HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP (R) NEW WORLD PICTURES (1980)
Starring: Doug McClure, Ann Turker, Vic Morrow, Cindy Weintraub, Anthony Pena & more.
HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP is one of Horror master Roger Corman's classic films from the 80's. Roger Corman has done some killer Horror picks in the past like BLOOD FEAST & 2000 MANIACS. This pick takes things in a slightly different direction. A scientific experiment goes wrong and turns out some horrific mutations that are half man half fish creatures. The creatures are not what you think though. They look more like a poor mans version of the SWAMP THING mixed with SIGMUND & THE SEA MONSTERS. The creatures start to terrorize a small town and then mate with all the young hot women of the town. The film comes off as being more campy than scary. There is very few death scenes and are no where near as bloody or gory as what we are used to from the master of gore. From what I've read about this film, Roger Corman wanted to add lots more gore and nudity, but the studio cut most of it out. Even though this is not one of Corman's best flicks, it's still a coo film and I would have loved to seen the version that Roger Corman wanted to make! I'm sure it would have been much gorier and more violent.
