Review: Humanoids from the Deep (1980)

This might be a bit out of the context, but I have seldom seen a movie with that much beautiful and sexy women in it. No wonder fish come up from the sea to fornicate with them…

“Oh, you scared me! I thought you were cleaning fish.”

A little fishing community gets haunted by dead bodies and accusations. First they find some dead dogs, then humans. The big town festival is soon approaching, and so are some dna-experimentated, gene-manipulated, horny sea monsters.

It’s a cheap Roger Corman movie, and yes there are monsters, blood and nude women. But this film is so well made in all departments I was hooked from the first kill. It has all the good drama, scares, effects, sleaze, score and a cool (but pretty standard at that time) story. It’s well directed and edited. This is a perfect late night b-movie. Highly recommended!

The quality of the movie is really great. It also contains sleazy deleted scenes, interviews about the making, a Roger Corman interview about the film, trailers and tv-spots.
