Movie Review by Clayton
March 28th, 2012

A 1950s, Stop-Motion, Dynamation Creature Feature

Mean and ugly, a reptilian biped called Ymir, brought back from Venus by US astronauts, grows from its small, embryonic state to that of a 20 foot tall, rampaging monster with attitude to spare.

An American spaceship returning to Earth crashes into the sea near Sicily, Italy, leaving Colonel Calder as its only survivor.... or so it seems.

A gelatinous specimen found inside a sealed container recovered from the wreck is unknowingly unleashed before it can be properly studied. Once this specimen is exposed to Earth's atmosphere it grows to a fantastic height almost overnight.

Ymir soon escapes from its caged confines and heads out on a wild rampage through the city of Rome where it must face a final showdown with the muscle of military forces.

All typically wrapped up with a happy ending for the Earthlings, but not so for the poor, confused Ymir.
