Guest review by Jimmi Campkin.  This is probably the most complete Ed Wood film.  If you ignore the clunky dialogue, turn a blind eye to the glaring errors, and wade through the stock footage, there is some semblance of a coherent plot.

I'm not sure which Ed Wood is more entertaining, Plan 9 or this one.  Bela Lugosi's hammy performance is a hell of a lot of fun to watch but you also have to endure Tony McCoy and about nineteen hours of stock footage.

Tor Johnson is absolutely ridiculous in this movie.  Was it his idea or Wood's to spend the whole movie with his mouth open in a slack-jawed gape?  "Close your mouth, Tor, you'll drown!"  I love how it takes him a couple seconds before responding to Vornoff's whipping.  Also how Vornoff doesn't think that maybe, after a few shots to Tor's gut had no effect, he should aim at Tor's head.  It's not like he didn't have time to aim.

Other things of note:  Vornoff's screams at the end of the movie when he's struggling with the rubber octopus are exactly the same as the hunter's screams at the beginning of the movie; the reaction shots of Vornoff getting shot are pretty obviously done by standing Lugosi in front of a dark background and having him grimace and pull faces at the camera; Lt. Craig in the swamp fires shots in multiple directions even though there's only one stock-footage alligator; Kelton is even more of an idiot here than in Plan 9.
