Throughout the 1950’s there were quite a few Creature Features that have continued to inspire generations. Consider this film, originally in 3D with a initial scene of a dancer being thrown at the viewers.
The story surrounds Gerald McTeam who breaks his engagement to Kitty Murray shortly after he is called to Scotland for family business. Kitty travels to the Scottish castle where Gerald went knowing her fiancé was in some type of trouble. Kitty finds a mysterious forbidden tower room, a hedge maze that is locked by a gate, secret passages, with a very unique creature.
The film was based loosely upon phylogeny, the evolutionary development of an organism. Films such as The Maze inspired creative minds to delve deeper into the science to prove or disprove the possibility of a creature feature entering real life society.
Advances in phylogenics has had a positive impact increasing production in fisheries, tracing a disease to track the source and transmission, as well as being a critical component to the development of new medications and gene therapy.
