Be afraid, be very afraid

One of my favorite movies as a child, "Creature from the Black Lagoon," is slated to be remade. Let's hope it's more than a special-effects extravaganza. I'm guessing the maker of this creature also was a fan of the 1954 film. The skin is the red tape an electrician might use, the eyes are sheet-metal screws and the whole thing is slathered in liquid rubber, giving it an appropriately icky feel.


  1. hey kevin, you KNOW where the original was filmed, doncha? WAKULLA SPRINGS, the sweetest little corner of oldness you're likely to yr blog BTW...!

  2. Eileen, thanks so much for the movie history and for looking at the blog. I always find it interesting what brings the comments and what doesn't.
