CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON

    Part of Universal Monsters + Restored Halloween Classics.

    Universal Pictures introduced audiences to yet another classic movie monster with this superbly crafted tale of an Amazonian fossil-hunting expedition gone awry. Traveling down a dark tributary, the group encounters and captures a prehistoric, amphibious “Gill Man” — who escapes and abducts their sole female member, spiriting her off to his lair. Director Jack Arnold makes excellent use of the tropical location, employing heavy mists and eerie jungle noises to create an atmosphere of nearly constant menace.

    ...A good piece of science-fiction of the beauty and the beast school, the beast in this case being a monstrous combination of man and fish. It makes for solid horror-thrill entertainment.” —The Hollywood Reporter (Feb 9, 1954)
