"Re-watch - Oct. 29th My daughter picked Creature for us to watch together after dinner tonight, and while she poked fun at it at times she liked the Gill-man and enjoyed it overall. Aside from his theme music which is overused, it's a solid film...far from a personal favorite but definitely not bad."

"This is often considered the last great Universal monster movie, and one of the precursors to the creature feature. And while it's certainly an influential film, it's not one that has held up considerably well. The concept of being able to film scenes underwater was a new one when this picture was produced, so there are many overlong, and considerably sloppy (by today's standards) underwater shots. The title creature is also rather silly to behold. The costume almost looks convicing until the ma"

"the underwater scenes were quite impressive especially Ricou Browning's swimming/diving with the creature suit on parts. The Gill-man suit is pretty great looking if only they would have been able to make the eyes a bit more lifelike for the costume it would still be quite impressive nowadays too."

" DVD- 1hr. 19min. First Viewing It is inherently interesting thanks to it's filmmaking skill and makeup innovations, though Creature from the Black Lagoon is a bit hamstrung by the era it's made. While there is a classic charm to the story, it's a rather bland one that doesn't start to form until the last fifteen minutes. There is, also, a serious lack of the title Creature; this is likely do to the fact that technical innovations limited the filmmaking possibilities, despite some legendary make"
