Tagline: The Blaze Of The Sun Made Him A Monster!

Plot: After exposure to radiation, an atomic research scientist finds himself changing into a murderous, lizard-like creature every time he is exposed to sunlight.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again? Nah.

#34 on 42nd Street Forever Vol. 2: The Deuce (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

If only the entire movie could be as fun and cheesy as this line...

Whiskey and science don't mix.  LOL.  Or maybe if only the entire movie could have been as sexy as this...

Hubba hubba!

The film makers were able, though, to make a picture that will likely hold your attention until the predictable, anti-climactic finale (the location on top of the tower was fun).  When it's all said and done you'll feel like you had a reasonably fun 74 minutes but not one that you're likely to revisit.  At least not me anyway.  I love watching movies like this even if they don't always deliver the goods (cheesy or otherwise).  It's better than average and that's all I can hope for.
