Director Eugene Lourie moves the plot of his feature directorial debut, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953), to England in this monster movie.
After hearing reports of irradiated fish being washed up off the English coast and local fishermen suffering mysterious burns, researchers conclude that the culprit is a radioactive dinosaur, whose underwater habitat has been polluted by atomic waste. Their theories are proven correct when the beast emerges from the water and heads towards London, causing scientists to scramble for a way to eliminate the monster without showering the city with radiation.
Aka Behemoth, the Sea Monster.
