With thoughts of the popularity of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON creeping about in the backs of their minds, the producers of this film came up with a similar monster, part man and part crustacean, which was played by producer Jack Kevan in a monster suit. The plot concerns a

superstitious lighthouse keeper named Sturges (John Harmon), who leaves food for the beast--which is said to live in a nearby cave--as an appeasement. Although most of the other inhabitants of the area think he's crazy, Sturges worries that the monster might go after his beautiful teenage daughter

(Jeanne Carmen). When a couple of fisherman turn up on the beach with their heads torn off (the creature lives off blood), the locals finally sit up and take notice. A distinctly subpar effort, THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS' only item of interest is the monster suit, which has a face like a wild

boar, the body of a lobster, and hands stolen from the costumes of THE MOLE PEOPLE (1956). Back in 1959, this film won the Shock Award of the Year from Monster Magazine.
