"Schlock is very much a comedy - a broad and hairy comedy - but from its ominous opening through to its tragic-ish end it's clear that Landis is making an homage fueled by true affection for the material and a deep knowledge of its history."
- Film School Rejects

"Essentially a silly movie, but kind of a missing link, so to speak, between the worlds of L.A. Monster fandom in the early '70s and real moviemaking." - DVD Savant

A monkey-type monster falls in love with a blind girl, who thinks that he's a giant dog. After kidnapping the girl and fleeing King-Kong-like onto the roof of a gym, he gets involved with the Army.
