On some beach in Mexico, tourist Julie (Anne Kimbell) meets marine biologist Steve (Stuart Wade), who travels the sea in his one-man pedal-powered submarine, and the and Julie quickly fall in love. Thing is, on the beach Julie visits regularly, people tend to disappear. For some reason, Julie takes it upon herself to investigate and soon listens to - and believes - stories about a one-eyed sea monster told by the locals. When she goes on a diving expedition with Steve though, she fails to come up with anything.

Then Dave and his boss (Dick Pinner) have to leave for a fortnight, ant the local witchdoctor Tula (Inez Palange) has chosen Julie as her next human sacrifice to the sea god - which is of course the one-eyed sea monster the local whisper about and Julie was so anxious to find. Pablo (Wyott Ordung), the man who is supposed to sacrifice her though, just can't bring himself to really do her any harm and he warns Julie, but still she in the finale is cornered by the sea monster - when Steve in his mini sub, who has just found out the secret of the monster, arrives, drives his sub right into the monter's eye - which proves to be lethal to the monster - and gets the girl as a reward ...

 

Roger Corman's very first film as a producer - and it's of course miles away from being a masterpiece. Rather, it's a cheap but entertaining little flick with a very unconvincing monster (standard in 1950's drive-in monster movies) and a main attraction (the mini sub) which was an actual item and which Corman got to use for free because the company behind the sub saw the film as some sort of promotion ... which is why Monster from the Ocean Floor looks quite a bit more expensive than its meagre $12,000 budget - still, you will not mistake it for a big budget flick, that's for sure.

But enough trivia, the question remains: Is Monster from the Ocean Floor a good film?

Frankly, no. It's ok drive-in fodder that is at least entertaining though (if you are into that sort of thing), and that makes the most of the little money that was put into it, and it's of course a precursor of things to come for Corman - so any drive-in/grindhouse/trashfilm lover will want to see this one ... and if you don't expect anything great from it you will probably like it too.
