Back to the Black Lagoon: A Creature Chronicle (2000)

**** (out of 4)

Terrific documentary covering the making of Universal's CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON as well as its two sequels. This was originally released with that film's DVD release back in 2000 but what makes this one stand out so much from many of the others in the series is that many of the original cast members are on hand to discuss the making of the film. Julie Adams, Ricou Browning and Ben Chapman are all on hand discussing the making of the film and the stories told include stuff like accidents on the set, the original look of the monster and of course how many of the stunts were done. Bob Burns, Skal, Bob Furmanek and Paul Jensen are also on hand to discuss their thoughts on the film and we even get Lori Nelson discussing the sequel. I think having many of the original cast members was a big plus here but you can't really blame those earlier docs for not containing this since those films were made back in the 30s. Overall I think the documentary gives you a great idea of what all happened while making the film and certain decisions that were made in regards to the sequels. Another major plus is hearing from those who actually saw the film in its original release. Hearing their stories of seeing it in 3D was great but also hearing about the hidden sexuality in the film was another interesting thing.
