Film: Revenge of the Creature
Oh hi!

Revenge of the Creature is a Universal Horror film from 1955.

After one year of the events of Creature from the Black Lagoon, another group of people arrive at the Black Lagoon to catch the Gill Man. They are successful, and the creature is taken with them to an oceanarium for study. As Gill Man is subjected to various tests, it develops interest on the ichthyologist Helen Dobson. Sure enough, Gill-Man escapes his containment and later kidnaps Helen in a typical fifties monster movie fashion.

Features the first film appearance by Clint Eastwood, as the lab technician Jennings.

After one more sequel, The Creature Walks Among Us, the franchise came to an end.
