Behind The Scenes: Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954)

Wow! How is that for a way to start your Saturday morning, huh?! A big thanks to Quint as always for his excellent behind the scenes series over on Ain’t It Cool News! This time we have the absolute classic Universal Monster, the Gill-Man, or the Creature From The Black Lagoon as he is better known!

Just look at that costume…I really do not think that even today with all of our special effects we can bring to life something as awesome looking as that. We’ve come close of course with the Monster Squad and the fabulous works that the Stan Winston Studios brought to life.

That photo came from Steve Wang’s MySpace Page and make sure to take the time to check out his page because he has been involved with a TON of great monster effects!
