MONSTER (1979)

Generic forgettable title for a generic forgettable monster movie.  John Carradine shows up as a priest and pollution gets blamed for creating the giant, man-eating lake monster.  Besides garbage, people also blame sharks for the deaths!?  Yes, sharks in a little lake.  It just shows you the thought put into the script for this thing.  Some kids figure out it's a monster while all the adults are dumb.  Then Carradine burns a witch at the stake for some reason which seems like it belongs in another movie entirely and then some stuff blows up and it's all really drawn out and boring.  They have the nerve to put a "based on a true story" blurb before the movie.  I find it pretty unlikely that a big dinosaur/Loch-Ness monster-looking beast actually hangs out in South America munching on folks but maybe that's just me.  This might have been better if it was made back in the 50's when they wouldn't have been trying to emulate JAWS so much and failing so miserably.  A.K.A. MONSTROID(what the fuck is a monstroid???)

"An unholy horror!!":
