THE SHE CREATURE (1956 U.S.) D: EDWARD L. CAHN W: LOU RUSSOFF P: ALEX GORDON
Chester Morris is a "Doctor" and carnival hypnotist who loves Marla English. The feeling is not mutual so Morris keeps her under his spell, touring the country while demonstrating hypnotic regression to past lives. After each demo, a scaly, big breasted (!) monster (Paul Blaisdell in one of his typicaly interesting, oddball monster suits) rises from a lake and kills. With Tom Conway, Lance Fuller, Frieda Inescort, Ron Randell, Frank Jenks, El Brendel, Paul Dubov, Jack Mulhall, Kenneth MacDonald, Edward Earle, Luana Walters, Edmund Cobb, Bess Flowers and Stuart Holmes. B/w quickie from A.I.P. is moody but very talky, worth a look for Blaisdell fanatics. His monster suit returned in Cahn`s worse VOODOO WOMAN, and this was remade by Larry Buchanan as CREATURE OF DESTRUCTION. The title was re-used in 2001.
