The film is the sequel to the 1954 film Creature from the Black Lagoon and follows a team of scientists who capture the creature and bring it to a Florida aquarium, only for it to escape and wreak havoc on the local community.
Agar delivers a solid performance as the lead scientist, adding a sense of determination and urgency to the film’s narrative.
Nelson also delivers a strong performance as the female lead, adding a sense of danger and tension to the film’s story.
The film’s impressive underwater photography and special effects, particularly in its portrayal of the creature, create a sense of wonder and horror, with the added benefit of featuring several impressive action scenes.
