Humber Street Gallery + HIC: CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON
October 24 @ 6:30 pm£6
At Humber Street Gallery: BUY TICKETS
The first of two screenings in partnership with Humber Street Gallery will explore evolutionary alternatives to homo-sapiens through prosthetics and special effects mastery in 20th-century cinema.
One of the most iconic science fiction movies of all-time, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON is a groundbreaking classic showcasing Hollywood magic at its best. When scientists exploring the Amazon River stumble upon a ‘missing link’ connecting humans and fish, they plan to capture it for later study. The creature has plans of his own, however, inspired by the lead scientist’s beautiful fiancée. Well-acted and directed, and with Bud Westmore’s brilliantly designed monster, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON remains a masterpiece not only of the genre, but of all time.
Starring Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning
