The Creature is captured and turned into an air-breather by a rich mad scientist. This makes the Creature very unhappy, and he escapes, killing people and setting fires in the process.

To this day, all the Universal Monsters remain incredibly popular and beloved with The Gill-Man edging out the others as the fan favorite of many Monster fans. Released in 1954, The Creature from the Black Lagoon would introduce the amphibious “prehistoric beast” just as Abbott and Costello were breathing final life into Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll, and the Mummy. All three “Creature” films would be released within 3 years with the first two in 3D while the last did not receive the 3D treatment. The Classic Era Grue-Crew complete their coverage of the Gill-Man with this discussion and review of The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). (Don’t be alarmed when Jeff leaves for a while to get sandwiches.)

The Creature Walks Among Us is a strong finish to Universal’s trilogy of Gill-Man films. At the time of this writing, it is available to stream on The Roku Channel and on physical media as a Blu-ray in Creature From the Black Lagoon: Complete Legacy Collection and other Universal Monster collections.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next in their very flexible schedule, as chosen by Jeff, will be Stranger on the Third Floor (1940), considered by many to be the first film noir and starring Peter Lorre and Elisha Cook Jr. Is it horror? Well, it’s at least horror-adjacent.

Jeff lives smack dab in the middle of the cornfields of Iowa and is a long-time horror fan. His first remembered encounters with the genre were The Wizard of Oz, Tarzan gorilla chases, and watching the first broadcast of The Twilight Zone episode, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." While he now qualifies as an old fart, he strives to be an Old Boy. Paraphrasing Robert Bloch, he has the heart of a small boy. He keeps it in a jar on his desk. Jeff has written for and SQ Horror Magazine. He currently writes for Gruesome Magazine and is a co-host of the Decades of Horror podcasts - The Classic Era, 1970s, and 1980s - and the Gruesome Magazine Podcast.
