  1. Nestor Paiva showed up in a lot of old horror and science fiction movies. Some of them, like this one, were good and others (They Saved Hitler’s Brain) not so good; but he always gave a good performance.


  2. John D.:
    Although this series (there were 3 creature flicks) came along late to the Universal studios stable, this has always been my favorite monster.
    The backstory of the man in the “suit” (Ricou Browning) is a great story by itself.

    And they used to make a fantastic model of the creature (Aurora made a whole set of Universal’s movie monsters)., and THIS one glowed in the dark (if you selected the parts from the kit.

    Truth be told, watching a bathing suit-clad Julie Adams was VERY easy on my young eyes…lol.
    (And the creature liked her too)

    Very good choice.


    • Oh yeah, Julie Adams’ presence in this movie definitely made it more memorable. I really liked the first two Creature movies. The third one was pretty weak, but it was still watchable.
