THE ALLIGATOR PEOPLE (1959)
Probably the coolest thing about this movie is Lon Chaney Jr.'s performance as a hook-handed, swamp-dwelling molester. It's gotta be one of Chaney's sleaziest performances since he almost rapes the female lead(Beverly Garland) until ol' scaly-face breaks up his attempt at love-making. Besides that you also get an alligator-man(The title sorta lies since there is really only one full-blown alligator person. Everyone else just has some scaly skin-problems) who wears pants but for some reason never chomps anyone's head off but enjoys wrestling real alligators. A pretty groovy 50's monster flick just for the ridiculous monster.
