Review 4K Movie

When discussing the harmfulness of human impact on the environment, the most frequently mentioned are ozone holes or the greenhouse effect. While the almost daily extermination of plant and animal species is taken for granted. However, there are virgin places on our planet, where it is extremely difficult for the human foot to set foot for objective reasons. Consequently, there is no room for desolation. The Amazon basin with its countless tributaries, bays and lagoons is a place still inhabited by strange creatures unknown even to the world's greatest biologists. The Selva of South America's largest river is home to inhabitants, many of whom have survived from prehistoric times almost unchanged. In one of the lagoons of the Amazon, the heads of the company Universal settled the creature, which in the future will have a place in the pantheon of legendary monsters, spawned by human thought.

One of the ever-popular themes for horror movies - a kind of monster, often of alien origin, purposefully exterminating a group of people trapped in a confined space. Legendary world screen hits like Ridley Scott's Alien, which have captivated many generations of viewers, have not really invented anything unseen before. One of the latest worthy pictures in Universal's classic series presents a familiar standard of horror that could be called foundational. In a remarkably beautiful Amazonian lagoon, nicknamed Black by the local fishermen, lived a mysterious creature that defied animal species classification. A creature that breathed equally freely both in the water and on land. It probably fed on large fish and was dealing with humans for the first time. This creature would have continued to swim peacefully through its backwaters, if it had not unwittingly become the cause of scientific interest.

Well familiar from Alexander Belyaev's brilliant film "Amphibian Man", Ichthyander was the result of an experiment and was very far from the predatory way of life. The Gillman from Jack Arnold's film also does not look like a bloodthirsty fiend. This creature is found to have the rudiments of intelligence, for it had the ability to immediately pounce on the curious scientists who arrived in the lagoon in search of fossil remains. To this day, the spectacular quality of the footage reveals an amazing picture of underwater life. In its backwater, the giant creature feels like a sovereign master, but seeing the girl floating serenely on the surface, it experiences curiosity mixed with excitement. The creature is unable to speak, but in perplexed eyes reads fear of an unexplored species remotely resembling herself.

The motivation of the scientists who swam into the silent lagoon is clear. The study of the fossilized remains of an unidentified creature led to tragedy: during the absence of the leader, someone or something brutally massacred the two members of the group. Thus, the young biologists were prepared in advance to face an unknown attack. According to a familiar pattern, the group is sure to find an ambitious lover of rare critters, ready at any cost to exterminate them. Inevitably there will be and pretty girl, whose true purpose is reduced to hysterical cries, incidentally, quite feigned. In Jack Arnold's picture, people are united by a common goal: to solve the mystery of the found remains and sail away from the terrible place. But even the danger of encountering an unknown beast is not able to drown out the quite natural urge for profit. The frogman is quite adept at defending its freedom, and even a powerful harpoon arrow can do little damage. Why not just leave the creature alone with its lagoon, if the journey has already been marred by several deaths?

In the course of the mutual hunt, the creature's reluctance to show total aggression somehow slipped by unnoticed. More than once or twice the creature could have torn apart the charming Kay, but instead it dragged the girl into the grotto. The lagoon creature's behavior could answer the question of its own nature. Humans invaded foreign territory with harpoon guns and stupefying powder to boot. After that, can scientists really vent their rage on a creature that has lived in its own backwater for a hundred years without harming anyone in the process? The half-dead creature hadn't harmed the girl, but it had pounced on the men itself-so it was well aware of the source of the threat. Educated and intelligent people, alas, have demonstrated convincingly why there is no end to the extermination of animals on our planet. Anything that poses a potential threat must be exterminated - a central tenet of the dominant organism. Is it any wonder that the creature learns this model of behavior on the fly and with each victim looks more and more like an enraged animal?

Talking about morality in a classic horror movie eventually fades into the background. It is much more interesting to pay tribute to the skillfully executed creature, which logically joins the group of monsters that has terrified viewers of all ages for nearly a century. After all, Frankenstein's monster wasn't born to do evil to the human race, either. The creature from the Black Lagoon was largely created by those people who were unwilling to leave it alone and determined to capture it at all costs. "Evil always returns to the one who produces it" - the justice of this truth needs no further confirmation. The devilish version of the amphibian man, of course, loses in effect to the legendary Dracula, the brainchild of Frankenstein or the Mummy of Imhotep, but it has an unbreakable trump card: the creature from the Black Lagoon is a child of nature itself, a frightening confirmation that the Amazonian rain forest can hide hundreds of unknown organisms, which are by no means inclined to submit to human aggression. The most famous cinematic outgrowth of the rainforest can rightly be considered a monster that laid the foundations for the methodical extermination of arrogant scientists who, despite their intelligence, remain guests on planet Earth.
