You heard that right, everyone. From now on, instead of there being a
THEME OF THE WEEK there-there will be a THEME OF THE MONTH. This means three times the MISUNDERSTOOD fun as well as re-discovering and dedication for the misunderstood creatures we are honoring! It will also give you more time to find out about them.
This month, we are honoring THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954) along with his other undersea brothers and sisters who search for acceptance not only below the earth but more importantly above the seas’ watery abyss. Some of these creatures want to be loved, to thrive, to explore a whole new world (not to be confused with the Disney idea if you catch my drift)! Others crave domination over the seas much like HUMANOIDS OF THE DEEP (1980) who seek to dominate human women but we’ll touch base on that later.
THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON is one of those monsters that is rarely discussed and yet his image is used in many of the UNIVERSAL MONSTERS posters and merchandise. This Month we will change all that with a variety of posters, clips, reviews, and much more including this creature and it’s misunderstood undersea monster family.
It’s a new year here for CINEMA INSOMNIA and we would like to hear about what you think about THE CREATURE. Do you believe he is misunderstood? Which undersea monster is in your book the most misunderstood? Let us know in the comments on this site or our pages! Better yet, show us by sending us clips of your favorite undersea monster along with why you think they are misunderstood and we will share your findings.
If you would like to do any theme related art, post it on our wall or send it to us and it will be shared on our pages. There are so many ways to get involved, join us! You may also take a step further and post your favorite scene, clip, picture or poster of your favorite UNDERSEA CREATURE FEATURE on your Twitter or Instagram pages with #CIUNDERSEAMONTH and tag or direct send it to Cinema Insomnia and we will favorite and Retweet/Share your findings.
Let’s Warm Up, Stretch, Wait 15 minutes after we finish our last meal, Now Let’s Go UNDER THE SEA! Step over, Ariel, because here comes THE CREATURE OF THE BLACK LAGOON!
