Take-Home Horror: The Creature from the Black Lagoon Legacy Collection
Hey there, Creepy Peeps! It’s time for another Take-Home Horror, where I talk about the special features on the DVDs/Blu-rays in my collection! If you saw my most recent haul video, which I will link below, you saw that I recently acquired a Creature from the Black Lagoon Complete Legacy Collection! Apparently, this is a thing Universal did for all of their classic movie monsters and I just now found out about it. So, rest assured, I will be collecting the other DVDs as time goes on!
But for now, here are the goodies included in the Creature edition of this Legacy Collection!
- Production Photography
This is a pretty commonplace feature on most DVDs/Blu-rays. The photos are totally cool, but it really just makes me wish I had them in physical forms, like in a book or something. I’m an old school kind of chick, I like to be able to hold stuff like that…haha!
- Back to the Black Lagoon Documentary
This is a pretty detailed documentary which covers all three Creature films! Of course, the first Creature from the Black Lagoon is covered the most, especially since the doc covers the process of casting and re-writing the script that finally led to the film that we know today. I liked how the doc covered production aspects like how the suit was made, how they filmed under water (and in 3D), and the score of the movie.
- All three Creature movies with Commentaries
Phew! These commentaries are so INFORMATION HEAVY! Which is totally a good thing, don’t get me wrong, but just make sure you are familiar with the films before you watch them with the commentaries on, because it is just so full of facts and history, there really isn’t anytime to pay attention to what’s going on in the movie. I will say, though, if all the Legacy Collections have commentaries like this, I need to get my hands on all of them! They are great for anyone who likes horror film history!
- Theatrical Trailers
Again, a common feature found on DVDs…nothing groundbreaking. Although it is fun to see trailers from back in the day, like these ones on the DVD, and see how trailers have evolved over the decades. Trailer editing is pretty much its own art form now, I think!
Well, there you have it kiddos, another Take-Home Horror for the books! I can’t wait to get my hands on more of these Legacy Collections in the future, I’ll leave an Amazon Affiliate link to the DVD I reviewed in this post down below. Also, let me know in the comments if you own any of these collections! How do you like them?
