If this movie hadnít cheaped-out on its monster, it might have had a chance at being at least somewhat well-regarded. A pair of newlyweds head to a Greek island to try to find the manís sister, whoís gone incommunicado for several months. They find her, along with James Earl Jones and a just-awakened sea monster who lives in an underwater cave and likes to chow down on women. The sea monster looks as if itís made of paper mache, James Earl Jones refuses to use a knife to eat a melon, and Jose Ferrer collects yet another paycheck. For the psychotronically-inclined, this is absolute gold.

Treasure hunters on a tiny Greek island accidentally unleash an ancient, virgin-chomping sea monster from an underwater cave it's been sealed up in since the Middle Ages. The story is complete nonsense, the acting was pretty bad, and the gore quotient was nil. Only 80 minutes long but it felt like it was twice that.
Fortunately, all of the female cast members were hot as hell and since the film took place in the sunny Mediterranean, none of them were wearing a whole hell of a lot.
If you do make the mistake of buying this movie (and I am not for a moment suggesting that you do), just fast-forward to the scene where Lydia ("Too Close For Comfort") Cornell practices some aerobics on the beach, with plenty of loving close-up shots. You'll thank me later.
