Sunday Cinema – “The Monster of Piedras Blancas”

 

Piedras

 

July is usually a “tent pole” month for movie studios. Many blockbusters are released in the middle of summer to cash in on the lucrative Fourth of July holiday. This month we decided to share some “mockbusters”, films that are often blatant rip-offs of real blockbuster movies to cash in on their popularity.

Probably one of the earliest versions of a “mockbuster”, this film is a rip-off of the popular Universal Pictures horror that was “The Creature from the Black Lagoon”. The titles are similar (“Piedras Blancas” roughly translates to “White Stones” or “White Pebbles”) as well as the look/origin of the monsters as well (both are humanoid “gill men” with similar features) due to the fact that the designer had designed suits for both movies.

A lowly lighthouse keeper trying to keep his teen daughter safe, offers food to a mysterious creature that lives in a cave along the shore. Locals think him crazy until bodies begin to appear on the beach, ravaged by something non-human…

Someone posted the entire schlock-fest online for all to enjoy…
