One of my all-time favorite horror films, Humanoids From the Deep is the Roger Corman produced film about a small fishing community being overrun by fast evolving frog monsters from the sea that come up and tear people apart, not to mention rape the young, buxom naked women (the nudity in this film is phenomenal). It's up to a couple of locals (including the late Doug McClure) and scientist (Ann Turkel) whose company played a role in creating the creatures, to stop them once and for all. Feminist director Barbara Peters (albeit with the help and guidance of Corman) manages to direct a fun and engaging graphically violent monster movie. The film serves as some heavy-handed irony though, as Peters had originally intended to present an allegorical feministic approach towards the film, which was completely lost in translation as its audience was completely divided up between fans who never saw the message and haters who were incredibly offended by this rather dark film. The film never loses sight of this dark tone, keeping it all the way through the blood-splattering climax to the even bloodier and grim ending. The gore effects and deaths are great, as are the monster suits, which are clearly man-worn costumes, but fun nonetheless. The film also features the late, great Vic Morrow in a role as a local yokel. Overall, Humanoids From the Deep is a rare and fun treat that many horror enthusiasts should see, but good luck though. The DVD is VERY hard to come by, and very expensive. I consider myself very lucky to own this film again Great film, though.
this is a dvd i wanted for quite some time the plot of this in short is there's a fish canery experimenting on making salmon bigger but things go wrong some escape and grow into human sized creatures and attack a local town.if you like roger cormen's movies get this one for your collection.
this one of cormans best its an awesome date/drive-in/party movie BUT IS IT WORTH THW HIGH PRICE THAT SALERS ARE ASKING FOR NO!!!!!!! NO MOVIE IS IF YOU CANT GET THIS FOE UNDER 20.00$ THEN WAITE UNTILL IT GETS A NEW RELESE ON DVD BUT DONT PAY OVER 20.00 FOR IT ITS GOOD BUT NOT THAT GOOD
This is one of the better origional classic horror films. Very hard to find hopefully they will re-release it on DVD soon. Untill then Im glad I found a new factory sealed copy.
The movie is good scary fun and humorous at the same time that can only be done by Roger Corman of course!
I HAD to buy it because it was being sold at a very very low price of about 9 dollars, it's a very hard to find DVD movie and out of print so that makes it even better.
