Director: Fred Andrews. Review: Adam Wing.
Any film that goes by the name of Creature is already displaying an enormous lack of creativity, and after ten minutes in the company of Fred Andrews’ shocker your worst fears will be realised. It takes just 45 seconds for the filmmakers to present us with our first dose of nudity, and one minute later we are witness to our first kill. It’s the pre-credit death sequence that graces pretty much every teen horror movie made today, and the lack of originality doesn’t stop there. Before the three-minute mark arrives we are introduced to a group of beautiful (infuriating) teenagers setting themselves up for the slaughter, and before you ask the question, yes, one of them is black.
Six minutes pass by before we meet the first of our weird locals, who mutters manically as the Scooby gang stops off for petrol. In the store they are greeted by a familiar bunch of hillbilly folk who warn of impending doom. Thankfully though, the teenagers aren’t smart enough to take their advice and choose instead to mock the random newspaper articles littered about the place, depicted death and disaster for all who stay there. So we have nudity, our first kill, dumb teenagers (one black), weird locals and warnings of trouble ahead. All of which takes place in the first ten minutes. Having said that, who said horror movies have to be original in order to entertain? We only have to wait 44 minutes before a little girl on girl action, and as far as silver linings go, that’s pretty much all I’ve got...Continue review.
