113 REPTILICUS (1961) Directed by Sidney Pink *

A Danish monster movie that has little to recommend it beyond curiousity value, a certain grainy charm in the monster scenes and a nice poster. For the rest the direction is non-existent, the script risible, the acting laughable and the special effects pathetic...and you get a travelogue of Copenhagen.
A fan on IMDb mounts a spirited defense of the film and its writer Ib Melchoir.
