Retro Trailer Imagines THE SHAPE OF WATER as a Universal Monsters Movie

By Christopher Webster [03.01.18]


Guillermo del Toro's Academy Award Nominated The Shape of Water gets the retro treatment from the Playback Collective.

Editor, designer Erick M. Solis says he's given the film the Universal Monsters treatment, combining audio from Creature From The Black Lagoon trailer, downgrading the quality to a black and white palette and adding a whole bunch of scratches, glow and image displacement to nail the 1950's look.


About the Shape of Water:
At a top secret research facility in the 1960s, a lonely janitor forms a unique relationship with an amphibious creature that is being held in captivity.
