The Monster of Piedras Blancas
Lonely lighthouse-keeper Sturges (John Harmon) keeps mostly to himself, doing his job, which includes warning people away from the beaches and caves near the Piedras Blancas lighthouse. But when two fishermen are found dead, all-but-beheaded and without a trace of blood in their bodies, that brings Constable Matson (Forrest Lewis) and Dr. Jorgenson (Les Tremayne) snooping around. And suddenly the village is being stalked by some kind of monstrous creature, capable of killing anyone in its path. Sturges reveals what he knows, but this may be too late to save his daughter Lucy (Jeanne Carmen) or himself. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

    A favorite '50s 'Creature Feature'

    This is a typical, low-budget 'B' movie with one of the better monsters. It's a short movie, just over 70 minutes, and it gets going real quick so you have to identify the characters as you go along. The monster shows up several times but most of the action is off screen. If you grew up watching Saturday 'Creature Feature' movies you should like this, if not, it may not be for you.

    While it may always be second fiddle to THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS has some gruesome delights and Jeanne Carmen so what's not to like? Never before released on even DVD or laserdisc, this new Blu-Ray is the way to go.

    Classic B Horror

    If you love B horror films, this is one of the best and until now has been difficult to find in home video format. The bluray looks great. Glad to see these classic B horror films being released in high quality.
