Re: Creature from the Black Lagoon remake?

I dunno if a remake of Creature would work. Unlike the Mummy, Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, there really wasn't a character behind Creature. The appeal was a guy in a rubber swimsuit canoodling with Julie Adams in an erotic undersea ballet. The other characters Sommers and others reinvented had strong backstories. Creature never really had that.
