this is a pleasant enough little time waster, with the chutzpah to actually give us a pretty good look at the monster from time to time. in fact, we see it right away, in the first five minutes, which is a good way to get my attention.
now, it's not the greatest monster suit, but it's not bad at all. it would make a decent kaijin for Shocker, anyway.
Ted Baxter, even if that's not his real name in the movie.
I enjoy the movie for what it is, but there's a bit more talk than there needs to be. it could lose ten minutes and no one would ever be the wiser.
