Plot & Details
This campy little sci-fi oddity presents a particularly silly brand of monster: a zombie gangster, hilariously christened "Gegagoo" (short for "Geological, Gaseous Goon"... no, really!) by scientist George Gobel. When a formless, meteorite-borne alien entity crashes into a lake in which gangsters had recently hidden the body of an assassinated enemy, the corpse rises from the depths to wreak havoc with the locals -- particularly a group of dorky college kids who drop by the pond for an evening swim. This could have been campy, '50s-style fun in more competent hands; instead, we get bored silly with a lot of talking heads, unimaginative monster mayhem, turgid pacing, and pathetic attempts at humor.
