      Chris M This isn't how hypnotism works. Even if reincarnation was possible, you can't just bring a past life in the flesh just through hypnotism. Plus, there was no creature like that lobster woman that ever walked the Earth. But as incredibly dumb it is, it's dumb fun. The lobster woman is a cool Sentai-ish design, long before Sentai though It can drag but it's fun to riff during a bad movie night. You can do way worse than this cheese good bad flick. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/13/23 Full Review deke p Typical 1950s sock. The monster looked like he was made out of seaweed. Never heard of her until I saw it on the movie channel 1.21.2022 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member There are different types of movies featured on MST3K : shity movies, extreme shit and then there's The She Creature. Campy, bad and low-budget, this is only watchable on MST3K and still. Although, the special effects are surprisingly good for a low budget film. But still, not recommended. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Another hilariously bad movie in my film diet, The She-Creature is about a hypnotist who hypnotizes his assistant and brings her back as someone from a previous life. The trouble is that he's also bringing her back as a terrifying monster from the sea. The movie isn't altogether terrible, I suppose, but what it is is horribly boring most of the time. It has lots of unintentionally funny moments when the sea creature gets involved with the plot, but it's pretty boring and static. The crew from Mystery Science Theater 3000 riffed on this one and it made for a hilarious episode, which I'd recommend. The movie by itself is definitely lackluster. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Again watched the mst3k version but the movie wasn't that bad Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A woman is put under hypnosis so her soul can leave her body and come back as a bloodthristy sea creature. It's a silly sort of film but it managed to keep my attention. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
