A rear-projected monster just doesn't put audiences in a deep state of fear, especially when it's a lizard. It does, however, induce occasional uncontrolled laughter. Sullivan and his merry band of hip teenagers battle the giant gila that has been threatening northern Texas, and even
disturbing a local record hop. Directed by veteran cameraman Kellogg, whose only other claim to fame is as codirector with John Wayne of THE GREEN BERETS.
