DIRECTOR EUGENE LOURIE'S CLASSIC MONSTER MOVIE ARRIVES ON BLU-RAY IN THIS ALL NEW RESTORATION!
I've always kind of considered THE GIANT BEHEMOTH (aka BEHEMOTH: THE SEA MONSTER) as the unloved younger stepbrother of THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS (which was also directed by Lourie). That being said, BEHEMOTH still holds a special place in my heart, as most monster movies do, and I am truly excited to see it newly remastered on Blu-ray disc!
Synopsis: As in his classic THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, director Eugene Lourie (GORGO) plunges us into a thrilling stomping ground, unleashing another Thunder Lizard to stomp on everything in sight. Alarming levels of radiation have infused the water, plants, and skies, and a radiated Paleosaurus rises from the ocean depths.
In its path: London. In its arsenal: a strength to topple buildings (KING KONG's Willis O'Brien contributes rampaging stop-motion effects), a stride that flattens cars, a flesh-searing radioactive ray and a ticked-off attitude. Left in ruins on land, humankind takes the fight to the beast's undersea realm, where a two-man submarine crew must ensure the torpedo they fire is dead-on. The first chance is all anyone gets with THE GIANT BEHEMOTH.
