A small Texas town is terrorized by the titular lizard, and it's up to a teenage garage mechanic/rock-n-roll singer/munitions expert to save it in this dopey drive-in drama from 1959. Inspired by the highschool hijinks, El Sapo starts a hotrod club, and Mittens invents a new dance. Meanwhile, the monster's troubled post-debut career is profiled.
