I like to stay informed as the next person, but the other night after dinner I just couldn’t bring myself to enduring the nightly news again. The endless cycles of tragedy, chaos, and terribly disturbing state of the world these days, and chose to retreat into the comfort zone of those Saturday creature feature films of my youth.
I’ve always liked those cheesy 50’s 60’s and even 70’s Sci Fi monster flicks!
I recently discovered the Comet T.V. network, that shows these pretty much 24/7.
I watched a beautifully shot, yet poorly written story called “The Curse of the Swamp Creature ” from ’66. You can never go wrong with an evil mad scientist as the foil in my book, and this didn’t disappoint, and the acting actually wasn’t half bad for what they had to work with.
Best line of the movie? “Get your creature outta my swamp!” Priceless.
