 :twirl:Frankly, I found this movie very entertaining as Hank (Russell Johnson of Gilligan's Island Fame) expertly advises his way as a handyman amongst all these klutzy brilliant scientists.  The hot babe almost falls for him before Hank is heroically killed by the crab monsters (which is heroic, Hank or the Cab Monsters, you be the judge).
Scientists of such brilliance keep falling into new holes that weren't in existence the night before.  How can that happen?  The clever, pesky crustaceans keep digging and exploding these holes to pin the scientists onto a smaller island land mass. 
Why?  They want to kill the brilliant crew, assume their total knowledge and proceed to conquer ze vurld.  No, I made that up, they are not German crabs.  Still, they are a rather ambitious bunch (maybe two-three) of crabs.  Overall, it is a load of laughs if not thrills and I watch it every chance I get.

David Arvedon played the role of Hoolar The Giant Crab in this movie.  He also played Hoolar The Giant Crab in the recent movie, land of the lost.  He looks like a giant crab.  He is a beached whale.  He is nothing but a big fat ugly whale.

As a young un' in the early to mid 70's, I used to see this movie a lot on WNEW 5's Creature Features showcase at 8 PM every Saturday night. Some of you may remember this show, and Lou Steele aka "The Creep" doing little segments in-between the movie. Steele came back briefly to host CF in 1979 in a midnight triple feature that sadly, wasn't enough to save the show when it tanked in 1980.

As owner of this quote in my earlier days here atBadmovies, I'll add a bit more to it.

I too enjoyed this movie, and as a young kid, the human-like eyes on the crab used to scare me because I knew crabs didn't look like that. But now I realize that the reason was because the crab was devouring humans and their intellect, and began showing such features.

Funny, the things you look back on and how they affected you at the time.  BounceGiggle   B-movies are either hit-or-miss, but one things for sure, you never forget some of em'!
