Then Is Now Podcast – Ep. 90 – Universal Primer – The Creature From the Black Lagoon Films

In our next installment that helps introduce people to Horror Films, Chris and I and special guest host Spency leap into the 1950s to discuss all three Creature from the Black Lagoon Films: Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954), Revenge of the Creature (1955), and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). We dive (no pun intended) into a lot of behind the scenes information, as well as some deep analysis of the themes presented and we think you’ll be surprised about our opinions of the sequels! Don’t forget to also check out our special Flickr Gallery of newspaper ads and articles from the release of each film! The links are in the show notes! If you haven’t seen the Creature films, you really should check them out as they are fun, good-old fashioned monster movies!
