This is a "B" horror film. As most people know, the "B" Horror films aren't the best, but they aren't the worst either. They have that special..something..you can't put your finger on - something that makes the film linger in your mind, make it memorable. This is one of those films.
Of course, it's a television childhood film for all of us from the New York area of the late 60's early 70's who were toddlers, children or tweens watching "Creature Feature"/ "Creature Double Feature" on Channel 5. I was a toddler with one heck of a memory and older male siblings who had the attention span of zip. They would turn on "Creature Feature", watch it for a few minutes and then LEAVE. Yes, leave me, the baby, in the room with this stuff playing. Me and my stuffed toys. (Parents take note!) This film was a staple to "Creature Feature" - and if my child hood memory serves me right -- they seemed to show this film every other week.
Why do I remember it? Well, the most memorable thing was the fungus. Lots and lots of fungus. Coming from everywhere, dripping down cave walls. Even as a toddler, I knew it wasn't "fungus" but it looked like "Mr. Bubble" whipped up and coming from everywhere. Ya know...I liked "Mr. Bubble". I enjoyed my bath time so watching this film was like watching an extended version of my "Mr. Bubble" tub baths on the television set and a bunch of folks trying to run away from it.
That's it folks. Nothing too exciting going on here, but nothing too crappy either. A lot of "Mr. Bubble". If you remember "Creature Double Feature", this is a must have for the sentimental value of your horror collection.
