A scientific expedition searching for fossils along the Amazon River discovers a prehistoric Gill-Man in the legendary Black Lagoon. The explorers capture the mysterious creature, but it breaks free. The Gill-Man returns to kidnap the lovely Kay, fiancée of one in the expedition, with whom it has fallen in love.

I was thrilled by this movie as a kid, and still love it today. For a small budget Science Fiction/Horror movie of the fifties, this is a great show. It’s well paced, well acted, has great music to accompany the action, and Bud Westmore’s Gill Man is a marvel to enjoy. Originally this was a 3-D movie, and thankfully, it looks so much better in regular flat screen. I never really did catch the 3-D craze.

This is a terrific adventure of Man out of his element fighting a Monster in his element. The Gill Man is a thinking being, but, still a monster, who remembers the injuries done him by man and seeks retribution. If the scientists had left him alone, he’d have left them alone. They were the invaders.

And, thank goodness that they didn’t have a scene of the kidnapped Julia making friends with the now “peaceful” Gill Man (to show his human side), only to have the heroes show up and kill him. She was taken as “bait” to lure the humans into the Gill Man’s lair.

It spawned two sequels (yes, there were sequels even back then), and both are good in their own right, they just didn’t achieve what the original did all the way around. Enjoy.
