Film: Monster from the Ocean Floor (1954)
Height/Weight: Described as being bigger than 3 wagons.
Summary: Scuba diving is fun! Except when it isn't. And lordy, can things go south quickly. The ocean is a breeding ground for unknown terrors, like that monster amoeba that scared everyone into hysterics.
History: For years, a seaside village in Mexico was under the thumb of terror. A monstrous amoeba of unknown origin had been haunting their waters, and there seemed to be no end to its reign. Many started to grow desperate and believe that only a virgin sacrifice would make it go away. They thought an American newcomer would suffice.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: The man who came up with the sacrifice wizens up and lets the professionals take it from there. The solution? Ram a submarine into the beast's one eye. It worked.
Powers/Abilities: Nothing outside strength.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 1.5-This is what that village was afraid of?! Aside from being not very powerful, this thing has what looks like a glowing thumb for a face and the stubbiest tentacles we've ever seen on a cephalopod just short of a dumbo octopus. It's not very impressive.
Trivia: -This was Roger Corman's first production.
-Oh, and Corman claims to have sacrificed his apartment and some of his life insurance to make this. Eh, worth it.
