This horror picture was completed for less than $30,000. But when it comes to 50s monster movies, it’s often the cheaper, the better. Maybe better isn’t quite the word for it.
The Monster Of Piedras Blancas (1959) is cheap, somewhat gory and a whole lotta fun. It was clearly inspired by The Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954). And Olive Films is bringing it to Blu-ray in September. Can’t wait.
