lol … just watched this movie yesterday on Turner Classics … a bit corny by today’s standards, but was scary enough for it’s time
That movie scared the heck out of me when I was a kid (I was too young to have the Hell scared out).
That movie is one of the reasons I never learned to swim. Used to show it on the 3:00 movie after school in the 60’s and 70’s.
Watch this a couple of days ago and like the guy above said kinda corny but it was the best entertainment available on cable that afternoon, which is a crying shame but that’s a discussion for another day.
quite a set of lungs.
The creature was played by Ricou Browning during the swimming scenes. Julia Adams should out him as a sexual predator for touching her without her permission.

Love these old Movies..I built a Model of the Creature and the
Woman in the early 70’s…Got thrown out when I was in the USAF
Probably worth $5k now !!!!!
I don’t remember any races from my swim team days, but some moments from swim practice will be with me forever.
My neighbors had the CFTBL board game. Scared the shit out of me the first time I saw it when I was five. I didn’t see the movie until I went to college. I was really high, so it was hilarious.
My Dad had a copy of this on 8mm film. Fond memories from a simpler time
Bcattin, the Aurora kits have been repro’d several times since Aurora went under in ’77 or so. First by Monogram/Revell in ’83, then by Revell again and other companies since. Last time was about 5 years ago but I don’t think Revell did Creech in that run. Anyway, the only way an original is worth any real money is mint in original cellophane. An average built-up kit…even an original 1963 Creature…$20 if you look around.
Thirdtwin- There was a board game?
I played the pinball game and the slot machine game. Both fun. lol
In my first marriage I thought sure my bride was the woman from that film. It wasn’t until many years later that I discovered I had actually married the creature instead…
