Reptilicus, 1961 - ★★½

..::Selection for Hoop-tober 2.o Horror Fest::..
Decades before Jurassic Park grew dinosaurs, in a Copenhagen aquarium a professor had an earlier brainstorm of growing an amphibious reptile from a frozen tail. Big mistake as it breaks free, leading to a cat and mouse chase by the Danish military, and the possibility that any piece blown off the monster could grow into another one.

Because I wanted films I've never seen before, the hardest task of this years Hoop-tober for me is finding 5 suitably obscure monster movies. The one I viewed was badly dubbed in English (they did originally film an Eng lang version but AIP overdubbed with American accents). Its no Godzilla (or Gorgo for that matter) but its still a psychotronic b-movie treat, that sadly never got the mst3k treatment it deserved.
