Humanoids From the Deep (1980) Humanoids
I admit I found this to be a lot of fun back when I first went to see it in a theater 30 years ago. It seemed to break a lot of boundaries from my perspective, stuff I never imagined that filmmakers would dare do - yet there it was on screen. Word spread among young guys and male teens back then and this was a modest hit for Roger Corman's New World Pictures. Corman, as in Galaxy of Terror, championed rape scenes for the exploitation aspect.

The proposition here is that mutated fish - mutated into humanoid lifeforms due to experimental growth hormones by meddling humans - would hunt down and rape female humans in order to propagate the new species. It all takes place at a small fishing village locale; young women are found raped; dogs are killed; and racial tensions between whites and Indians are escalated due to the happenings.

Doug McClure, fresh from a successful row of sf pictures (starting with The Land That Time Forgot in '75), plays the nominal hero; Ann Turkel (Ravagers '79) is the visiting scientist who had warned her associates about what would happen; and Vic Morrow (Twilight Zone the Movie) is great as usual as the local head bigot and loudmouth.

This has several scenes (some of which were filmed after principal photography) of naked young women being chased by ugly creatures and culminates with an exciting all-out attack by many of the monsters during a carnival. In-between, it's on the slow side, with minimal tension, but it's impressive that there were only 3 monster suits, yet it's conveyed that there is a multitude of these creepy beasts. It's also another follow-up to Alien (1979), as indicated by the climactic scene. BoG's Score: 6.5 out of 10

Trivia from the Deep: Also known as "Monster" - Barbara Peeters was the director, but the story goes that many scenes were added later by others, such as the 2nd unit director, to spice up the film. There was a remake in 1996 for Showtime TV.
