Beast From Haunted Cave


In the opening credits it says “The producers would like to thank the people of South Dakota, without whom this picture would not have been possible.” I suspect the people of South Dakota are still trying to recover. It was a Corman production (not Roger, but his older brother Gene), and one of the stars was Sinatra (not Frank, or Frank Jr., or even Nancy, but Richard, the son of Frank’s cousin Ray). Some robbers are planning to blow up an old gold mine to create a distraction for a bank they intend to knock over. But there’s some hideous monster hiding in the cave … It’s not even bad enough to be funny. I stopped after half an hour.
