The Navy vs. the Night Monsters 2010 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This is a low budget sci-fi horror film that made the drive-in rounds back in the sixties. Mamie Van Doren is actually top billed. It concerns a Navy base in the south seas that finds itself fighting off acid-spewing tree monsters that move around on their roots and only at night. A scientific expedition in Antartica accidentally sent specimans of a life form they discovered to the base resulting in these “Day of the Triffids” knock-offs. Mamie is a nurse on the base and provides the eye candy. The “night monsters” seek human prey of course and they find it. Originally, the film contained a few scenes of fairly gory deaths that were surprising for the time and these were edited out in later prints. At this writing, I was unable to find out if Music Video Distribution was releasing a restored and uncut version. This would be the ideal way to release this film as it could be fun for those who like these old drive-in features and of course for those who know that Mamie Van Doren was a well-known sex kitten back in the 5o’s. If it’s uncut and restored, I’d love to see it again. It is what it is and should be enjoyed that way.
