Title: "Destination Inner Space" (1966) Coming to DVD on May 17th!

I've wanted to see "Destination Inner Space" for years. I've seen pictures of the huge, rubber Creature from the Black Lagoon knock-off suit in books, magazines and websites, but I've never been able to see the fantastic looking underwater adventure it appears in. I was just browsing thedigitalbits.com and discovered it's coming out on DVD May 17th.

I sent an email to Wonderfest's Dave Conover, who got very excited, as he had seen it last on a Friday movie night in his elementary school auditorium. This title might well be of interest to the UMA as a whole.

Oh, man! I've seen this a few times, but not in a number of years. I DO remember that colourful suit getting into some rockem' sockem' action with the actors. Of course, I also remember seeing the "underwater lab" and wondering why they were showing us a little plastic model sitting on a rock. It wasn't until years later that i realized 'that was supposed to be the undersea lab"!!  :)

The acting and the sets are as about as credible as an Ed Wood movie, but the monster looks pretty good. They must have exhausted the budget on his costume. ;)

I LOVE this movie! It's great to see Mike Roads, the voice of Race Bannon, and the monster is very cool. A very fun 60s drive-in/afternoon Creature Feature movie.
