| "I Feel Her Presence, Even Now!"...
Psychic / occult practitioner / carnival performer, Dr. Carlo Lombardi (Chester Morris) has been dabbling in hypnosis and age regression with grim, tragic results. It appears that something has been coming out of the sea and killing the locals. Lombardi's cohort, Andrea (Marla English) is able to go into deep trances, allegedly going back to some primordial state. Is she somehow responsible for a string of terrible deaths? THE SHE-CREATURE is a fairly dull affair, w/ the monster making only a few, scant appearances in her own movie! Said monster's costume is ludicrous, but gets points for originality. Lombardi's ultra-serious, cantankerous manner is amusing. He looks like he could either fly apart, or lift off and sail heavenward at any moment! For her part, the beautiful Ms. English plays her role as a suffering "slave" of her "master", w/ as much aplomb as possible, considering the subject matter. Co-stars the unmistakable Tom Conway as the greed-driven promoter, Timothy Chappel. Overall, worth a watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon. BONUS POINTS FOR: Spotting the rubber band around the poor dog's mouth to make him look mean! Grrr! I'd be mad too!...
