Hello Pulp Friends,

it's that time of the year again... no, it's not Xmas yet, I meant it's Halloween time! :D
So, in the long tradition of TCM (that airs all classic horror movies all month along) I thought to re-run a classic collection of Classic Horror Movie illos I did a few years back, with a final surprise at the end of the month.
I know a few of you (yes, I am talking to those 4 or 5 of you who have known me for a while ;)) may have seen this already so pls don't spoil the surpirse. To everyone else, please enjoy my little tour in the B/W classic scary movies and tune in every day this October for a new illo :)

To start this marathon, I give you "CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON"!

Creature from the Black Lagoon
USA, 1954
directed by Jack Arnold
starring:
Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning, Antonio Moreno

An expedition sails up the Amazon River looking for a mysterious, legendary amphibious creature. Captured, the creature escapes and starts to seed terror. A masterpiece of the Fantastique with superb underwater sequences and two sequels.


Cheers,
Francesco

I love it!
Since having some green pool issues the Creature from the Black Lagoon has become the mascot/patron saint of my house.

Since my childhood days, the Creature from the Black Lagoon is one of my favourite monsters. And in my opinion, one of the coolest ever seen.
