Movie review - "Attack of the Crab Monsters" (1957) **1/2 (re-viewing)
I keep wanting to like this more than I do. The story is great - Charles Griffith did a very strong script, full of pace and action and cleverness. You really could remake it and I wish Corman had when his direction got better. He also might have had better leads than Pamela Duncan and Richard Garland, though Mel Welles and Russell Johnson and Ed Nelson are very fine, as are the island locations.
