Creature from the Haunted Sea (1961)
Ridiculous. Not really a horror film. More of a silly comedy with political subplots.
The narration is a kind of amusing.
Not very interesting to watch.
The monster is as silly as one would expect from a Roger Corman movie. Too bad it takes forever to show up.
Best part is definitely the finale.
Schlock-master Roger Corman is playing with genres here to make something other than a low-grade monster movie. In this case, the low-grade monster element turns out to be the most interesting part of the movie. Unfortunately, the monster scenes are relegated to the last five minutes of the movie, making this kind of a waste of time. Not really fun to watch, despite some amusing narration and another pretty ridiculous monster in Corman's menagerie.
