The Crater Lake Monster (1977)

The Crater Lake Monster (1977)

Directed by: William R. Stromberg

Starring: Richard Cardella, Glen Roberts, Mark Siegel

I loooove monster movies. Any kind of monster, really, so long as it gets out of control and eats/disintegrates/breaks the back of innocent townsfolk. There’s just something so wholesome and nice about that concept.

A meteorite FROM SPACE falls into Crater Lake, and soon locals find themselves getting eaten by a giant Loch Ness Monster type monster. Only… it’s not in Loch Ness. A professor and his team (or something like that) hunt down the monster and blow it up, despite the fact that it’s an alien dinosaur, which makes it pretty much the coolest thing ever.

There’s only one nice thing I can say about this movie, and that’s that the monster itself is actually pretty neat. Everything else is exactly like what you’d expect from a shitty 70’s horror movie. It wasn’t even remarkable enough for anything else to stand out in my mind. OH WELL!

    I just watched this on Netflix and started a draft for a review! Ha! Cardella and Stromberg never did anything else after this. Now you know why. Great post!
