Julie, an American on vacation in Mexico, spots a giant, one-eyed amoeba rising from the ocean, but when she tries to tell the authorities, no one believes her. She finally teams up with a marine biologist in an attempt to destroy it.
The mini submarine in the movie is a Aerojet General. This is a electric mini sub that was designed for the Navy's demolition teams. Roger Corman was able to use it for free for the movie because the designers wanted the publicity. They had hopes that the public would see it and want one for recreational activities.
Why do you suppose there were no reports of this thing until 1946? What could have happened then to start the story?
Steve Dunning: 1946? Well that's when the Bikini underwater expeirments were set off, maybe that started something.
When Julie first encounters Steve in his mini submarine they are both in the water. Julie gets out of the water and runs onto the beach. Steve runs up behind her. The mini sub is also on the beach. How'd the sub get out of the water?
