Creature dating from girl guide swamp
Instead of becoming a werewolf, Jackson transformed into a snake.
It has a long prehensile tail and can climb up walls like some varieties of lizard.And later in the film, in a brief, but beautifully filmed underwater scene, the Creature savagely drags the tantalizing "Playboy centerfold" down into the Freudian depths to his subterranean grotto -perhaps to hide her under his bed...where his mom can't find her. It's getting stale, I know.)"The Creature From the Black Lagoon" was directed by Jack Arnold ("The Incredible Shrinking Man"), who (from 1952 to 1960) directed a series of fantasy/horror films for Universal Studios, including "Revenge of the Creature" -this film's sequel.Arnold would certainly object to us reading too much symbolism in his gillman, but the Creature may not have achieved such enduring status in monster-mythology if not for the fears and anxieties of the movie-going audience of the '50s.The entity within the white lantern used several heroes, including hawkman, hawkgirl, firestorm, martian manhunter, aquaman and deadman to slow the rampage and to construct a new swamp thing based on the body of alec holland.They also won the 1985, 1986, and 1987 jack kirby awards for "best continuing series" for swamp thing.
