One of the worst movies ever made, with bad lighting and cheap sets. The Gila Monster is barely visible, and for the great terror that it is supposed to be, it hardly does anything except stick its head through a window and step on a few toy cars. I challenge some young filmmaker to make a new version of it, in color, with a gigantic Gila Monster that flys and breathes fire (they can do that, right?) that destroy entire cities. Or would that be too much like Godzilla?
