Films that can't be as cool as their poster art (an occasional series)


I submit to you that there is no way this film can be even close to as fantastic as its amazing poster. Directed by Amando Ossorio of BLIND DEAD fame and starring Ray Milland I must eventually see it, of course. But there is no way it is even a fraction as good as this artwork would have me believe.

I'd eat my hat if the monster in the film looked anywhere near as cool. Hell, I'd lick my cap if the characters even ended up on a raft. Notice how I backpeddle a bit on the second boast.

Well, I've placed an order for this dubious bit of cinema joy and have been informed that the FX are Ed Wood level. Somehow that just adds to my desire to see it.

I'd be interested to howl at this one, myself.

I especially like the El-train (across the water?) going past the Lighthouse (Assateague, VA?)...

Of course, if it doesn't have Agar, how good can it really be?
