Professor Donald Blake, a paleontologist at Dunsfield University, finally receives a rare fish, a coelacanth, from Madagascar. This species has remained unchanged for a million years and is in effect a living fossil. The animal arrives frozen but after accidentally cutting himself on the creature's sharp teeth, Blake puts his hand in the melted ice water. Later, Molly Riordan is found dead in Blake's backyard. The police initially suspect Blake, but fingerprints suggest that there was a third person at Blake's house. Blake's contact with the fish transforms him into a hideous creature, a prehistoric man - and soon dead bodies are appearing on campus.

Monsters kicks off Back to School month with yet another gem I have never seen. Monster on The Campus looks like great Drive-In movie fun looking forward to this one. I did catch up on The Thing that Couldn't Die I wrote up my review here.

Monster hits the airwaves on Me-Tv tonight at 10 pm eastern and 9 pm Central time. Be sure to check your local listing for the times in your neighborhood. I'm looking forward to “Night Walker” with Barbara Stanwyck from last week on WCIU, the U at 11 am!

Let me know if you tuned in to Monster on Campus and your thoughts!
