The Creature from the Black Lagoon
If we've learned anything from reporting the latest news here at Dread Central over the years, it's that Hollywood is a fickle place where ideas come and go, and many planned and proposed films find themselves in the dreaded development hell.
Now here's something you don’t see every day. In fact, it's a first! Julie Adams, star of Creature From the Black Lagoon, will be hosting a Q&A and autograph signing at a pair of 3D screenings of the film at the Patio Theater in Chicago on September 28.
Did you buy Mezco's 9" Creature from the Black Lagoon figure a few months back? If so, you're gonna love his new translucent cousin! Yep! Things are getting really fishy, kids, and your toy shelf will never be the same.
On a personal level I make no bones about it... The Creature from the Black Lagoon is one of my all time favorite movie monsters, and to this very day it holds up as one of the best monster suits ever created. Get ready to take a full color look at him in all his gilled glory!
Mockbusters were around way before The Asylum. The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) and its subsequent sequels Revenge of the Creature (1955) and finally The Creature Walks Among Us (1956) also had an illegitimate cousin.
Oh, Diamond Select Toys! How easy you make it to part with our hard earned cash. Fans of the Universal monsters be warned ... you're about to drool all over yourself ... AGAIN!
Can it be true? Is the final Saw really upon us? Hard to believe James Wan’s little indie nasty resonated with audiences six years back in a way large enough to spawn six freakin’ sequels. And what’s more surprising is that Jigsaw waited until the very end of his October reign to cash in on the trendy 3D craze that’s been putting the hurt on our wallets the last few years.
This technically isn't new news since it was announced this past June but since I just learned of it the other day I thought I'd pass along the info anyway to those like me that haven't already heard. Believe or not, Universal Studios Hollywood is planning a Creature from the Black Lagoon stage musical.
