    Not very good, and the poster is a poster of lies.

    Completely transforming the prehistoric horror of Black Lagoon into pre-hysteric, low-fi sci-fi, this Creature walks a fine line between B-Movie thriller and Z-Movie carp, er, crap. Okay, remember that sympathetic monster from 1954? Just two years later, he gets re-captured and sliced and diced into a walking depressed Merman. They literally blind him into rage with science. Its unintentionally done for pure laughs at this point, with the title character wearing a trench coat as he lurches toward his next victim with hilarious results. In this unfortunate continuation of the Universal horror franchise, the Creature gets captured and turned into an air-breather by a rich mad scientist. By this point, director Jack Arnold was literally out of the picture. Screenwriter Arthur Ross, however, stayed on board to cook up a Z-Grade tale so ludicrous that even the 3D technology got smart and sat this one out! Bottom line: Ewe Lagoon

    Third entry in Universal's Monster series Creature of the Black Lagoon series still has the power of the first two classics, but this one lacks substance. Where the first two succeeded in creating something wonderful, frightening and above all classic, this third effort is a good conclusion, but it lacks in parts. I enjoyed this film very much, and I did think that it was a perfect conclusion, but of the three films, this is the weaker ones. The concept was a good one, but unlike the other two, this one lacked any real thrill, suspense and it was pretty slow in some parts. The acting on the other hand, is wonderful, and makes up for the slight lack of substance to the overall story. However as far sequels are concerned, The Creature Walks Among Us is a pretty good conclusion despite its flaws. Fans of the first film will most likely enjoy this third and final entry in the series. The special effects are wonderful and like all the others in the series, it's one of the high points of the film. The film is entertaining for what it is, and it does have the elements that made the first two memorable, but the films feels a bit less inspired this time around. I felt like the plot was not as elaborate, and the concept, though good, could have been very much improved. For what it is, The Creature Walks Among Us is a good final entry to a classic franchise. Even though it's less strong than the firs two, this sequel is still very much entertaining and a must see for classic horror movie fans.

    The synopsis says that this was the third Creature from the black lagoon movie, but I thought it was the second, oh well. This movie is a lot like the first, but slightly worse.
