War Gods of the Deep (1965)

Movie Info

Vincent Price and Tab Hunter star in this entertainingly silly adventure. Very, very loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe's "City in the Sea," War-Gods of the Deep starts off just right, with a stormy night and a huge old mansion by the sea. Before you know it, everyone is charging through secret passages and swimming around in enormous diving helmets. The plot zips along nicely, and the cast of pros knows just what to do with it. By this point in his career, Vincent Price could do tragic brooding menace with both hands tied behind his back, but he still puts his all into it like a champ. David Tomlinson also does a great job as half of a comic relief team--the other half being an uncredited chicken. This may not be a story for the ages, but it's not a bad way to spend an evening. -Ali Davis

Audience Reviews for War Gods of the Deep

What Surprised me about this movie is it's based on a Edgar Allen Poe Short Story. And of course any story written by Poe could have no one other then Vincent Price Play the bad Guy. This movie with the backgrounds and the colors reminded me of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The star of the show was the cochin bantam hen named Henry, Don't know any other movie who got in the credits. Little to much Rubber on the Sea monsters. 3 Stars and that?s a stretch, In my collection cause it came as a MGM Midnight Double.
