Jack Arnold, USA, 1954, 79 minutes, PG

What distinguished Jack Arnold’s pictures from mutant spinoffs/knockoffs is even more imperative to sci-fi today than it was in 1954: wonderment. A much more antic, exploitative experience than the Frankenstein/Wolfman/Mummy/Dracula pictures it stands alongsideCreature from the Black Lagoon perfectly typifies the transition from older, more European horror styles into bloodthirsty schlock and ever-cheaper thrills.

“Archetypal 50s science fiction—light on brains and heavy on sexual innuendo. But director Jack Arnold has a flair for this sort of thing, and if there really is anything frightening about a man dressed up in a rubber suit with zippers where the gills ought to be, Arnold comes close to finding it.”Chicago Reader

Cast Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning
