The Creature from the Black Lagoon is back! This time he's captured by scientists and transported to an aquarium in south Florida. Naturally, he's attracted to the lovely female scientist and manages to escape and kidnap her, heading to Jacksonville, presumably to catch a Jaguars game. Written by

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.
