Revenge of the Creature Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Revenge of the Creature is, of course, the sequel to Universal's fabulously successful [[Feature~V11478~The Creature from the Black Lagoon~creaturefromtheblacklagoon]]--and like its predecessor, the film was lensed in 3-D (though released "flat" in most theatres). Though the audience had seen the Gill-Man shot full of holes in the first picture, he still resides in the Black Lagoon in the sequel, apparently none the worse for wear. Two oceanographers ([[Performer~P8663~John Bromfield~johnbromfield]] and [[Performer~P76541~Robert B. Williams~robertbwilliams]]) capture the creature and put him on display at Florida's Ocean Harbor Park (actually Marineland of the Atlantic). Here the hapless Gill-Man is taught a few words of English by compassionate icthyologists [[Performer~P439~John Agar~johnagar]] and [[Performer~P52204~Lori Nelson~lorinelson]]. Eventually, however, the creature reverts to type, kills one of his captors and goes on a rampage. And once again, he manages to briefly abduct the heroine and carry her off. Not nearly as good as the first [[Feature~V162089~Creature~creature]], this followup is saved by the underwater photography of [[Performer~P165975~Charles S. Welbourne~charlesswelbourne]]--and by the effective performance by [[Performer~P83286~Ricou Browning~ricoubrowning]] as the Gill-Man. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
