THE CREATURE WALKS AMONG US / Universal International Pictures - 1956
It's about time we review this final entry to the Creature trilogy after recently scoring the Legacy collection. This time, the Creature's captured by a crew of adventurers and turned into an air-breathing monster by a rich scientist in the lab.
Here's a fun little sound clip from this classic fifties flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our Aroura Creature model, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's... THE CREATURE WALKS AMONG US!
Here are Rex Reason, Jeff Morrow and Gregg Palmer in the control room learning about the new sonar technology that will help them locate the Creature under water. Rex and Jeff are paired up again after they appeared together in THIS ISLAND EARTH. Gregg was in THE ZOMBIES OF MORA TAU and FROM HELL IT CAME. Rex was married to Dungeon Goddess Sanita Pelkey, but unfortunately they divorced after just a year.
Jeff plays rich scientist Dr. Barton, he's learning about what they will be dealing with in case they come across the huge monster. Actually, the Creature doesn't ever appear to be that much larger than a human in person.
The crew arrives in the Florida Everglades (where the Creature ended up at the end of REVENGE OF THE CREATURE) to start their search for the thing.
Do you check me?..
Hit the musical cue, Ralphie!
A fisherman will tell you that night fishing is fly, but, Gill-Man is another kettle of fish!
From bad to worse!..
Is this a great shot or whut?!
The guys discover that under the scales is a man. Not particularly attractive, but, a man!
And, the doc ends up treating him like a dog!
Jealously plays a big part in the story, for revenge, the doc tries to make it look like Creach killed his wife's lover but the plan backfires and the big guy escapes from his cage.
Oops, sorry!! I was looking for the doc.
There you are, you dirty SOB! It's time to meet your maker and pay for your twisted ways!
The Creature is drawn to the ocean and we don't know what his fate will be, so, goodbye big guy, we'll miss you!.. Be back on Wednesday for another Dose of Dungeon Doom!
