This is a most unusual film in that it provides the viewers with a completely new genre, a science-fiction Western. Now, sometimes disparate ingredients, no matter how much you like them, just don't mix. You might enjoy sour cream and you might just love licorice, but the two of them

together are a "yeeccchhh." THE BEAST OF HOLLOW MOUNTAIN is not a "yecchhh," but it isn't an "Oh Boy!" either. Madison is a rancher happily partnered with Rivas on a spread near Hollow Mountain. For years there have been tales about the swamp that surrounds the mountain, but nobody pays much mind.

They should. Filmed in Mexico, this film used some interesting special effects and a then-new animation process known as Regiscope. The story isn't much; Noriega is the heavy, Medina is the heroine, a couple of fights, some pale love scenes, etc. What piques the interest is the techniques and the

combination of the two styles. Since then, of course, there have been numerous combinations: disaster-comedies, horror-comedies, western-terror, and so on. With a better script and more money spent on production, this might have been a much-remembered movie.
