Editorial Reviews

MONSTER FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR: Reports that a Mexican fishing village is terrorized by a creature that lives in the cove draw the attention of a scientist (Stuart Wade) with a one-man submarine and a beautiful tourist (Anne Kimbell), who descends into the dark waters to investigate. Hollywood's legendary maverick Roger Corman made his monster-movie debut as producer of this ultra-low-budget, eerie fright flick. RT 65 min,B&W,1954,Not Rated,1.33:1/4x3 SERPENT ISLAND:On the trail of a million-dollar gold treasure, an Eastern gal (Mary Munday) hires a California dockside bum (Sonny Tufts) to accompany her to the Caribbean where one of her ancestors reportedly buried the booty. Soon the jungles are echoing with the sound of voodoo drums, the locals are licking their native chops and there are snakes on a plain! Packed with flubs, stock footage--and Sonny Tufts. If laughter were food, this would be a full-course meal for Worst Films connoisseurs! (Filmed in 16mm Kodachrome on a $18,000 budget!)

Customer Reviews

The thrills are -- well -- nil.
David E. Gregson
Even so, despite the silliness those moments have an eeriness to them.
Celia DLF
Not worth more than 10 bucks for the double feature.

I watched "Creepy Creature Double Feature Vol. 2" before watching "Creepy Creature Double Feature Vol. 1." I found "Creepy Creature Double Feature Vol. 2" to be quite enjoyable despite the low-budget nature of the two films it contains. Thus, my expectations for "Creepy Creature Double Feature Vol. 1," which features two more low-budget films, were higher than they might otherwise have been.

Alas, "Creepy Creature Double Feature Vol. 1" failed to meet my heightened expectations. In fact, it failed even to meet the more meager expectations I would have had if I had not watched "Creepy Creature Double Feature Vol. 2" first. "Monster from the Ocean Floor," while crisp and sharp in this black-and-white transfer, offers little plot-wise, and is so simplistic that even its 65-minute run time seems too long for the story line. Other than a brief earlier cameo, the monster itself does not even appear until--literally--five minutes before the movie ends, and the few minutes of its lame, blurry, not-at-all-menacing tentacle-waving is a few minutes of film wasted. The production values are pretty good, the sound is okay (although some of the characters have completely different voices in different scenes), and the cast members are reasonably likeable. But their performances do little to redeem "Monster from the Ocean Floor." It's not a horrible movie, but its not one worth watching again in the future.

As for "Serpent Island"--the less said about it, the better. It's awful, just awful.

I'm surprised Volumes 1 and 2 of the "Creepy Creature Double Feature" series are so different from each other. I expected roughly equivalent levels of quality, but such is not the case. I rated Volume 2 with five stars for its value, and for the fact that its two movies are not too bad at all. I found Volume 1, however, to be a waste of time and money.

CREEPY CREATURE DOUBLE FEATURE. VOLUME 1
MONSTER FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR/SERPENT ISLAND
Another excellent release from the good guys at VCI that pleases way more than it should. Contained herein are absolutely gorgeous transfers of both films, but there is much more to delight any Monster Kid.

THE MONSTER FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR:
The thing that brings this release up to first class status is the way Tom Weaver, Grand Sultan of `50s Sci Fi cinema, guides us through the history of this film with his entertaining and happily lengthy conversation with Roger Corman.
Then there is the trivia extra. Before dispatching it, I at first took this to be a throwaway. It is actually another half hour of extremely interesting info on the film with Mr. Weaver's very pleasant and chummy voice hosting. His astute observation confirms the importance of MONSTER FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR.
I would have never in a million years realized that there are so many Firsts connected with this film! There are so many to list and I don't want to spoil anyone's listening to this wonderful commentary, but I will point out the obvious one that this is Corman's first monster film. This is only one of many items that originated with this tiny little film.
Oh yes, I should also mention that this DVD also contains some deleted footage and Tom even tells you where you can see color photos of the mini sub used in the film.

SERPENT ISLAND
Oh well, you can't win them all! Basically this film is 62 minutes of a gin soaked Sonny Tufts sucking in his gut under a skipper's hat. I actually did have some fun with the film by noticing all the bad edits and miss-matched shots of stock footage and stocky Sonny Tufts. There is a moth eaten snake and some voodoo too.

Who would have thought it possible that outtakes from The Monster from the Ocean Floor would find their way to a DVD? The whole movie looks like an outtake. But if you're in the mood to torture yourself you'll be happy to know this VCI release is terrific. Image quality is crisp and there's a good telephone interview with Roger Corman talking about the film. As for Serpent Island, since it was filmed in 16mm, this is the best print you'll ever find, done from a Medalion TV print. Incidentally, Serpent Island was photographed by Bert I. Gordon. Please know he was just as good a photographer as he was a special effects technician. Maybe better!

You either like bad 50's movies,or you don't. Sometimes they can be entertaining. Not worth more than 10 bucks for the double feature.

Time for a late night creature feature, so get a blanket, some popcorn, turn out the lights and sit back and watch the movie(s)

I had never seen SERPENT ISLAND prior to this so I took a chance. As it turns out, SERPENT ISLAND barely qualifies as a film, much less a creature feature. Technically speaking, yes, it does have a python in it towards the end. (Albeit with its poor mouth rubber-banded shut half the time in order to keep the actors from getting accidentally bitten!) Other than that it's a routine (and rather boring) "search for hidden treasure" potboiler. Lots of stock & shot silent footage with voice over narration by our stalwart star, that sun-baked stallion of the sea, Sonny (Cat-Women of The Moon) Tufts helps to pad out the scant 62 minute runtime. Even so, I predict you'll be checking your watch more than once during this thing. BTW... The director of photography was none other than Bert I. Gordon himself.

A middle-aged secretary from Scranton, PA, (milky-skinned redhead Rosalind Hayes), has a family heirloom treasure map. Every generation or so someone in the family has tried for the treasure, with no luck. She's decided it's her turn: she's saved $2000 and has six weeks' worth of vacation time. On a friend's recommendation (some friend!), she hires former Marine Engineer turned drunken harbor tramp Sonny Tufts to be her guide, (good thinkin' honey - NOT!), for a flat fee of $50/day plus a percentage of the treasure. Sonny's boat is a small, beat up POS, so she has to engage the services of one Kirk Ellis (Tom Monroe) who Captains a ship big enough to make the voyage. She arranges to have Sonny hired on as a crew member. Of course, the two guys can't stand each other and both want the treasure & the girl, so it's gonna be one long, ugly voyage. Where's the treasure, you ask? Haiti. Where do Sonny & Capt. Ellis reside? San Pedro, CA!
