THE CRATER LAKE MONSTER (1977) * ½

A meteor lands in a small hick town. The sheriff and a local scientist investigate, but two dumb fishermen get the most screen time. The meteor awakens a dinosaur in the titular lake and it begins eating up the locals. The sheriff saves the day by killing it with a snowplow! The performances and direction are pretty bad, and the effects are suitably cheesy, but that’s not enough to recommend it to anyone with a pulse. There’s also a weird, violent liquor store robbery that has no bearing whatsoever on anything and is totally out of place with the rest of the movie. The stop motion animation was done by Dave (Laserblast) Allen. Filmed in “Fantamation”.
