Legendary bad-movie maven Larry Buchanan does a virtual remake of The She Creature (for reasons unknown) with this enjoyably silly outing. The story involves deranged stage mesmerist Dr. Basso (Les Tremayne), whose sessions with his pretty assistant Doreena (Pat Delaney) result in her regression into a hideous (or at least hideously-made) prehistoric sea monster, which he then manipulates into committing a series of gruesome murders at a remote resort -- all of which fulfill his earlier on-stage prophecies. One of Buchanan's many remakes of cheesy American International monster films, all of which made the originals seem positively brilliant by comparison, the film even features one of AIP's stock "heroes" -- the absolutely wooden Aron Kincaid, horrendously miscast as a psychiatrist.
