Creature From The Black Lagoon’s 65th Anniversary Day Thread (10/1)

October 1st – the journey to Halloween begins today and we are kicking off the season by celebrating The Creature From the Black Lagoon’s 65th Anniversary.

The Creature From the Black Lagoon was released in 1954.

The synopsis of the film – ” Remnants of a mysterious animal have come to light in a remote jungle, and a group of scientists intends to determine if the find is an anomaly or evidence of an undiscovered beast. To accomplish their goal, the scientists (Antonio Moreno, Richard Carlson, Richard Denning, Whit Bissell) must brave the most perilous pieces of land South America has to offer. But the terrain is nothing compared to the danger posed by an otherworldly being that endangers their work and their lives.

I feel like the Creature doesnt get a lot of love the other Universal Monsters do.

Another reason to give the spotlight to the Gill Man today.

I love the redesign Stan Winston gave him in The Monster Squad.

Here is a trailer for the original creature feature


Have a great Tuesday and keep an eye out for other horror themed OTs throughout the month of October
