy, the audio is barely audible in a few places, and the monster looks like a guy wrapped in a carpet with ping-pong eyes glued on. The acting does not save much, most are either phoning it in or are completely miscast for their parts. Don't be fooled by the title, the so-called creature is barely in the movie. The movie is actually a terrible crime thriller with incompetent comedic bits. The only saving grace of this film is the monster and that is only because of it's ridiculous design.

Some people might think this movie is stupid and cheesy, but I loved how ridiculous it was, I thought it was hilarious and a lot of fun. It's not just the characters or the story, but both together that make it so funny. I highly recommend this movie.

Opposed by incompetent spy Sparks Moran, a shady American expatriate and his gang of crooks try to cheat General Tostada and his crew out of the gold they are smuggling out of post-revolutionary Cuba by pretending a sea monster is on the loose. A surprisingly incompetent attempt at comedy from usually dependable screenwriter Charles W. Griffith that's only memorable because of the (deliberately) ridiculous looking, ping pong ball-eyed monster that shows up in the very end.

This movie is character only speaks in animal noises and the monster is clearly a shag carpet with ping pong balls for eyes.
