Monster from the Ocean Floor is a 1954 science fiction film about a sea monster that terrorizes a cove in Mexico. The film was directed by Wyott Ordung and starred Anne Kimbell and Stuart Wade. Wade also starred in other low-budget films during the decade including Tarantula (1955), and Teenage Monster (1958). Producer Roger Corman also appeared in a cameo in the film. It was the second film that Corman produced.

Plot

Julie Blair (Kimbell) is an American vacationing at a sea-side village in Mexico. She hears stories about a man-eating creature dwelling in the cove. She meets Dr. Baldwin (Dick Pinner), a marine biologist, and they fall for one another. The mysterious death of a diver interests Julie in investigating, but Baldwin is very skeptical. She sees a giant amoeba rising from the ocean.

Cast

Production

According to Roger Corman, $4,000 of the film's budget came from Orduna, $3,500 from Corman (from the sale of a story to Allied Artists), $5,000 in deferment from Consolidated Labs, and money raised privately by selling $500 and $1,000 shares.[2]
