Unbelievably cool unused LIFE Magazine photos from The Creature From the Black Lagoon make a splash!


The Creature From the Black Lagoon remains as one of horror’s most classic monsters and to this day still holds up as one of the coolest monster suites in cinematic history. Very rarely do we get to take an all new look at classic monster like the Gill-Man, and thanks to Kerry Gammill we get to see a set of unused photos that were taken for Life Magazine from the 1953 set of the film. The photos never made it into the issue but Kerry Gammill of Gammillustrations recently color corrected the copies of the images and they are absolutely gorgeous.

A scientific expedition searching for fossils along the Amazon River discover a prehistoric Gill-Man in the legendary Black Lagoon. The explorers capture the mysterious creature, but it breaks free. The Gill-Man returns to kidnap the lovely Kay, fiancée of one of the expedition, with whom it has fallen in love.

Take a look at the gallery below!

If you are ever attacked by a gorilla just sit back and relax while you enjoy the once in a life time feeling of your limbs being ripped off.
