The Monster That Challenged the World
In this horror film, an underwater earthquake in the Sargasso Sea yields up the eggs of a long-extinct sea monster. Once hatched, the monster's offspring sustain themselves by sucking the life forces of various unlucky human land dwellers. Even worse, these horrendous creatures procreate at an incredible rate.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As Fifties monster movies go, the 1957 production isn't bad. There are a couple of good shock cuts, a special attention paid to idiosyncratic supporting players, and the usual mix of romance, military efficiency and doomed teenagers."
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"An enjoyable but poorly made monster film that should satisfy those whose expectations are low."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Agreeable retro nonsense."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"Agreeable sci-fi flick with unusual monster and location."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
