Late '50s sf/horror entry from Universal-International. The one and only time I've seen this movie was on late night television many, many years ago. Gotta love scream queen Beverly Garland but the rest of the movie isn't very good. If I remember correctly, Curucu the "beast of the Amazon", turns out to be a "Scooby-Doo", you know, someone pretending to be a monster in order to accomplish some fiendish goal. "And I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those dang kids!"
