Phantom From 10,000 Leagues: Terrible Movies #96
A guy in a tiny rowboat throws an enormous net into the ocean. Then the Phantom From 10,000 Leagues tips over the tiny boat. I'm assuming it's a phantom, because it looks like an overgrown seamonkey. I'm assuming it's from 10,000 leagues because it's right there, like, 5 feet below the surface of the water. Anyway, the guy instantly drowns. He washes ashore, and two guys in suits stand over his corpse squabbling because that's how you have fun at the beach. Then two other guys show up but it still isn't very interesting, and you wonder if Annette Funicello is going to bring her pals, throw a Beach Blanket Bingo and liven up this movie. She doesn't. Then folks stand around and talk some more, people open doors with dramatic looks on their faces, and janitors sweep. I watched it at Hulu, and you can watch it below, but you really shouldn't.
