Cool off this summer with underwater chills and thrills in this stunning new DCP restoration of the classic ‘50s creature feature in eye-popping 3D!
“Highly entertaining … it’s especially fun in 3D!” – Jay Seaver, eFilmCritic.com
"To reinvigorate your love for 3D and see the format done right, look no further than 1954’s classic monster flick Creature from the Black Lagoon. With this gorgeous restoration, Creature has never looked better, and rarely has 3D been this immersive, crisp and beautiful (especially the underwater scenes)—and all in glorious black-and-white." – Tony Timpone, Fangoria
“Seen in its original 3D format, Creature is transformed from a fun monster movie into a work of extraordinary atmosphere.” – Richard Scheib, Sci-Fi, Horror and Fantasy Film Review
An expedition up the Amazon turns into a slimy monster mash in this classic ‘50s chiller, presented in a new DCP restoration in the original 3D format – the terror will be splashing right off the screen and into your lap, so watch out! A team of intrepid scientists (played by 1950’s genre vets Richard Carlson, Julie Adams and Richard Denning ) set off on an excursion up the Amazon to find traces of the Missing Link and his prehistoric past. But the unprepared explorers end up getting more than they bargained for when they run afoul of the fabled “Gill Man” — a half man/half fish with a bad temper and an unhealthy fascination with the beautiful Ms. Adams. Filled with unforgettably iconic images, the most famous being the oddly romantic synchronized swimming scene between the Gill Man and his lovely prey, Creature from the Black Lagoon was the last of the classic Universal Studios creature features, spawning two Creature sequels (not to mention serving as inspiration for Spielberg’s Jaws). Featuring luminous underwater 3D photography and great, jump-out-of-your-seat scares, Creature is still a ton of fright-filled fun. If you’ve never seen this in 3D (or even if you have), you need to make plans to swim on over to The Loft and catch the Gill Man … before he catches you!
