El Monstro del Mar! (2010) is an Australian exploitation-inspired horror film written and directed by Stuart Simpson for Breaking Glass Pictures and Lost Art Films. Starring Nelli Scarlet, Kyrie Capri, Karli Madden, Kate Watts, and Norman Yemm.

Three gorgeous but deadly hired killers, Beretta, Blondie and Snowball, hole up in a small beachside cmmunity to keep a low profile. But this town has a dark secret. The local old sea baron, Joseph, tries desperately to warn them to never go into the water. But these crazy vixens listen to no one. So the Kraken awakes! Now, along with Joseph and his beautiful granddaughter, Hannah, they must fight for their lives against this furious creature of the deep as the sea rises in a tidal wave of blood!

Girls, guns or zombies? “Killer Vixens vs. the Creature from the Deep!”

Not rated. 74 minutes. Watch the official trailer here …

Featuring music by Australian indie rockers The Stabs. Actress Nelli Scarlet is/was the lead singer of Melbourned-based hard rock band The Scarlets.

My thoughts… El Monstro del Mar! is like Russ Meyer’s 1965 sexploitation classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! meets one of B-movie auteur Roger Corman’s 1950s creature feature quickies! This film is dripping with awesome retro coolness and bad-ass grindhouse style!
