This typical “drive-in” flick of the late 50s is actually fairly complicated that gets very interesting in the last 45 minutes. “Starring” the totally under-appreciated Beverly Garland (a scream queen of the 50s) and Tuesday Weld’s mom in PRETTY POISON in the 60s, this sly “gator” tale is walked through Cajun swamps into unknown realms where George MacReady and Lon Chaney, Jr. live every day. Thankfully, Ms. Garland (beautiful, talented, and finally on the color MY THREE SONS episodes) is SO believable in her character’s plight about her husband’s “condition” ..you’re sucked it.
Best performance – Ms. Garland. A 7 out of 10. The husband (who looks the same to me ..even when he’s “afllicted” is good), but the Mom, the servants, the HOUSE. It has all the ingredients that make “B” movies fascinating with a lot of help from Beverly Garland playing a lead Chara ..along with Bruce Bennett and various types. Recommended for it’s breed of cat.
