David Decoteau on

Monster on the Campus

Released 1958
Distributor Universal

A late entry in the 1950s Universal International monster gallery, this is mostly composed of leftover ideas and props from the glory days. Still, there’s a level of studio professionalism that its indie competitors could never match. Perennially affordable sci-fi leading man Arthur Franz, infected with the blood of a prehistoric fish, turns into a Neanderthal who chases pretty coeds and comes to (natch) a bad end out on the backlot.
