Critic Reviews for The Monster of Piedras Blancas
Some clumsy plotting and an overly familiar template render this no more than average.
Quite possibly the only monster movie named after birdcrap.
Audience Reviews for The Monster of Piedras Blancas
The film that broke new ground for the gore generation. Even though it might be an imitation of Creature from the Black Lagoon it is still worth watching. Even though I am not a fan of the gore genre I found this little movie a nice breath of fresh air after watching all the cheap imitations of countless other films. In short a chilling and terrifying monster movie.
I first saw this on television as a kid and I've got to say it scared the hell out of me. Definitely one of the ugliest of the man-in-a-suit creatures of this era. One scene in particular still gives me the 'willies': the monster carrying a human head by the hair. This may not be too thrilling in this day and age, but if you enjoy the golden-age monster movies, I'd place this on your list.
