Default Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954)

A pretty good movie. This was a great effort by Universal, introducing a great, new monster: The Gill-man. Worth checking out.

I meant that the film was pretty good, but was made with great effort from the crew

It's not my favourite 50's horror though. That honour goes to "Them!"

My favorite Universal monster movie. Just love everything about this film especially the scene where the creature swims underneath Julie Adams.
Great to finally have the film in 3D. It looks great. The fossil hand sticking out of the rock actually comes out of the screen.
Now that's 3D !

The Gill man is a fantastic creation and the suit still looks good today.
