The Creature From The Black Lagoon Gets a Makeover

Posted on May 5, 2014 at 5:27 pm by Jess Hicks

Universal has been toying with the idea of updating the classic monsters for years and who could blame them? The monsters save Universal from bankruptcy multiple times and inspired the horror genre as we know it today. The last report on the update we got was they were moving forward but it would be with The Mummy.

Today Shock Till You Drop posted a picture of what Spectral Motion had previously modeled the Creature to look like in a possible remake. Obviously that remake has since been stuck in limbo but Creature Features FX museum in Burbank, California  they have the maquette of the revamped Creature. Bare in mind this is all just speculation and there is no confirmation on the remake or that this would be a final product, it’s just fun.

After looking it over I’ve decided I like the design, it’s a good homage to the original design but it also has it’s own flare. I really like the tail and the hands in particular! As for revamping the classic monsters, I’m not opposed to it if it is done in the same light as the originals and not in say…the Van Helsing way.
