A scientific expedition down the Amazon turns deadly when a half man/half sea creature is discovered in the water. Taking a page out of King Kong’s book, the menacing "Gill-Man" sets his sights on the prettiest member of the crew, scientific researcher Kay Lawrence (played by the late Julie Adams). An influence on countless thrillers and horror films from Jaws to Anaconda, the original Creature itself spawned two sequels and was easily one of the most popular of the first wave of 3D releases in the 1950s. A follow-up to Universal Pictures' successful 3D sci-fi outing of 1953, It Came from Outer Space, Creature reteamed director Jack Arnold, producer William Alland, and screenwriter Harry Essex. Arnold, working with cinematographer William E. Snyder, makes the most of 3D’s depth effects and places little emphasis on "comin’ at ya" gags. This provides the movie with a sense of limitless space (particularly in the underwater scenes) and an effective atmosphere of unknown danger. Great fun, this special 3D screening of Creature will be introduced by Bob Furmanek, founder of the 3D Film Archive and one of the world’s foremost authorities on the history of 3D. (JH)
