New Release Review - Creature


Directed by: Fred Andrews
Starring: Mehcad Brooks, Serinda Swan, Daniel Bernhardt, Sid Haig, Amanda Fuller

If movies have taught me one thing it's that you don't wanna go travelling through rural Louisiana.
If you have to get to New Orleans for Mardi Gras just stick to the freeway. The protagonists of "Creature" obviously don't watch too many horror movies as they go off the beaten track to investigate a legend about a half man half alligator.
When we finally see the manigator it looks pretty familiar, yes folks it's a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! I'm a sucker for a good monster, and an even bigger sucker for a bad monster like this one.
Does "Creature" distinguish itself from the SyFy channel fare? After all this got a theatrical release stateside, though only six people paid to see it. Well it doesn't in quality but in sleaziness it sets itself apart. In this aspect it harkens back to the good old days of exploitation movies when a taboo was considered a selling point. This movie features full frontal nudity, bestiality, and even some sister on brother hand job action. Oh, and Sid Haig as a sinister gas store owner. You have to have a sinister gas store owner in these movies, and Haig is as good as you'd expect from a veteran of this sort of trash.
Despite having a lot going for it, "Creature" isn't half as much fun as this review probably makes it sound. If twenty minutes were shaved off and things paced a bit quicker in the opening act it could have been a decent beer and nachos time-killer. As it is it's more like a SyFy original made by a Dutch porn director. And no, that's not half as much fun as it sounds either.
