A good movie for someone who likes cheesy monster flicks. It’s slow moving but I enjoyed the vintage fashion and the cheese factor of it all.

Revenge of the Creature is a follow-up of the and I read in one of Clint Eastwood's filmography, that he plays the character "Jennings" ( a lab assistant ) in the sequel.. fyi...M

One of the all time great creature/horror films of the 1950s. Up close the creature's eyes tell of an inhumane monster. Yet this man with the claws and scales seems to have the "hots" for the female star, Julia Adams. I wonder what he would do to her if given half a chance? Probably nothing she would live through. Great film with great moments of action and a wracking crescendo of music. All other films paled in comparison.

A historically intresting monster movie triumph. ( Kev's PICkS : For a perspective look at how the role of the 'heroine-meets-monster' has evolved in the movies...see the effect of progress by viewing "Alien" right after it., ...The Scream Queen replaced by The Woman Warrior !)

It seems that just like the guy in the movie Shame, gill-man here is also something of a sex-addict, as well._____ Having developed a strange carnal attraction for human females, gill-man is now lusting shamelessly (with drool on his lips) for a suitable sex-mate. And who could be a more ideal morsel to mate with than the busty, brunette, pin-up girl, actress Julie Adams who plays character Kay Lawrence._____ Supposedly set in the Brazilian Amazon (but really filmed in the Florida Everglades) this goofy, Sci-Fi/Monster flick from 1954 is actually kinda entertaining in its own laughable sort of way._____ In between all of the gill-man's incessant murdering, rampaging, and "Julie Adams" stalking that seemed to prevail in this film, director Jack Arnold actually took some time out from all of the monstrous commotion to quiet things down with several relaxed moments of tranquil, underwater footage that featured some of the exotic, aquatic animal-life that was present in the neighboring area.
