Halloween Challenge #22

Monstroid is sort of a Kaiju movie set in Columbia. An American company is polluting the local river and has created a giant monster. This is another one from Elvira's Movie Macabre.

The monster isn't the only issue. The corporation is out to get the troublemakers, such as the newscaster who is exposing them, the local priest (John Carradine) who is fomenting rebellion, and revolutionary types out to help him. The corporate honcho on the scene is James Mitchum, son of the legendary Robert Mitchum. Jimbo got the old man's looks (save the Tom Selleck mustache), but not the cool. Ah well. There are also some kids playing Scooby-Doo gang hunting the monster. Will the town be saved?

Watch it on Hulu.

Verdict: Oy vey. What a fershtinkiner.

:-D - Didn't Toxie go to Washington in one of those films? I can't take Troma stuff, so I haven't paid attention for years.
