    From Hell It Came
    This uproariously bad monster mess is set on a remote tropical island, where a native prince places a curse on the elders just prior to his execution for breaking tribal law, promising to return from the dead for revenge. He does, of course -- but he can only manage to return from the grave as a giant walking tree. (His obvious displeasure with having assumed this shape is indicated by the tree-thing's permanently constipated expression.) There is some indication given that his resurrection has something to do with atomic testing taking place on the island, but this is obviously incidental to the real plot, which treats viewers to endless scenes of natives running in horror from a shambling, ticked-off rubber stump. In print, this sounds like broad comedy material, but the only laughs to be found in this clunker are purely unintentional. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

      A Classic Low-Budget 50's Monster Movie

      If you'd like to revisit that genre of low-budget monster movie in which fear of the atomic age, a thin story line, questionable acting, and unbelievably bad costumes are conjoined, this is it. More than 50 years ago, when I was very young, my dear brother described this movie to me, and I was afraid to see it. Seeing it on DVD in sharp resolution (for such an old movie) in the comfort of my home brought back fun memories of a simpler time.

      Zombie vegetation stalks people

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      Just an old movie about man accused of curse, then killed and buried. It then grows into a zombie tree that walks around attacking the people. Laughable visual effects but entertaining.
