OVERVIEW

powered by AFI

Brief Synopsis

The monster, which looks like a nastier version of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon," invades a sleepy lighthouse town. The superstitious lighthouse keeper is worried for the safety of his beautiful teenage daughter (Carmen), so he leaves food for the monster, who dwells in a nearby cave. When bodies wash up ashore, the locals take notice.
