John Carpenter had planned to work again with "Universal" on their long-gestating remake of "Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)," but the film's box office failure killed those plans. As of 2017, the remake remains unmade, although speculation began again with the announcement of "Universal"'s "Dark Universe" brand. See more »

Sure, it's not the best horror film ever made, but it was fun. I'm sure that people who grew up with the original would like it better, that's to be expected. But I thought the movie was a good B-level movie with some creepy scenes and a few shocks, and let's not forget the cheese. Most of John Carpenter's movies fall into this category. Halloween was a bit different, but come on, even In The Mouth Of Madness had some cheesy parts, and it was plenty creepy. Most of his movies are just fun to watch, and when they're over, you forget them. A horror movie that truly disturbs people only comes once every few years. Most of them shouldn't be taken so seriously. Pop some popcorn, grab a beverage, put your feet up and have some fun with this one.
