Creature from the Black Lagoon

85%

One of the original 3D creature features, 1954's Creature from the Black Lagoon made a persuasive argument against letting scientists go off on unsupervised expeditions -- like the one that the allegedly brilliant Dr. Carl Maia (Antonio Moreno) leads into the Amazon, where he persists in horsing around looking for fossils even after members of his team are mysteriously murdered. And then, if that weren't foolhardy enough, he sails into a place called the Black Lagoon -- after his guide tells him no one has ever returned from it. After all that, it's sort of hard not to root for the watery, web-fingered Creature -- or to keep from cheering along with the Chicago Reader's Dave Kehr, who smirked, "[Director] Jack Arnold has a flair for this sort of thing, and if there really is anything frightening about a man dressed up in a rubber suit with zippers where the gills ought to be, Arnold comes close to finding it."
