ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS / Los Altos Productions - 1957

It's time for a redo of a classic fifties sci-fi monster post with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. I actually saw this decent little Corman entry at the theater at the time and it's still lots of fun to watch, comes in at only 62 minutes!

Eegah!! sent over a soundclip for us to dig, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the burrito holder, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's some sound from... ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS!

Our crew members show up on the shores of a Bikini Atoll to investigate the disappearance of the prior scientific party, they set up shop...

As they wave goodbye to the crew of the departing sea plane, it mysteriously blows the Hell up two seconds later!

Cool set of shots of our hapless characters, now, they've lost radio communication and there's been a massive earthquake! I love knotty pine walls. And, Richard Garland looks like Fred!

Things ain't goin' that great, now, there's a big hole in the wall and Jules just got his hand pinched off by a Crab Monster!!

Oh, hey Beach, whazzup?.. Huh, what?!.. Like, whut the Hell's the matter, dude?!!!

Actually, he's needed to run the monster!

They manage to get their hands on dinner, and, they have a nice photo to scare everyone with!

They come up with a death ray for defense so let Martha install it in the cave! Filmed inside Bronson Caves, natcherly.

Now it's time for this poor sap to get his head pinched off! At the time, this seemed over the top for a kid of 10, it was pretty shocking.

Then, the island crumbles into the sea from earthquakes and the big bully comes out of the water to finish off the puny humans!!
