The Giant Gila Monster 1959 PG

74 mins USA Director. Ray Kellogg

This low-budget addition to the creature features craze of the 1950s sees a giant lizard emerge from a Dallas ravine to terrorise teenagers. The Giant Gila Monster may be incredibly silly, but it’s still a good-natured romp, notable for its Hot Rod, rockabilly, teen-movie stylings and authentic Texan location work.
