MM/SKM: The Creature from the Black Lagoon

Creature from the Black Lagoon statue: When Marilyn Monroe watched The Creature from the Black Lagoon she had a sympathetic tone towards the monster stating he just wanted to be loved. Many people had different feelings towards this hideous monster. After watching this movie a couple of times I started to have the same feeling towards the monster as Marilyn Monroe. Why, you may ask? Because he did not know any better. A monster who has lived his entire life in the Amazon suddenly faces people who he has never seen before. Killing off the team of scientists that have invaded his land one by one we don’t get to see the creature until much later. As we watch the scientists on a boat with the monster swimming underneath or him hiding in plain site we feel threatened by him. The Creature from the Black Lagoon is a true terror and a reminder that we should be weary of our surroundings when we travel.
