Thorough and Entertaining!, 12 August 2004
Author: vikmetrang from NYC

Being a devoted monster movie fan, I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to see this well-made documentary. "Creature Feature" is packed with more information on the Creature from the Black Lagoon that you could ever want, and delivers it all in a fun, fast-paced and entertaining style. It's vivid visually and really comes to life thanks to the booming narration of actor Keith David (The Thing, They Live, There's Something About Mary, etc.).

What really sets this documentary apart is the rare footage and pictures of the Creature, including his debut appearance to the public on the Abbott & Costello Colgate Comedy Hour. Not only that, but it has probing interviews with cast members, screenwriter Arthur Ross, Creature fan and perennial Oscar-nominated actor Benicio Del Toro, and everyday fans shown at monster and sci-fi conventions.

For me, the greatest part of the doc was when the camera followed Julie Adams and Ben Chapman (the actor under the suit in the original) on a boat as they traveled down the Tallahassee in Florida where the film was shot 50 years ago ... and the place still looks the same! The two actors hadn't been there since the filming, and it really is a great, emotional sequence.

"Creature Feature" is well worth investing your time (and money) into -- whether if you're a hard-core fan of the classic horror movies or just an overall fan of the cinema.
