100 Things You Never Knew About the Creature
7 January 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I was one of the fortunate few to see the very first screening of this documentary. I had gone in with very little knowledge of the Gill-man but a deep appreciation for horror movies, and more appropriately classic monster movies.

The documentary explored every aspect of the Creature, how it came to be, and the phenomenon that continues its popularity today. The music and light-hearted comedy keeps the audience attention, while celebrity commentary and actor interviews show the impact of this classic monster.

I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of monster movies, or classic cinema as I'm sure everyone will learn numerous interesting facts they hadn't known before.
