SHV - S05E10 - The Creature From The Black Lagoon.

The season finale of Universal Monsters has arrived, but we're going out with a bang. Enjoy this giant sized episode examining all aspects of "The Creature From The Black Lagoon." We'll look at how the real life horror of WWII briefly killed off the horror film and made way for the Sci Fi genre and how this film is a bit of a bridge between those two eras. How director Jack Arnold was pretty much the father of 50's sci fi, how and why 2 different actors played the creature, the interesting story of the suit creation and design itself, how this film was an innovator in so many different ways and so much more. We'll also spend some time looking at the legacy of the Universal Monsters franchise as a whole.
