Plot

A geology expedition in the Amazon uncovers fossilized evidence of a link between land and sea animals in the form of a skeletal hand with webbed fingers. Expedition leader Dr. Carl Maia goes to see his friend Dr. David Reed, an ichthyologist who works at a marine biology institute. Reed persuades the institute's financial backer, Mark Williams, to fund an expedition back to the Amazon to look for the remainder of the skeleton. They go aboard a tramp steamer called the Rita, which is captained by a crusty old salt named Lucas. The expedition consists of David, Maia and Williams, as well as Reed's girlfriend Kay Lawrence and another scientist named Dr. Thompson. When they arrive at Dr. Maia's camp, however, they discover that his entire research team has been mysteriously killed while he was away. Lucas suggests it was done by a jaguar, but the others are unsure. The audience is privy to the attack upon the camp, which was committed by a living version of the fossil skeleton the scientists seek.

The excavation of the area where Maia found the hand turns up nothing. Mark is ready to give up the search, but David suggests that perhaps thousands of years ago the part of the embankment containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water and was washed downriver. Lucas says that the tributary empties into a lagoon known as the "Black Lagoon," a paradise from which no one has ever returned. The scientists decide to risk it, unaware that the amphibious "Gill-man" that killed Dr. Maia's assistants earlier has been watching them. It, taking notice of the beautiful Kay, follows the Rita all the way downriver to the Black Lagoon. Once the expedition arrives, David and Mark go diving to collect fossils from the lagoon floor. After they return, Kay goes swimming and is stalked underwater by the gill man, who then gets briefly caught in one of the ship's draglines. Although he escapes, he leaves behind a claw in the net, revealing his existence to the scientists. For the techno single by Moby, see Thousand (single). ...

Subsequent encounters with the gill man claim the lives of two of Lucas' crew members, before the gill man is captured and locked in a cage on board the Rita. He escapes during the night and attacks Dr. Thompson, who was guarding him. Kay hits the gill man with a lantern; driving him off before he can kill Dr. Thompson. Following this incident, David decides they should return to civilization, but as the Rita tries to leave they find the entrance blocked by fallen logs, courtesy of the escaped gill man. While the others try to remove them Mark is mauled to death trying to capture the creature single-handed underwater. The monster then abducts Kay and takes her to his cavern lair. David, Lucas, and Dr. Maia give chase to try and rescue her; ultimately she is saved and the beast shot. Riddled with bullets and stabbed in the heart by David's dive knife, the gill man stumbles into the water and is last seen sinking into the depths of the Black Lagoon.

Novelization

The actual film was novelized in 1977, in a paperback novel written by author Ramsey Campbell under the pseudonym of "Carl Dreadstone," as part of a short-lived series of books based on the classic Universal horror films. It offers a completely different origin for the Gill Man, who in this version of the story is gigantic, almost as big as the Rita herself, weighing in at 30 tons, and is both coldblooded and warmblooded, is a hermaphrodite, and also possesses a long whiplike tail. The gigantic creature is dubbed "AA," for "Advanced Amphibian," by the expedition team members. After slaying most of the team members (see below), destroying a Sikorsky helicopter, and kidnapping Kay more than once, the creature is killed by the crew of a US Navy torpedo boat. A novelization (or novelisation in British English) is a work of fiction that is written based on some other media story form rather than as an original work. ...

The novel also differs greatly where the human characters of the story are concerned. Only David Reed and Kay Lawrence remain the same. Mark Williams is a German man named "Bruno Gebhardt," and dies not as a result from drowning but by the monster falling on him. Lucas is named "Jose Goncalves Fonseca de Souza" and is a mostly sympathetic character until his suggestion of throwing the wounded and unconscious Reed to the monster makes an enraged Gebhardt/Williams throw him to the beast instead. Dr. Thompson and Dr. Maia both die grisly deaths whereas in the movie they survive; Maia is eaten by the monster, and Thompson is impaled on a long tree branch flung at him by the creature like a spear (in an apparent nod to a deleted scene from Revenge of the Creature wherein the Gill Man killed a guard in this fashion).

Remake

In 1982 John Landis was keen on getting Arnold to direct a remake of the film, and Nigel Kneale was commissioned to write a screenplay.[1] Kneale completed the script, which involved a pair of creatures, one destructive and the other calm and sensitive, being persecuted by the US Navy.[1] A decision to make the film in 3-D led to the film being cancelled by producers Universal, both for budgetary concerns and to avoid a clash with another 3-D film they had in production, Jaws 3-D.[1] In 1995, Universal gave Peter Jackson the option to either remake King Kong or Creature From The Black Lagoon. Jackson chose King Kong, as seeing it on television when he was nine years old had originally inspired him to become a filmmaker.[2] John David Landis (born August 3, 1950) is an American movie actor, director, writer, and producer. ...

In December 2001, following the success of The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, Gary Ross signed on to write and produce the remake with his father, Arthur A. Ross, one of the original's writers. He told The Hollywood Reporter, "The story my father wrote embodies the clash between primitive men and civilized men, and that obviously makes it a fertile area for re-examination."[3] In August 2002, Guillermo del Toro, a fan of the original was attached as director.[4] Because of his commitments to numerous other projects, Universal was forced to go without del Toro as director, and hired Tedi Sarafian (credited on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) to write a script in March 2003.[5] 2001 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December Events: December 2 - Enron files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection five days after Dynegy canceled a US$8. ...

In October 2005, Breck Eisner signed on as director. "As a kid, I remember loving Jack Arnold's original version of this film," he explained. "What I really want to do is update an iconic image from the '50s and bring in more of the sci-fi sensibility of Alien or John Carpenter's The Thing."[6] Ross said in March 2007 the Gill-man's origin would be reinvented, with him being the result of a pharmaceutical corporation polluting the Amazon.

The film was delayed by the 2007-08 Writers Guild of America strike, and Eisner put a remake of The Crazies on his priority. Once he finishes filming that, he will begin filming Creature from the Black Lagoon in Manaus, Brazil and on the Amazon River in Peru. Eisner was inspired to shoot on location by Fitzcarraldo, and the boat set has been built. Eisner continued to rewrite the script, which will be a summer blockbuster full of "action and excitement, but [still] scary". Eisner spent six months designing the new incarnation of the Gill-man with Mark McCreery (Jurassic Park, and Davy Jones's designer). The director said the design was "very faithful to the original, but updated", and that the Gill-man will still be sympathetic.[8] This article or section contains a plot summary that is overly long. ...

Legacy

  • In The Seven Year Itch, Tom Ewell and Marilyn Monroe come out of a theatre showing Creature from the Black Lagoon. Dialogue: 'What did you think of the movie?'/'I felt sorry for the creature'/'What did you want him to do, marry the girl?'.
  • Creature From The Black Lagoon was later made into a pinball game, designed by John Trudeau (AKA "Dr. Flash"), and released in 1992 by Midway (under the Bally brand name). This game has a 1950s drive-in / retro theme. It also features such 50s classic songs like Rock Around the Clock, Get a Job, and Summertime Blues. Completing side missions in the pinball game causes the screen to display "Universal Presents... Creature from the Black Lagoon", and then requires the player to chase after the monster just like in the film. The game sold 7,841 units.
