AHMP: Caltiki the Undying Monster
Subject: Caltiki the Undying Monster.
1959, Dir. Riccardo Freda.
Caltiki the Undying Monster was also released as Caltiki the Immortal Monster for those who cannot handle the sheer volume of terror conjured up by the word undying. The film revolves around atomic energy blasts from space reviving the age-old monster worshiped by voodoo loving natives. Basically, it looks a lot like The Blob but with some cool gore effects and voodoo. You can see the trailer right here. Anybody have any guesses as to what the fuck is going on at about 2:02? I encourage readers of both sexes to join me as I take a look at this poster.
Conclusion: Lots going on, but the levity of the tropical locale seems to lift the veil of horror a bit. Still, nicely done. B-.
