Creature Review

I’m going to make this short and sweet, because there isn’t that much to say about “Creature,” a film that doesn’t even try to be a serious B grade horror movie throwback. Five good looking teenagers (or young adults) venture into the wild swamps of Louisiana to party it up, only to be stalked and killed by a vicious half man half alligator thing that’s been roaming the swamps for years.

That’s it. Not much to analyze there. It’s not like director Fred M Andrews and co writer Tracey Morse are trying to deliver an Oscar worthy picture, or even a worthy picture for that matter. They’re simply trying to exploit killing, sex, drugs, booze, religion and inbreed hicks.

I’m not going to bother going into the actor’s performances or the script because a movie like this requires neither. All I’ll say is that at least the actors are in on the joke.

Well, there you go. “Creature” might provide some B movie fun but I wouldn’t go as far as to put it in the “It’s So Bad It’s Good” genre. The people involved with this set out to make a bad movie and they certainly did.

No Star Rating Necessary
