Alternate Versions

The Japanese DVD under the title "Monster (Humanoids From The Deep)" is the full uncut version including the shot of a man having his head ripped off. It is presented in 1.85:1 widescreen (no anamorphic enhancement though) and looks much better than the slightly cut region 1 DVD. See more »

Oh man, was this one fun to watch. One of the reasons some bad films are viewable is because you can sense how much fun everyone had making this film. This is such a case. It is real bad. The actors play it straight and that only adds to the fun with all the ridiculous goings-on. And you can't beat this logic: these oversized man/salmon creatures are coming up on land reeking havoc. So how does Doug McClure intend to catch these things? He heads to his boat and out to sea armed only with a fishing pole. I was sold. If you watch to laugh rather than be scared, you'll have fun with this one.
