Universal have obviously taken good care of all their early horror films as this remastering for Blu Ray is amazingly good. You could hardly believe the film was made in the 50's. Add to that the edition of 3D, for the first time since its release in cinemas, which looks extremely good and is very effective.
Creature from the Black Lagoon is pretty much the foundation for most of the creature films that we know so well today (Alien, Jaws, Predator). However even today you can see the skill and devotion in creating this classic. The creature looks very good, and has obviously been copied many times over, and since most of the film is shot underwater it has a very otherworldly feel to it. From start to finish its just a polished masterpiece of classic hollywood cinema.
