The Creature From Black Lagoon

The movie The Creature From Black Lagoon is actually called The Creature From The Black Lagoon but people often refer to it by the first title, I expect because they are not very familiar with the movie or maybe even because they are unsure of the actual title.

Anyhow, Creature From The Black Lagoon is a 1954 film in which the storyline follows a scientific expedition on the Amazon River that discovers a human-like creature with gills. It is a low-budget, older film which really is, depending upon who you listen to, more tense than scary.

This creature feature was originally released in 3D. I smile as I picture that version but don't believe it is available anymore. Wouldn't it be fun to watch an old movie like this in 3D?

The movie actually manages to score a hefty 85 percent from the reviewers at Rotten Tomatoes with comments which refer to the atmosphere and and the makeup used to make the half fish, half man creature, the later which was considered masterful for its time.

What do you think? If you are looking for a tense movie that's a bit scary, you might consider this one. It is actually a good choice for tweens who want to watch horror movies, so long as they are willing to watch an older film.

A Universal Studios Classic Monster Collection movie, The Creature From The Black Lagoon stars Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning and Antonio Moreno. I checked for my blu-ray readers and unfortunately it is not available on blu-ray. It is, however, a classic monster movie with amazingly good Amazon Customer Reviews, which you can check out here.

So tell me, are you willing to let The Creature From The Black Lagoon into YOUR home?


See you
at the movies!
