The CONELRAD 100 of Atomic Films

TITLE: THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS

THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS
DIRECTOR: Eugene Lourie
YEAR: 1953

An atomic test in the Arctic Circle blasts free a gigantic, prehistoric "rhedosaurus" that immediately starts creeping towards New York (its ancestral homeland). The monster's Manhattan stomping scenes are a Ray Harryhausen extra- vaganza of special effects. Sharpshooter Lee Van Cleef kills the Beast at Coney Island using radioactive ammunition. Director Lourie recycled the Beast premise in THE GIANT BEHEMOTH (1959) and GORGO (1961).
