BEHEMOTH, THE SEA MONSTER


BEHEMOTH, THE SEA MONSTER
(vt The Giant Behemoth US)
   Film (1959). Diamond/Allied Artists. Dir Douglas Hickox, Eugene Lourie, starring Gene Evans, Andre Morell, Jack MacGowran, Leigh Madison. Screenplay Lourie. 80 mins, cut to 72 mins. B/w.
   Lourie made several MONSTER MOVIES during his career, including The BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS (1953), of which BTSM - his least successful - is a partial remake. The story is the usual one - a prehistoric reptile is revived by atomic radiation and immediately sets out to demolish the nearest city, in this case London. There is a good build-up of suspense in some sequences but, despite the presence of the elderly Willis H. O'BRIEN (designer of the original KING KONG) on the team, the very low budget severely restricted the scope of the effects.
