MOTW- The Creature

one of the finest and best men in a suit monsters ever.

he also has some fine taste in leading ladies as well, in all three movies.

I was fortunate growing up, because someone at Channel 2 KWGN was a monster movie fan.  I saw all three of the Creature movies several times, but I'll never forget seeing it the first time. 

it was on Sci Fi Flicks, a Friday night show that aired one "Outer Limits" episode and then a monster movie.  what a great way to scare the audience, since usually the "Outer Limits" episode was scarier than the movie that followed it.  the episode this time was "Tourist Attraction" which was also a water based monster, and then the great "Creature from the Black Lagoon" was up.  I liked 'em both!

As I said before,The Gill Man has got to be one of horror(&sci-fi)'s all-time iconic creature designs;after all,any time a film needs an amphibious fish-or-lizard man which character do they base their own design on...?;)
