Revenge Of The Creature. 1955.

Jack Arnold returns for the sequel, reports of the Gil Man have caused a few people to go out and find it, not to kill it but to capture it alive and have it displayed at a aquarium. While the Gil Man is on display he gets a bit upset and manages to escape causing panic.

Like the previous film you can't fault the underwater photography, for it's time this would have been amazing to see first hand but we can only visualize what the audience felt. This seems to lack the shock, terror and atmosphere but seems to go towards a love story between the leading lady and the monster, ok he may not know how to ask her out and ends up becoming a stalker. This was a decent sequel.
