FORMAT19 FOREVER//NOW > CINEMA
QUAD’s film curators Rebekah Taylor and Adam Marsh have selected a special selection of classic films inspired by some of the exhibitions at this year’s FORMAT festival. For more information, please see: https://formatfestival.com/exhibitions/
Screened to compliment Historian Denis Pellerin’s talk on Stereoscope, join us for this retro 3D experience with the follow up to the classic Creature From the Black Lagoon.
Back To The Black Lagoon! This time The Creature (John Agar) is captured by a team of researchers and transported to a holding tank in a Florida marine park. Once imprisoned, the 'Gill Man' becomes the subject of crude and cruel experiments conducted by his supposedly superior human captors. But the tormented Creature begins to emerge as a hauntingly beautiful alien and a female researcher (Lori Nelson) forms an uneasy emotional link with him. Soon they are both driven to break free of their respective 'prisons'. Now I wonder where Guillermo Del Toro gets his ideas from!!!
Revenge of the Creature is full of surprises, not the least of which is Clint Eastwood in his first screen appearance as a technician who has trouble holding onto a laboratory mouse....
