* AccidentallyAccurate: Oddly, the drunken Riverboat captain's statement that the Creature is "stronger than that which you call evolution" was probably a more accurate explanation for how evolution actually works than the "scientists" who seem to believe that [[EvolutionaryLevels a "living fossil" like the creature is "less evolved" than more recent creatures.]] The truth is, such creatures happen because they've achieved a form that's more-or-less ideal to their environment, and any deviations would be out-competed.

* InformedAttribute: Kay is allegedly a scientist, but doesn't do a single solitary scientific thing for the entire movie. She's purely a damsel in distress who seems to be treating the expedition like a pleasure cruise.

'''''Creature From the Black Lagoon''''' is a Creator/{{Universal}} {{Horror}} film from 1954. Tells the story of "the Devonian man," or Gill Man, an amphibious, half man, half fish, creature that has existed since the age of dinosaurs in such a perfect condition that it has not had to evolve. An expedition is organized to go into [[TheAmazon heart of the Brazilian Jungle]] where "Evolution has stopped" to try and find a living specimen. Naturally, Gill Man is highly territorial and [[MarsNeedsWomen lonely]], killing and drowning anyone he can get his claws on. He's also highly intelligent; once the IgnoredExpert convinces the crew to leave while they can, Gill Man barricades the exit to the lagoon by toppling a tree so he can finish them off.
