Creature from the Black Lagoon 3D Review

Excerpt: Poor Creature. While Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, the Mummy, and Wolf Man adorn all sorts of Universal products, the Gillman is often brushed aside. While the others made their names in the ’30s and ’40s, Creature from Black Lagoon seems like an outlier within the early 1950s, the tail end of the monster epics. What that gave the Gillman is experience. Watching all of those previous monsters, he gained a knack for knocking off people and carrying away women.
Summary: One aspect Universal Studios is best remembered and remains highly regarded for is their collection of monster features. Their immense impact and influence in the horror film genre is virtually irrefutable. More than any other movie production company, the studio has left an indelible mark in the cinema of horror, pretty much becoming synonymous with the genre and creating some of the most iconic figures in all the history of film.
Summary: Take a moment and imagine what modern horror would be without Universal Pictures. Without founder Carl Laemmle and his vision for the future of cinema, or his son Carl Laemmle Jr., who inherited the keys to the studio kingdom in 1928, when talkies were rapidly displacing silent films and promising groundbreaking new strides in moviemaking and the movie-going experience.
