Creature was one of those flicks that was kinda fun and could have been a whole lot better -hell, it needed to be a hell of a lot better- but was mostly a jumbled mess that left us feeling cold and a bit pissy by the end.
It was an odd watch for us.
For as "not good" as the movie is, it's amazing to us that it got a Theatrical Release at all, when so many great indie Horror flicks barely ever see the light of day aside from being dumped on DVD.
We do not understand.
|"Aw hell no, here come the script!"|
That's the plot. You've seen it tons of times before, and done tons better. It was very reminiscent of House of 1000 Corpses plot-wise, except this one has a crazy inbred family guiding a group of morons to a Creature, instead of a Dr. Satan.
|It even has Sid Haig basically reprising his Captain Spaulding gig, sans make-up...|
The cast is a mixed bag; Sid Haig is always fun as hell to watch. The guy was born in 1939, and he's still on screen kicking ass, and looking nowhere near 72 years old. Eggs from True Blood (Mehcad Brooks) was good here too as a bad-ass Navy Seal who actually kinda saves the day. The girls were hot, and they all played their parts pretty well... the rest were all fair to middlin'. I still can't figure out what Pruitt Taylor Vince was doing in this movie. Maybe his Nephew was the key grip or something.
|He could be a marine, but I swear I heard them say Navy Seal.|
Don't even get us started on the ending(s)... One of which happened in a hole, off camera, and another which was meant to surprise, but just made no sense.
|At least she's handy... zing!|
Pay for it in Theaters if you want -some Horror peeps will probably have fun with it- but for most of us this is a "wait for cable" kind of movie. Even then, you will most likely flip the channel.
