Naive sheepfarmer Eddie (Richard Marion) wins big at the slotmachine ... and is almost immediately whisked off to a small former mining town that seems to be stuck in a time warp. He was promised a party, but he's only relieved of all his money in the local saloon then run out of town - but picked up by the kind-hearted professor Clemens (E. Kerrigan Prescott) and his assistant Mariposa (Karen Intenthron), who are conducting a scientific survey of the area ... and with Eddie's help they stumble upon a mutated sheep that somehow fits in with local legend uncomfortably well. So the professor and company do the only responsible thing and put the creature into an incubator while they try to figure out how to best study it ...

Meanwhile in town, Barnstable (Christopher Brooks), assistant of a big property mogul, tries to take over things and buy the land up one by one - but not without attracting the attention of mayor Silverdale (Stuart Lancaster), who wants to keep outsiders and thus progress out of town at any price - even if that price is that he has his assistant Phil (Steven Kent Browne) shooting himself in the shoulder and blaming it on Barnstable, claiming attempted murder. Seeing himself confronted with trumped up charges and a lynch mob, Barnstable makes a run for it and hides on the professor's premises. In the scuffle to re-arrest him, the incubator is destroyed, and the monster, by now grown to 8 feet, is set free to roam the countryside, wreaking havoc left and right, and killing a few locals in the process.

Professor Clemens and mayor Silverdale can agree on one thing, they want the monster captured, and alive too if possible - but they have so far never been eye to eye and agree on little else, so their coalition might be a quite combustible one ...

 

Now this one, while definitely no masterpiece, is fun to watch: On the surface, it's of course a monster movie, and the monster looks rather shabby at that and is given way too many close-ups - which is of course enough (unintentional) fun in itself, but the real amusement comes from the other narrative thread about the town to be taken over, which seems to be right out of a western movie (as is the film's general appearance to be sure) but is rich on colourful and fun characters and traces of political satire even. That said, neither direction nor cast are pure greatness, and the writing might be a tad wobbly at times, but it's a genre movie that's actually more entertaining than it has any right to be, and it's certain to strike a few chords with nostalgia afficionados like myself!
