One of my weaknesses (not just creature, monster, and giant insect movies) is the setting of the movie. Sometimes it's the best part. Everyone, especially writers of any kind know the landscape can tell the story, take away from the story, or add to the story, (Who Goes There- John W. Campbell Jr. (Filmed as The Thing), cold, dark, horrible- that's a technical description- strands you in the Antarctic). When there's a desert, mountains, jungle, cloudy, snowy, windy, and smoky description each one transports the audience to another place and time. Enter Creature from the Black Lagoon-
Lucas: "I can tell you something about this place. The boys around here call it 'The Black Lagoon' - a paradise. Only they say nobody has ever come back to prove it."
The movie takes you deep inside the Amazon jungle, has you watching the ripples in the water, the trees, and wondering what is lurking in the shadows. Besides, you know, a man-fish!
The greatness of classic creatures, monsters, insects, and the world of B horror, B science fiction in books and film continues!
By M.A. Kastle
It weaves through his decaying flesh, forever tightening its talons on his stagnant heart. Its force, a kind of poison courses through his spoiled veins, keeping his body alive, and his soul suspended between the underworld of the dead and the world of the living. Ribbons of weakness wrap around his will and demand he give up and die. He won’t. He remains alive feeding on the desire of revenge. The dark and deadly visions entertain him, and keep his ancient mind from eating the slivers of madness.
Because you wanted to see this picture! Sooo, my love of monster movies is bad :)
That's right- Julie Adams - Awesome!
And then, there's everywhere I am.
