This review is from: Roger Corman's Cult Classics: Humanoids from the Deep [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) Un film que je n'avait pas revu depuis longtemps,enfin la version intÃ©grale!Un petit film d'horreur bien sympa avec des effets spÃ©ciaux du grand Rob Bottin.
When I bought this on VHS, they had listed the same cast from the original version made in the late 70's to early 80's. The remake was not as good as the original - which I wanted.To all who are inclined to purchase this video, BE ON GUARD.You may not like the version they made.
This review is from: Humanoids from the Deep (Roger Corman's Cult Classics) (DVD) Roger Corman goes back to the kinds of films he directed very early in his career-only more graphic-with 1980's Humanoids From The Deep, a good ol fashioned "monsters on the rampage" kinda deal.As everybody in the free world knows, the mutant fishmen in this film attack a fishing town called Noyo coz they want to reproduce(Noyo must be located upstream). They attack from the water, slaughtering the men and getting down to slimy business with the chicks in the sand in a kind of Corman version of From Here To Eternity. Strangely, the humanoids never seem to attack ugly women, and though they kinda clumsily shuffle along, they always manage to catch the women. No one knows what's causing the strange deaths and attacks at first, but leave it to ol' Doug McClure to smell something fishy going on. With the help of a Native American fisherman(who's been branded the murderer by the town bigot, Vic Morrow) and a female scientist(who's partly responsible for these humanoids but never really owns up to it) McClure figures out what's REALLY going on, but soon the humanoids are launching a full out assault on the annual Salmon Festival. Fish, sex and violence run rampant!Not the most politically correct of films, but there's no reason in the world it should be. It's good ol' creature feature fun the way we like it done. Once again Corman makes great use of his tiny budget. The humanoid costumes by Rob Bottin are great. The documentary on this new DVD tells how director Barbara Peeters wasn't too pleased with the outcome of this film(didn't she know what kind of movie she was doing?), as she wanted a much tamer film, and Corman hired a second director to shoot some of the more juicy scenes. Corman also lured in actors under a different film title coz he knew no one would want to audition for a film called Humanoids From The Deep!The film on this DVD is the International version known as "Monster", and has a few extra snippets of gore. Yet another Corman hit from the Shout Factory. Keep em coming!
This is by no means a huge gorefest like Braindead or Bad Taste, but it sure does deliver enough bloody violence to satisfy gorehounds. One guy gets his face ripped, one monster's organs are revealed, and then there's a bloody finale where all the monsters come out to wreck chaos during a huge festival (don't act like you didn't see that coming). The story doesn't remain stagnant in any spots either. No boring pointless discussions. In fact there was an interesting sub-plot about an Indian guying suing this one guy. The attempt to scientifically explain the fish-monster's origins at an evolutionary standpoint was easy to follow too. Gave the movie more merits. There's nudity but not to the point that I'd considered this a softcore porno. Oh yeah and the sex jokes are cleverly paced, especially the one concerning "wood".
Watching this movie is like a ride on one of those cheesy scary fair rides.Evil humanoid creatures with really long arms and big brain heads rise fromthe ocean to wreak havoc on a New England town. They proceed to graphicallyrape and rip the tops off many an ample chested actress. You feel sorry forthe actors that had to film ocean scenes, as it appears to be just abovefreezing temperatures and they clearly don't want to frolic in the seaweedywater. Still manages to be sort of creepy in that B movie way, but skip ifyou don't like graphic violence.
This review is from: Humanoids From Deep (DVD) Grab a 6-pack of Olympia beer for this one, it's schlock cinema at it's absolute finest! If you're looking for a twisted combination of gore, nudity, and cheese, it doesn't get much better than this. Humanoids From the Deep kicks the '80s off in fine fashion, with enough touches of '70s exploitation and '50s monster madness inserted to make this essential viewing for the cult horror fan. Some fiendish/foolish scientists get to tinkering with mother nature in the lab, attempting to alter the genetics of the salmon in the small fishing village of Noyo. Bad idea docs...mo fish, mo problems. I'm talking major Salmonella sickness. The end result is a horde of horny fish monsters raping and pillaging the town in chaotic gory splendor. This film is just good sick fun. I honestly believe every horror film needs a beautifully big-breasted chick running across the beach. Plus the gore effects and costumes here are simply great. If the idea of grotesque water monsters mounting hot naked chicks is potentially offensive to you, you might wanna skip this one. The sexual conquests are more than just implied here, although not nearly as graphic as say a Joe D'Amato film. This Corman classic also has a nice touch of humor and cheesiness to balance it out. Must see stuff! Overall grade 4.5 stars. When you're fishing in the sea of sex, science, and violence...you're gonna need a bigger boat.
Monsters chase girls. Monsters rape girls! Any questions? Of course, the idea of inter-species in-out was nothing new in horror.I don't think there ever was any doubt about the intentions of TheGill-Man for instance. But few movies has been as explicit as this.There is the French movie, 'The Beast', which feature some pretty heftysemen fest. But besides that, that is also a really boring film! Thisone deliver the action in decent doses, as it should.The monsters look like huge toads, with exposed brains, and really longarms. A handful of girls get their boobs covered in slime or rolled inthe mud while the monsters have their way. Apparently this movie wasdirected by a woman! Vic Morrow is featured as a racist vigilant who put the blame of therapes on the Indians! He is pretty hilarious as usual, when hehighlighted crappy movies.The 'Alien' syndrome occurs too with a chest explosion. That is alwaysa nice addition.
Ugly story..movie has little to offer at best a B-C ..rental.the display of action best done by a under archiver or has noted washed out actors
When I first saw this flick at 8 years old, the only scene that gave me thenightmares was the fetus-burster (similar to Species II). At the time, Ididn't want to think about natural childbirth again, until I saw Species II(1998), the fetus-burster reminded me of this classic. The woman that dieson the operating table at the end of the film should have had an abortion,instead of spraying blood. In this film, the mutants only know to rip off bikini tops (the mutant fishlove naked bOObs, and feel horny), rape young women, and multiply,especially during the rape scenes. The only scene that might be silly isthe scene where the radio DJ is mauled, and the Salmon Queen about to beattacked, and loses her bikini top (too bad that her bOObs weren'tsilicone-augmented, but she ends up with scars on her chest). I didn't mindthe depiction of the topless scenes (naked bOObs that look like siliconeimplants), but if anyone wants to see a fetus burster or topless scenes,rent Species II or a Playboy video instead.
We've probably all seen a few cheesy monster movies from the 1950s and60s. You know, ones where some kind of big monster seems to take aliking to a beautiful female member of the human species and ends updestroying whoever gets in its way of acquiring said beauty. When themonster finally got his hands on the lovely damsel, he'd run off withher into a cave or somewhere else secluded. Now, thanks to directorBarbara Peeters and producer Roger Corman, we finally get to see whathappens THEN! And it's pretty much what we suspected all along. It'smating season! Who doesn't love this movie? What's not to love? It hasplenty of gore, comedy, ventriloquism, a fast pace, a naked womanrunning down the beach, assorted trashiness, great monsters (designedby Rob Bottin) and a great action-packed finale at a carnival. Anyonewho has seen a few of the more recent Roger Corman movies knows thatmany scenes from this one ended up being reused many more times to savemoney.By the way, ignore the 1996 remake. They just don't make 'em like thisanymore!
"Humanoids from the Deep" is one of my favourite cheesy horror movies fromearly 80's.This nicely woven tale about some strange fish-monsters,whoterrorize a quiet fishing town somewhere in the US,is simplyoutstanding.Thefilm is fast paced,the special effects are excellent and there's also arather high amount of gore and violence.Gotta love especially that coollooking creature costumes!The last scene is completely over the top,butit'sa rip-off of "Alien".Nevertheless,a great sequence!Anyway,if you likegratuitous bloodshed and nudity then this campy masterpiece is a perfectchoice for you.Recommended!
Bickering, stupid townfolk, a tough-as-nails feminist scientist, full frontal nudity and horrible mutant coelacanth(not salmon)monsters....yep, this one's got it all! Sort of a sister film to "Piranha", "HFTD" has all the great cliches of horror from the opening shot taken straight out of "Jaws" to the hand held stalker cam of "Halloween" and the end scene a homage to "Alien". The gangly humanoids, created by Rob Bottin, are meant to look straight out look straight out of some 50's monster flick. Like many monsters they loose their flare after the first 20 minutes of them on screen(Indeed, the scariest sight is probably the mutilated dog carcass on the beach) but they hold well. Pretty gruesome, especially the rape scenes.
Buena Vista recently bought New Concorde. What does this mean tous....? It means clever little horror gems (and not so clever horror gems orseries)like "Humanoids From the Deep", "Piranha", "The Nest", "TheTerror Within", "Sorority House Massacre" and "Slumber Party Massacre"get shelved....Basicaly any film you ever loved that Roger Cormanproduced or took a hand in!This film although not the greatest slab of celluloid is quiteentertaining. Another graceful monsters invading a small town featurewhere the local authorities take the heroes for a couple of whack jobs.Yes, it is more entertaining and better than it sounds. If you are afan of the old creature features from the fifties and sixties then thisis a film for you. It was made in the great era of the practicalspecial effects wizard and made Fangoria reader's go.....oooh and ahhh!Will this film see the light of day in it's correct aspect ratio? Willit see it again at all? I guess we are left at the merciless hands ofDisney...
Humanoids from the Deep certainly isn't the best cheesy eighties horror film around, but it's a decent and fun little flick with enough entertainment value to warrant it a recommendation to horror fans. I'm guessing the film took some influence from the silly Sergio Martino film 'Island of the Fish Men' released a year earlier. The film was produced by low budget horror guru Roger Corman, but it's certainly a world away from the stuff he did earlier in his career; films such as those brilliant Poe adaptations. Even though the film was directed by a woman, there's plenty of misogynistic violence in the film... although it does have to be said that it's difficult to take seriously. The plot follows the consequences of experiments done with DNA. A company has been playing around with frogs and salmon and stuff, and somehow this has lead to the creation of strange human-like amphibian things. This is bad news for the local fishing village; as their quiet existence is about to be threatened by these monsters, who have decided that raping human women is a favorite pastime... Most of the time I was laughing my a$$ off at how goofy the men in rubber suits looked with their long arms and large foreheads, but still the film was great fun as it had lots of gore, blood and nudity. Humanoids From The Deep has everything that I like about horror movies. There is a decent story, cute girls get naked, gory monster attacks abound (especially during the chaotic finale), and the cast consists of a number of name actors spouting off cheesy lines. Among these actors, who probably had a blast making the film even though they would never admit it are Vic Morrow and Doug McClure. However the real star of the show is the humanoids. Looking like a low budget lovechild of Alien, Pumpkinhead, and the space creatures from This Island Earth, they were not bad and were quite impressive considering the time that they were made in although they did look slightly weird in some shots. The creatures were designed by effects artist Rob Bottin and you can see that he was well on his way to learning his craft but was not quite at the level that gave him his permanent place in movie history with his work on The Thing and The Howling.Shout! Factory did a fantastic job with this new dvd as the picture quality was stunning and they really delivered with the extras. To begin, The Making of Humanoids from the Deep is a surprisingly candid retrospective on the film's production with the participation of Roger Corman (of course), composer James Horner, actress Linda Shayne, second unit director James Shardellati, and others. This is presented in anamorphic widescreen. Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scenes offers precisely what it advertises, also in anamorphic widescreen. There is also a Leonard Maltin Interview with Roger Corman on the Making of the Film. This brief extra has a full screen aspect ratio.You also get some radio and television spots, as well as a poster and still gallery, may be found on the second Bonus submenu. Rounding out the extras are two trailers for Humanoids from the Deep (one English and one German) and additional trailers for Galaxy of Terror, Forbidden World and Up from the Depths. It might have been nice to have a commentary track, but with extras like this, I doubt many cult fans will complain. Highly recommended.
Humanoids From The Deep was one of the first "more gory" horror-films thatIÂ´ve seen in my early youth and this is why I remember it as one of myfavourite horror-films ever. Well, in fact thereÂ´s no high quality standardin this Corman-production and the direction tries to catch the viewerÂ´sattention with some (quiet evil)gore effects and nude girls being chased byfunny-looking, costume wearing men. You just have to remind the plot ofJawsto know whatÂ´s going on here but nevertheless, Humanoids From The Deep isone of the films that people call "Good Clean Fun". Just take alook.6 out of 10

This movie seems to pick up where "Creature From The Black Lagoon" leftoff. We all know that the Gill Man wanted some hot, steamy Amazoniansex with the pretty girl in the white bathing suit...but no way werethey going to show that happening back in the 50s! Well, along came1980 and the Gill Man is either high-fiving his amphibious descendants,or he's rolling over in his watery grave.A bunch of salmon (yes, salmon!) exposed to pollution, mutate into somepretty cool looking monsters and go on a rape and murder spree in asmall Pacific Northwest fishing village. There's also a subplotconcerning Native Americans protesting the pollution of their waters,but it seems like an afterthought, as no one could really stretch astory about horny monsters out for an hour and a half. Young, sexuallyactive women in bikinis beware! The monsters are determined toprocreate, and do so in a couple of nasty, icky rape scenes. There'salso an infamously gross-out climax (no pun intended) in which a rapevictim gives birth to a monstrous fish baby. And she didn't reach for acoat hangar earlier because why?Yeesh, now I know why Lovecraft hated fish so much. These guys arenasty! The rubber costumes are great, giving us icky slimy fishmen withgiant exposed brains, nasty little piranha teeth and incrediblyelongated arms. There's lots of bare, jiggling breasts and reallystupid people getting their guts clawed out, so if you like naked girlsand gore, don't miss this one.
Roger Corman is known for his hit films. In "Humanoids From The Deep",you want to reel it in. It's a small fishing town called Noyo, it'sknown for its salmon, it has started to build a cannery there.Unfortunately, it has also reeled in some trouble along the way. Notonly did they draw ire from the Native Americans, a new species ofbeings has spawned from the waters. And heat did they do? They kill theyoung men, and they started to rape the women to breed their young. Sowhat now? These creatures must be stopped. With a cast like this, nowonder this movie was good. It's like "The Creature From The BlackLagoon", only hornier. These fish creatures have more of a sex appetitefor women, than a normal appetite for food. Doug McClure did aspectacular job there. Ann Turkel showed a lot of guts and smarts inthe film. This horror gem is a real keeper, and it should be rememberedwell for years to come. And by all means, avoid the remake! So bringthe popcorn and the fishing gears, don't release this movie in thewaters. 5 stars!
Loaded with gratuitous T&A, buckets of blood and gore and a reasonablecast that includes Doug "The Virginian" McClure, Vic Morrow and ex MrsRichard Harris, Ann Turkel, this New World Pictures cheapy has astruggling fishing community besieged by mutated humanoid creatures whoare seeking to mate with the female populace after they inadvertentlyevolve from a salmon genetics experiment gone awry.American Indian land preservation versus indiscriminate economicexpansion serves as a loose undertone to this slasher-pic that closelyresembles New World's "Piranha" in concept, though executes with lesssuccess. The script is strictly functional with apparently only twoattempts at humour (McClure gesturing at Turkel's superior height andventriloquist David Strassman and his alter-ego Chuck Wood in a randytent encounter), and the special effects while bloody, don't reallymanage to conjure anything but ridiculous-looking title beasts (akin togill-men from other films of the ilk).There's head-ripping, simulated rape, nudity, dog-eating, mutant babybirthing madness galore for those who appreciate that sort of thing,but despite the cult status (essentially for its tasteless excesses),it's still a pretty average flick.
I Loved the movie. It was gori and good. A great plot and awsome creatures.
