See also "Double Over" and "Monster"!
Classic horror is often actually more melancholy than scary, and the audience has a tendency to sometimes end up relating to and feeling more for the "monster" as a victim than the people, and humankind is revealed to be in truth more of a monster. This trait in particular is the true art of classic horror and is rarely seen in modern films. In Creature from the Black Lagoon, this is the case when Gill-Man, an innocent piscine amphibious humanoid creature who was simply trying to live his life in peace, is attacked by frightened men ... a common tale ... especially metaphorically.
