Irradiated Giant Crabs Eat Scientists' Brains on Pacific Atoll. Is this a headline for a popular tabloid? No. But it is the basic premise of this low-budget but chilling Roger Corman horror outing.
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 60%

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Smarter than you'd be right in expecting a movie called Attack of the Crab Monsters to be, and this is in part because the crabs themselves are that much smarter, too."
‑ Rob Humanick,
"... a bizarre entry in the post-atomic giant creature features with a twist of ghost story."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"Bear in mind we're talking about giant mutant telepathic crabs bent on world domination."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A minor cult film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A truly weird, even surreal film that offers more evidence that dehumanization -- whether by mutation, takeover, identity transference, transformation or insanity -- is Corman's great theme..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
