The movies weren't classics, the acting and scripts were average at best. So why would anyone be interested in these three films shot 45 years ago? If you know any of the people involved, if you are a movie fan, if you recognize the name of the director Roger Corman, then you will want this DVD.

Corman himself doesn't interact with anyone in a commentary, but does give some interesting background at the beginning of each film. He has no pretensions about the work, but tells us exactly what he was trying to do and what he had to go through to accomplish it. It's great to hear his views on all three films.

My favorite revelation is that Corman first thought of Allison Hayes (the 50 Foot Woman herself) as the lead in the THE LAST WOMAN ON EARTH, but after seeing Betsy Jones-Moreland in a play, decided to offer her the role instead.

The main delight here is THE LAST WOMAN ON EARTH. The movie itself is a low budget mishmosh. The glory on this DVD is the commentary by its stars Betsy Jones-Moreland and Antony Carbone. They are joined by Steve Latshaw and Fred Olen Ray. If you are tired of "educated" commentaries that build films up into things they were never meant to be - listen to the struggles of Moreland and Carbone. All situations were met with impunity. They frankly discuss co-star Edward Wain - who is in reality future Academy-Award winning screenwriter Robert Towne.

The movie is shown in widescreen (as is THE CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA) and for the first time in many years in Eastman color.

All the movies are fun (CREATURE has a commentary by Moreland, Carbone, and Latshaw).

Director-writer Joel M. Rapp does a commentary for the third film, a war movie called BATTLE OF BLOOD ISLAND.

This movie has it all! Sexy women, violence, secret agents, lost treasure, and a monster. What more could any viewer want? Or deserve?

The narrater of the film is also the secret agent of the movie. You think James Bond had cool stuff? Well this dude doesn't need Q. He makes his own stuff. He has a radio made of frankfurters and pickles! His insight is deeper than the sea itself. "The sun was beginning to set. I could tell because it was getting dark". That's observationm at it's finest. I'm glad he's on our side!

OK the movie is about escaping Cuba with a strongbox full of gold from the Cuban treasury. The crooks are trying to double-cross the Cubans as they escape. They try to scare the Cubans with stories of a monster, but there is a real monster!!!

The characters in this movie are entertaining and draw you in like a fish on the line. The head crook thinks he is Humprhey Bogart filming a remake of Key Largo. His main squeeze is a stacked blonde with enough sass for five golddiggers. There is another dude who communicates in animal sounds only, and another henchman talks somewhere between Popeye and Froggy from 'Our Gang'.

Now for the monster. He is an indescribable horror! Large bulging eyes (that resemble ping pong balls), giant claws for hands (Which resemble yard rakes from Sears Robuck), a huge mouth full of razor sharp teeth (the mouth cannot move or close), and a huge shaggy body (which resembles a cross between a fur coat and a guile suit worn by a US Marine Corps sniper). Simply horrifying.

This movie must be watched at least 10 times to fully appreciate it. You will see something different every time.

CREATURE FROM HAUNTED SEA isn't so bad when you consider that Roger Corman made it along with two other movies (The Last Woman On Earth, and Battle Of Blood Island) almost simultaneously in Puerta Rico! The casts are interchanchable. The storylines of the three couldn't be any more different from each other! CFHS is a silly, semi-interesting spy / monster flick with what resembles a pop-eyed, rubber-gloved christmas tree as the monster! Need I say more? I like it enough to watch it every once in a while. Check it out...

This zany little Roger Corman quickie turned up frequently on a local TV station's late, late, late show many years ago. Thinking "Creature from the Haunted Sea" was just another lousy low grade horror flick, I barely noticed it even as it flickered on the TV screen that I used, more often than not, as a night light.
But I did catch a scene in which a couple of skin-divers descended into the sea, and when I saw that one of them carried a toilet plunger, I silently mused a thoughtful "Hmm," and made a mental note to pay attention the next time it aired.
"Creature from the Haunted Sea" is a satire of adventure films as delightfully daffy as Corman's "Little Shop of Horrors," but with a more subtle approach. It's not a knee-slapper, but it is amusing, and well cast. There's Anthony Carbone doing a fiendishly silly homage to Humphrey Bogart, and future screenwriter Robert Towne as the earnest young hero. You even get a title song, a love theme containing the complete title, sung by the leading lady, Betsy Jones Moreland.
This is a movie that is probably best seen unexpectedly in the wee hours of an uneventful night. By morning, you may think it was just a silly dream.
