“What was that?” (Assorted animal noises ensue.) You better get out your lever-action rifle and fire a few random shots into the water. Join this episode’s Grue-Crew – Chad Hunt, Daphne Monary-Ernsdorff, and Jeff Mohr – as they dive into the third and final adventure of Universal’s Gill-Man, The Creature Walks Among Us (1956).

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era

ANNOUNCEMENT
Decades of Horror The Classic Era is partnering with THE CLASSIC SCI-FI MOVIE CHANNEL, THE CLASSIC HORROR MOVIE CHANNEL, and WICKED HORROR TV CHANNEL
Which all now include video episodes of The Classic Era!
Available on Roku, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, AndroidTV, Online Website.
Across All OTT platforms, as well as mobile, tablet, and desktop.

The Creature is captured and turned into an air-breather by a rich mad scientist. This makes the Creature very unhappy, and he escapes, killing people and setting fires in the process.

 

To this day, all the Universal Monsters remain incredibly popular and beloved with The Gill-Man edging out the others as the fan favorite of many Monster fans. Released in 1954, The Creature from the Black Lagoon would introduce the amphibious “prehistoric beast” just as Abbott and Costello were breathing final life into Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll, and the Mummy. All three “Creature” films would be released within 3 years with the first two in 3D while the last did not receive the 3D treatment. The Classic Era Grue-Crew complete their coverage of the Gill-Man with this discussion and review of The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). (Don’t be alarmed when Jeff leaves for a while to get sandwiches.)

The Creature Walks Among Us is a strong finish to Universal’s trilogy of Gill-Man films. At the time of this writing, it is available to stream on The Roku Channel and on physical media as a Blu-ray in Creature From the Black Lagoon: Complete Legacy Collection and other Universal Monster collections.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next in their very flexible schedule, as chosen by Jeff, will be Stranger on the Third Floor (1940), considered by many to be the first film noir and starring Peter Lorre and Elisha Cook Jr. Is it horror? Well, it’s at least horror-adjacent.

Please let them know how they’re doing! They want to hear from you – the coolest, grooviest fans: leave them a message or leave a comment on the Gruesome Magazine YouTube channel, the site, or email the Decades of Horror: The Classic Era podcast hosts at feedback@gruesomemagazine.com

To each of you from each of them, “Thank you so much for listening!

FEEDBACK

11/07/2022

Dirk Rogers: I’m wondering if the new crystal lake series will introduce or even center around Jason’s father. It’s an untapped idea that has no legal entanglements and could really expand upon the Vorhees story. I’m so happy that the horror news is back on each week. Great job grue crew. Keep it up.

Chad White: Great show everyone.. lots of stuff here to be excited about.

10/24/2022

Renee St. Aubin: Awwww, one day I’m going to make one of these live streams!

10/10/2022

Chad White: Great show everyone! I’m looking forward to Five Nights at Freddy’s. they made it into a VR game and it is literally terrifying and it gave me anxiety, lol. I really liked Willys wonderland, but it had a lot of campyness, I hope they make it an intense horror instead of being campy…

Mason Campise: Keep up the great work!

10/03/2022

Don Joe: Thanks for another fun episode. I had to look away for the Halloween Ends trailer, don’t need those spoilers. Also, thanks Crystal for not spoiling Last of Us!

Meretneith: Sandra Bernhard was in AHS Apocalypse as a satanist.

FEEDBACK

Don Joe: Doc is going beast mode with the beard! Haha!  I do enjoy this new News segment and wish I'd discovered you guys sooner. Saw 10 - bring it on, I love this series so much.  I'd love a reboot (not happening, I know) to bring John Kramer back. I'm down with any King adaptation, no matter how good or bad it turns out, they're always interesting. All of those new streaming films look good but since I've never seen Orphan and ending got spoiled for me, I'm looking forward to watching them both now. Lisa Frankenstein - love the many takes on this story and how it has become it's own sub-genre of horror. GDT's COC (lol) - amazing, looks so good and makes me extra excited for my fav time of year.

“You mustn’t play with dead bodies. You’ve had your fun. Isn’t it enough? Isn’t killing five enough for one day?” Is five enough? You be the judge. Join your faithful Grue-Crew – Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, Crystal Cleveland, and Jeff Mohr  – as they check out this wild ride from Japan, Evil Dead Trap (1988).

A late-night TV presenter receives a snuff tape, in which a woman is brutally killed. She decides to take a crew out to a location indicated in the tape, but only death and despair await them

Evil Dead Trap is Chad’s pick and he is pleasantly surprised. What could have been a run-of-the-mill slasher turned out to be a big-time giallo with a generous dose of creepiness at the end. Crystal really, really liked Evil Dead Trap … a lot. She is impressed with the story, the acting, the effects, the clever and creative kills, and even some techniques that were before their time. Evil Dead Trap is a great giallo, one of the best giallo films Bill’s seen in a long time, and from a different culture as told through its own filter. Even though the film lost him at the end, he still calls Evil Dead Trap one of his top ten giallo films. Jeff also loves Evil Dead Trap, making the Grue-Crew’s support unanimous. He specifically points to the music, colors, and the crazy giallo all’italiana story.  

If you haven’t seen Evil Dead Trap, you really need to correct that oversight. Maybe you saw gray-market versions in years past and if that’s the case, it’s time you experienced it again. At the time of this writing, Evil Dead Trap is available to stream from Amazon Prime and other subscription and PPV services. If physical media is your thing, there is an Unearthed Classic Blu-ray of the film available. Be ready for a wild ride!

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Jeff, will be Lucio Fulci’s The House by the Cemetery (1981). Oh boy!
