Striking sequel
25 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are many moments to savor in this thrilling, intriguing follow-up to "Creature From the Black Lagoon." The lovely heroine (Lori Nelson) stares at the captured creature through the glass of the aquarium, two strangers in a man's world. She talks about her career while her peers have already married and had children while also feeling sorry for the creature, a lonely alien in civilization. Taking a swim in the Florida Everglades, (echoing the famed Julie Adams-Creature pas de deux in the original), the now-escaped "gill-man" watches from below, but she is joined by her lover (John Agar), who kisses her mid-scene. Later, she takes a shower in a motel, with the creature outside, in a chilling pre-"Psycho" sequence. Some of the dialogue is dated and stilted, and the creature costume this time looks worse for the wear - apparently goggles were inserted into the mask to make it easier for Rico Browning's underwater swimming. But great, eerie night-time photography at the end and just plain thrilling scenes make this a winning sequel.
