Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 58 ratings.
Make no mistake, this is not ?Gone with the Wind?; this is a ?B? movie.
That said?I want to point out that one of the trademark attributes of a B movie is two-dimensional characters who behave in a totally unrealistic manner. This movie features characters reaching well into two-and-a-half dimensions who behave in a way that is not totally unbelievable.
Yes there are moments, like when the hero hands his ?best girl? unprotected bottles of nitroglycerine and cautions her to be careful with them as they careen across a dirt field in a hotrod. But I can?t honestly say that I would do differently when faced with a giant Gila monster. The small town sheriff was very well written and acted (for a B picture remember), as was our crooning hero played by Don Sullivan?who stretched well beyond any dimensions ever offered by Presley or Avalon.
Before MTV movies were utilized to try to get scenes of people doing thjings while music played and The Giant Gila Monster was made to expose some of these new crazy tunes the kids all loved to dance to.
I don't like this film but I have to defend it because it was made in the Texas dessert and so was I.
There are no special effects. The monster seems to change size often once being bigger than several derailed train cars and a scene later only about half as big as a small barn. There is also no reason for the monster to be. There were no nuclear bomb test or metorites bringing cosmic rays to Earth. The narration suggest that it just got real big.
About the most terrifing thing the monster does is step on people or wreck their cars.
