Monster from Green Hell (1957)
Director: Kenneth G. Crane
Main Stars: Jim Davis, Robert Griffon, Joel Fluellen, Barbara Turner
Storyline: In Africa wasps have been exposed to radiation turning them into massive monsters.
Review (Spoils): the silly government was testing on creatures with radiation and sending them into orbit. Well one of them got stuck there longer than planned and they lost track of it. What they did not know at the time was that it crashed into Central Africa and now the populace is in trouble. Strange occurrences are happening and people are dying. The bodies are being attacked and it is striking the nerves system of the body, animals are fleeing from Green Hell and lord behold they come across a larger than life wasp.
Monster movie time for this one, we have plastic looking wasps, a large crab and lots of running animals out of Green Hell. Most of the movie is a bunch of investigators and scientists making the track to and through Green Hell, we have poisonous water, animals battling animals, running animals, a wasp colony, and some explosions and of what is a monster movie in another country without a volcano?
Rating: Well this film is a B film at the most, the acting is horrible and the special effects are pretty damn cheap. But it is the 50s and monster movies were the thing and I have seen a hell of a lot worse than this. Giants wasps and a Misfits tune call for pints for this one.
