The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms Blu-ray Review


Beast from 20,000 Fathoms preys on nuclear fear, then uses bogus radioactive science as a solution. It’s thoroughly American in approach, scientists banding together to study nuclear weapons harmlessly in the Arctic. Hubshmid’s militaristic role as a probe for nuclear answers and solutions solidifies the film’s approval for government armament. The film reads like unsanctioned propaganda – Nukes spawn monsters, but they also stop them. They’re necessary. If Beast were anything other than a quickie B-offering soaked up by Warner, there may have been some strength in the parable.”
