A nice little gem from Denmark
I recently watched Reptilicus for the first time and found it quite enjoyable, despite the low budget and cheap looking monster.

A frozen tail of a prehistoric monster is found in Denmark and is brought to a laboratory in Copenhagen to be studied. It has to be kept frozen at all times but one night, a scientist who has stayed behind to do some work does not shut the door properly and falls asleep. As a result of this, the tail thaws out and grows into a giant prehistoric reptile and escapes from the lab, kills the scientist and another man in the building and goes on the rampage in Copenhagen. The military try all they can to kill it but fail. It is eventually frozen to death.

The monster in this movie is a rubber puppet due to the low budget. It looks more funny than scary. Despite this, the movie is beautifully shot in colour.

This movie is a must for bad movie and sci fi fans. Great fun.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
