31 Days of Halloween: Day 27

black-lagoon.jpg

#5 — Creature from the Black Lagoon   I said in an earlier post that I thought this movie and “War of the Worlds” typified sci-fi and horror films of the 1950s, and I stand by my claim.

“Creature from the Black Lagoon” is such a fun flick. The monster isn’t as lovable as, say, King Kong, as sympathetic as Frankenstein’s monster, or as athletic as Lon Chaney Jr.’s Wolf Man, but he (it?) still more than fits the bill as a marquee-worthy star. Maybe it’s the ruby-red lips on the poster above, or the lecherous way he eyes up poor Julia Adams, whose assets in a white one-piece surely contributed more than their share to ticket sales among pubescent boys in the movie’s heyday.

And probably no Universal Monster received such shoddy treatment at the Creature did in one of his sequels. In “The Creature Walks Among Us,” the poor gill-man is operated on and made human, which only adds to his woes. Stick with the original.

    Cool movie. Cool monster. One of my favorites. I used to have a rubber action figure of the Gill Man when I was a kid. It was green and covered with pebbly bumps. I also had a furry Wolf Man mask. I tend to remember fondly and prefer those characters whose merchandising I had growing up.
