Creature from the Black Lagoon is a 1992 pinball machine produced by Midway (under the Bally name).


  • Hitting both flipper buttons repeatedly after winning the "Punch the Peeping Tom" video mode will trigger the player punching the peeping tom so hard, it decapitates him. In addition, the word "Fatality" shows up. This is a secret reference to Midway's Mortal Kombat which was just a few months old after being released to the public in August of 1992.
  • This would be the first time Williams would make a pinball game based on the Universal Monsters property. Williams would re-use the Creature from the Black Lagoon for 1998's Monster Bash.
