Universal has announced that their Creature From The Black Lagoon – Complete Legacy Collection set is coming to Blu-Ray. It includes Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954), Revenge Of The Creature (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). The first two were in 3-D and directed by the great Jack Arnold (and feature Nestor Paiva).
Revenge is finally making its way to Blu-Ray in 3-D. For me, the great benefit of this set will be having all three pictures in their original 1.85 aspect ratio. While the first two are among my all-time favorite films — and I’ve got a pile of Creature toys to prove it, Walks Among Us is a mess. But I’m looking forward to revisiting it in high definition. This stuff is essential, folks.

I keep hearing all these good things about the German Blu-rays of the Universal horror pictures from Koch Media, especially Tarantula (1955). And now, Koch has announced Revenge Of The Creature (1955), the second Creature movie, for Blu-ray release in August. This time, the 3D will be the red-green anaglyph kind in standard definition, making this not a true 3D Blu-ray. But to me, the appeal comes for the film itself in high-def and framed in its original 1.85.
Revenge Of The Creature is a good one — and a thousand times better than the one that came after it, The Creature Walks Among Us (1956).
Thanks to Dick Vincent for relaying the news. Isn’t that Reynold Brown artwork great?
