  • My Take: A classic for its day. Jack Arnold's CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON is, most likely, FRANKENSTEIN and Dracula's little cousin. A little-known relative of the more famous monster movie classics, CREATURE is nonetheless a nice trip down memory lane.

  • It has been nearly 59 years since CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON premiered in dual-strip 35mm polarized 3-D. The feature's storyline and the iconic Gillman have been covered elsewhere numerous times and will not be repeated here.

  • For the first time ever, the original Creature from the Black Lagoon film comes to DVD in this extraordinary Legacy Collection. Included in the collection is the original classic, starring Richard Carlson, and two timeless sequels, featuring such legendary actors as John Agar and Jeff Morrow.

  • Scientists drug and capture the creature, who becomes enamored with the head scientist's female assistant (Julie Adams). The lonely creature, "a living amphibious missing link," escapes and kidnaps the object of his affection.

  • The Tomatometer score — based on the opinions of hundreds of film and television critics — is a trusted measurement of critical recommendation for millions of fans.

  • Creature from the Black Lagoon 3D Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release In the early 1950s, a scientific expedition into the Amazon recovers a strange fossilized claw that could be a missing link between creatures that swim in the seas and those that walk on land.

  • It's one of the great suspense scenes in '50s genre cinema: a woman swims in the clear cool water of an Amazonian lagoon, blissfully unaware of the grotesque creature emerging from the depths beneath her.

  • One of the most classic horror films of all time, The Creature From The Black Lagoon is about The Gil Man, a monster from the depths of the Amazon. James Rolfe gives his thoughts on this for his History of Horrors segment of Cinemassacre's Monster Madness
