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.
