Audience Reviews for The She-Creature

½

How anyone could be a sea monster in a past life is beyond my understanding, but other than that the movie is pretty interesting. Not great, but interesting.

An experiment in past life regression calls forth a scaley monster with enormous boobs. Evil Dr. Lombardi is able to use hypnosis to summon the breasted beast but good ole' handsome and kind 'Ted' steps in to save the day. The She-Creature is an old fashioned low budget schlock-fest best seen from the back seat of a Studebaker at your local drive-in.

I have called her from the unknown debts of time A mysterious hypnotist seems to be knowledgeable of some recent strange activities taking place around the city. A serial killer has been slaying people and leaving limited evidence. Is the hypnotist responsible for the murders, some how involved, or just at the wrong place at the wrong time? "It is so tiresome to continue to remind you to mind your own business." Edward Cahn, director of Beauty and the Beast (1962), Noose for a Gunman, Dragstrip Girl, Voodoo Woman, Girls in Prison, and Silent Fear, delivers The She-Creature. The storyline for this picture is on par with other monster movies from this time period. The monster was interesting and the acting was better than average. "As long as I'm alive, I'll possess you." The She-Creature aired during this past Halloween season and we DVR'd it. The content was interesting and the hypnotist was well presented. The story was better than I anticipated and the monster was well delivered. This movie is worth seeing if you're a fan of old school horror movies. "I was communicating with your thoughts before you left your house." Grade: C+
