The Monster Of Piedras Blancas (1959) The monster, which looks like a nastier version of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon," invades a sleepy lighthouse town. The superstitious lighthouse keeper is worried for the safety of his beautiful teenage daughter, so he leaves food for the monster, who dwells in a nearby cave. When bodies wash up ashore, the locals take notice.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Fred: There's been another murder. Sturges, the Lighthouse Keeper: Who? Fred: Kochek. We found his body this afternoon. Sturges, the Lighthouse Keeper: He talked too much.
Movie Trivia:
  • The monster suit looks like the one from Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), mainly because the creator of The Creature, Jack Kevan, produced and supervised the make-up effects on the film. Much is credited to Universal-International's standard make-up credit of Bud Westmore, but he had little to do (other than posing for publicity photos) with the great monsters from that studio in the '50's.
  • The hands of the monster were the same as those props used in The Mole People (1956).
  • Piedras Blancas actually exists. It's a town on the central California coast, and it does have a lighthouse that was used in this film, but only for exterior shots.
