Every week, the local video store I frequent has an email special where they offer 1 free movie from a random category for those on the mailing list. Last week it was horror. Anyways, I usually take this time to rent something I wouldn't normally rent for one reason or another. This time I picked CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE. I wasn't expecting much of anything at all, just a run-of-the-mill 1970s drive in flick. But in spite of being a heavily washed out, severely panned and scanned transfer, with a title thats a blatant rip off of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and featuring a monster that's more than obviously just a guy in an ape suit, I found a cool forgotten little gem that's very well scripted, highly entertaining, and more than deserving of a top-notch DVD transfer! I love it when this shit happens!
