A small coastal town is shaken by grisly murders credited to a legendary monster, murders the hermit-like lighthouse keeper may know something about.

An impressive independent film which has some shocking moments and a quality creature, the picture benefits from a good cast, including veteran actor Tremayne as the town doctor who also dabbles in scientific studies along with the young lead played by Sullivan, familiar to 1950s sci-fi fans from his roles in The Giant Gila Monster and Teenage Zombies.  Although there isn't a lot of depth to the film, it's well-made and captured my interest from the beginning through the final fade-out.
