A sleepy little lighthouse community has a big problem when bodies begin piling up (thankfully there’s the ice room at Kochek’s Store for meats and groceries) and a scale from a thought-to-be-extinct prehistoric amphibian is found nearby. It could only be the work of the monster of Piedras Blancas, the titular creature in the 1958 cult monster flick The Monster of Piedras Blancas.

Monster was shot by Philip Lathrop (The Driver), two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Cinematography (The Americanization of Emily, Earthquake).
