    Behemoth, the Sea Monster
    A perennial of the "Shock Theatre" TV circuit of the 1950s, The British The Giant Behemoth owes a great deal to the earlier American sci-fier The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. A Cornish fisherman is found covered with what looks like radiation burns. Before he dies, the fisherman utters the word "behemoth," citing a monster alluded to in the Bible. It isn't long before England is besieged by a dinosaur-like monstrosity, evidently the by-product of atomic fallout. Only a high-powered torpedo stands between the Giant Behemoth and the helpless British citizenry. The film's stop-motion animation is pretty good, considering the tight budget; all the title character lacks is the distinctive personality of a King Kong, Godzilla or Gorgo. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Decent DVD, lean on extras

      Picture quality & sound are excellent. Not much for extras, but not surprising. The Giant Behemoth is a minor entry in 50s Sci-Fi. Includes commentary with Lucasfilm special effects veterans Dennis Murren & Phil Tippett.
