Reptilicus (1961)

How bad is it? Except for the terrible monster effects, this isn't half bad.
Should you see it? Yes, especially if you like Godzilla-type films.

A Danish monster movie with the most local Danish flavor since Solvang, California's "Homicidal," this film has oil drillers finding a hunk of flesh, which regenerates into a full prehistoric monster. There's some interesting characters and some thought about what should be done and a nice pseudo-documentary feel to the scenes of the army hunting it down. The monster, though, is laugh out loud terrible.
