“[…]’Cause we all stand between the jungle and the stars, at a crossroads. I think we better decide what brings out the best in humankind, and what brings out the worst, because it’s the stars or the jungle.”
The Creature from the Black Lagoon series was short lived. Already at just film three we’ve reached the end. It was the only entry in the series to not be shot in 3-D, audiences having grown disenchanted of the format by 1956, and it focuses less on action. It attempts to have a grand message about what makes the Creature and what makes people who they are but never offers up any actual answers.
