Humanoids from the Deep
Directed by Barbara Peeters, Jimmy T. Murakami
In this gory low-budget shocker from the Roger Corman stable, genetically treated salmon escape the plant and are eaten by coelacanths, who mutate into humanoid monsters with giant craniums and sharp claws. The creatures begin attacking teen couples, killing the boys and mating with the girls (in some pretty graphic monster-rape scenes), creating total pandemonium at the annual salmon festival.
Half man, half fish terrorize a small fishing village in this Roger Corman shocker.
Cast: Doug McClure, Ann Turkel, Vic Morrow, Cindy Weintraub
very fun and entertaining
I'd have given this 5 skulls if not for the terrible sound effects. The relentless screeching made me turn the volume down so far that I lost interest at parts. Other than that, it's great. You've got great old school visual fx, retro Americana time period aesthetics, a plot you can mostly ignore, and plenty of beautiful women. The monsters are actually trying to mate with chicks in this, so that's hot, but maybe not for everyone. A solid watch, maybe/maybe not a repeater depending on your tastes. Hope you enjoy!
Dumb, trashy, but/and entertaining B-movie.
Kind of a weird one but tbh a cool townie scifi monster romp. Interesting angle because of the female direction, the sexploitation is... more scientifically oriented?
Monster and gore fx are fun but uh, like, way too much rape
