It Came from Beneath the Sea

2 years, 4 months ago at Nov 13 1:38
The acting and directing are a step-up from The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms in It Came from Beneath the Sea, but its Ray Harryhausen’s quirky effects work that’s the real charm here. Another run through “giant radiated creature destroys the city,” It Came from Beneath the Sea is another fast-moving piece of cinematic junk food.

View all It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955) reviews
While on a routine mission, Cmdr. Pete Mathews (Kenneth Tobey) runs into trouble when his submarine is nearly sunk by an unknown creature. Back at base in Pearl Harbor, Dr. John Carter (Donald Curtis) and Professor Lesley Joyce (Faith Domergue) identify the beast as a giant octopus from the nether reaches of Mindanao Deep, which has been awakened by nearby nuclear testing. Radioactive and monstrously huge, the rampaging leviathan is heading toward the North American Pacific Coast.

It Came from Beneath the Sea

“The acting and directing are a step-up from The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms in It Came from Beneath the Sea, but its Ray Harryhausen’s quirky effects work that’s the real charm here. Another run through “giant radiated creature destroys the city,” It Came from Beneath the Sea is another fast-moving piece of cinematic junk food. I don’t mean that as a criticism, I mean it as a sincere piece of positive criticism.   Ray Harryhausen’s films are memorable for his various creatures; no one watches them as challenging or deep-thinking cinematic exercises. They’re fun, they’re ridiculous, they’re equal parts fantasy and theme-park attraction. So if the plots are riddled with logical holes and the dialog is pure pulp, then they’re all the better. The more propulsive they are,” read more
