Good Grade B '50s sci-fi flick. An atomic size octopus from the deepest realms of the Pacific threatens the world. Seeking adequate levels of food supply, not excluding humans, the creature attacks San Francisco. The real star of this movie is the razzle-dazzle special effects of Ray Harryhausen. The quality of the stop-motion animation exceeds the constraints of the B&W photography and the modest budget. The first part of the film tells of the mysterious ship sinking and other unexplained marine mayhem caused by the great sea beast. Navy Captain Pete Mathews (Kenneth Tobey) and two expert marine-biologists, John Carter (Donald Curtis) and Lesley Joyce (Faith Domergue), work around the clock tracking down clues to identify the source of the mysterious events at sea. The simple plot moves right along and doesn't waste time. As seems obligatory in many '50s sci-fi flicks, the heroes endure the "I'm telling you, there's a monster!" phase followed by the "Yeah, right!" response from the authorities. Happily, that particular cliche is kept to a minimum. Things really start to go snap, crackle, and pop as the monstrous octopus tries to pull itself up on the Golden Gate Bridge. And check out the giant eye that opens as the submarine approaches the submerged creature in the San Francisco harbor. This is solid Saturday afternoon at the movies fun for 12 year-olds of all ages. They really don't make them like this anymore.

It Came from Beneath the Sea(Released in July/55),I had not seen since the 1960s,when it was a staple of TV fare.Of course when it has been that long,it is the outstanding moments you recall only,like the giant octopus itself and it grabbing on to the Golden gate bridge,etc.But watching it after all those years I kind of re-discovered the film all over again.It actually has a decent plot for a B picture,which stars lead Kenneth Toby(The Thing) and Faith Domergue(This Island Earth).There is a sub plot that is strictly adult(that I didn't recall),as when the submariner says to the captain that he was concerned about the effect of radiation and ones ability to have children,or the Captains own battle of the sexes with this"new breed of woman".Even so the movie still remains stuck in its' B picture roots,despite Harryhausens wonderful background work.
The plot is relatively simple.An atomic powered sub commanded by Capt.Pete Matthews(Toby) is patrolling the western Pacific area when it is suddenly followed by a huge object unknown.Eventually the unknown locks the sub in a vice like grip.After more than a few tries to get the sub going backwards and/or forwards,the Captain calls for them to surface.It does the trick and a diving crew upon inspection of the hull finds a huge mass stuck in one of the steering vents.They head to Pearl Harbour for repairs and the piece of material is examined by two experts,one being marine biologist Lesley Joyce(Domergue).
The conclusion seems to be that the substance jammed in the sub belongs to a much bigger creature,a giant octopus.It is theorized that this creature grew to such immense proportions due to Atomic testing around the Marshall Islands.The theory is expounded in detail to the military who have a hard time believing what they have heard.

You have to be patient with this one because it really does improve. The beginning has a submarine encountering something powerful and this serves at getting our interest. Then we have a long period where everyone is trying to figure out what has happened and the usual non-believers that end up holding things. Everything is presented very matter of fact instead of being dramatic and this tends to give the film a very dry, almost unexciting feel in the middle. Fortunately, the octupus comes to San Francisco and all hell breaks loose as the giant monster rips a gap in the golden gate bridge, terrorizes a freight yard and a giant clock. The story is not as good as say Earth vs. the flying saucers or Twenty million miles to earth, but the special effects are fantastic. Harryhausen has the creature's tentacles move in a slow, very deliberate manner that tends to really add realism to the monster's attack. So put this one in then stop it after about fifty minutes, then make your popcorn and go sit back down and enjoy the fantastic finale.

Modern technology and super low 'Zon pricing combine to make this a welcome addition to your HARRYHAUSEN Chronicles. Yes, the modern technology is the remote with its 'fast forward'feature. You can plow through the interminable talking heads , all the while supplying your own dialog from all the times you saw it on commercial TV (and didn't we SCOUR the TV guides, hoping against hope, in those days?). My favorite shot has to be the poor people pulped by the Giantentacle as they foolishly try to flee along Battery Street! Remember Forry's homage to Ray from 'Famous Monsters of Filmland'-long about Issue #5? He'd recommended the cinemagician to a guy producing a monster flick who gulped, "He charges ten thousand dollars a tentacle!" No wonder "IT" had only five! So buy it already for ten QUID!
