Stuffed with nearly all the essential ingredients for a '50s drive-in classic -- including rubber monsters, clean-cut biker gangs, countless inane rock & roll numbers, and twistin' teeny-boppers who appear to be about 35 -- this uproariously awful monster flick has secured a fond place in the hearts of bad-movie buffs. The horror of the title comes in the form of numerous scaly creatures whose fishy mouths are filled with a tube-like apparatus that makes them appear stuffed to overflowing with frankfurters. Spawned from both human remains and sea life (thanks to a healthy dose of ocean-dumped radioactive waste), the monsters emerge from the sea to dine on surfers and bikini-clad nymphs during a nearly constant teen beach party. Allen Laurel portrays a completely useless scientist who manages to find a solution to the monster menace only after his maid knocks over a vial of sodium on a specimen of one such creature. Armed with this knowledge, Laurel locates the flooded quarry that serves as the beasts' lair, allowing the military to give the critters what-for with a hail of sodium bombs. Director Del Tenney reportedly helmed several scenes from his sickbed while battling the flu... which probably explains quite a lot. The soundtrack features a plentitude of non-hits performed by surf-rockers The Del-Aires (named after the director?) including the toe-tapper "Zombie Stomp." ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
Curse of the Living Corpse
Future Jaws star Roy Scheider makes his big screen debut in this forgotten frightener about a deceased New England millionaire who returns from beyond the grave to torment his greedy heirs. Rufus Sinclair suffers from seizures that make it appear as if he has died, and as a result he is terrified that he will one day be buried alive. When Rufus does eventually pass away, his family gathers at the Sinclair estate for the reading of the will. Within that document dwells an ominous clause stating that should his relatives fail to follow his strict demands precisely as stated, Rufus will return from the dead to murder them in the manner which they fear most. Later, when his relatives casually brush off the macabre warning, Rufus returns to prove that he is indeed a man of his word. In addition to serving as Scheider's first feature film venture, Curse of the Living Corpse also marks the only documented film appearance of actress Candice Hilligoss with exception to her starring role in the atmospheric cult classic Carnival of Souls. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
