Phantom from 10,000 Leagues is not a great movie. It's not even a great bad movie. It's really for cheesy 50s ARC/AIP SF completists only. The movie is below-average low-budget 50s dreck; talky and slow-moving, with few laughs, and very little 'face time' for the monster. The human drama is only slightly compelling and the infrequently spotted "phantom" looks like a big paper milk carton with teeth and claws. Or something. Buy the cool-looking poster instead. Makes Monster from the Ocean Floor seem breezy and action-packed in comparison. The only good thing you can say about this flick is that apparently the Milner brothers made enough cash off of it to finance their magnum opus, From Hell It Came. I wish THAT movie would come out on DVD!
Of course if the disc transfer and extras were good enough, 50s trashcore fans like us would have to get this for the library anyway, right? Unfortunately, this DVD is definitely subpar. To start off, the transfer is fair to mediocre at best. It really looks like it was mastered from an EP mode VHS tape, or recorded off-air from a UHF station, using a loop antenna. Very flat, very grainy/fuzzy; not as bad as a Madacy disc, but close. It's actually hard to tell if it's the print or the transfer that's to blame 'cause it's just so bad overall. And in a really tacky move, to say the least, the otherwise presumably G-rated disc includes several trailers featuring frontal nudity and softcore sex scenes. Not that junior is pestering you to see this movie or anything, but questionable nonetheless. But you're not going to buy this disc anyway; I guarantee you will be disappointed for the money. I would advise waiting for Image or Rhino to get around to putting this out unless you absolutely have to see it. (When I realized that Fred Olen Ray was involved in this DVD, it all started to make sense.)

Okay, I certainly had no illusions of grandeur when I popped this one into the DVD player, and neither should you. The Phantom From 10,000 Leagues? A more apt title would be the Guy in the Cheap Monster Suit From 20 Feet (or 0.00109730 Leagues, if you want to get technical)...
The film, directed by Dan Milner and presented by Samuel Z. Arkoff and James H. Nicholson (hence the incredibly cheapness of the entire affair) stars Kent Taylor, who also starred as Boston Blackie in the television series of the same name along with various cinematic wonders as The Crawling Hand (1963), Brides of Blood (1968), Satan's Sadists (1969), The Mighty Gorga (1969), and Brain of Blood (1972). The film also stars Cathy Downs, who later appeared in films like The She Creature (1956), The Amazing Colossal Man (1957), and Missile to the Moon (1958), Michael Whalen (who also appeared with Ms. Downs in Missile to the Moon, Rodney Bell, Phillip Pine, Vivi Janess, and Pierce Lyden as Andy, the janitor.
The film opens with a fisherman casting a net off a small dingy, I guess, to catch some fish. Underneath the boat we see a man in a somewhat elaborate, yet highly unresponsive, monster suit. He pushes some on the bottom of the boat, and this causes the man to let out a feeble yell and fall into the water. The creature then proceeds to...the best way I could describe this is to say the creature began having relationship with the man in the water. I suppose it was meant to look like it was attacking the fisherman, but it surely didn't...anyway, the next scene shows the fisherman's corpse and his dingy on the beach, and we meet out main character, Dr. Ted Stevens (Taylor), or, as he's calling himself Ted Baxter, for reasons of his own for now, discovers the body.

Well, I have to admit I was born in 1949. I V=A=G=U=E=L=Y remember watching this as part of a triple-feature
back in the day when the theaters without STEREO-sound made up for it with five cartoons; an A-feature; a B-
feature; and a C-flick that sucked... horribly.
THIS movie is the latter.
The movie poster is a PAINTING, hint #1.
The TITLE would suggest a DEEP-SEA monster---the attacks are about 100-yards/meters from shoreline.
The title-creature is a man in a deep-sea-diving suit with a laughable helmet-mask.
It appeared to me that the same one-person boxy-canoe is re-used again and again... and is the one on the shore.
Five people are "horribly disfigured by radiation-burns.
The longest 79-minutes I ever sat through... PERFECT... for the Drive-In and a hot-babe... Cheese-fest. For avid/
rabid collectors ONLY. Bite me!

This is essentially a no star movie that gets one star from being a 50's atomic age movie and because you have to give it one star. The other star is for the quality of the DVD which is very good. You get a trailer with brief commentary by Joe Dante.

This should have been released as a two movie DVD just like with MGM's Midnite Movie Collection. It was released then with The Beast with 1,000,000 Eyes. Regardless, 50's sci-fi fans are grateful for Kino Lorber releasing a blu-ray of this terrible movie. As is, it's hard to recommend buying it although many people like myself will buy it anyway just because it falls into the category of 50's science fiction and it's an early AIP movie despite being released as American Releasing Corporation.

Kent Taylor stars as Ted Stevens/Baxter in this movie as an oceanographer/author who is investigating deaths off the coast of California. The acting is competent and could have been worse.

The plot centers around a deposit of uranium just off the coast that is mutating creatures and sinking ships. The movie never really makes clear a number of things. We are not sure about which nation is involved in the subplot. We never know if the creature(phantom) was created by the uranium or by Professor King's experiments nor is it clear how the uranium got there.. Professor Kings experiments are never completely explained and the secretary's motivations are never really explained either. The Phantom is not really a phantom as it is very easily scene and makes no effort to disguise itself. As far as 10,000 Leagues goes (30,000) miles, it's more like the Phantom from 50 feet. The only other creature we see is a mutated turtle. The character of George is just pathetic.
