In my mind, I remember the name Creature to be associated with films like Aliens and Dune, however unlike the other movies, I had not seen Creature over and over since the day it was released, I saw it in the theater and that was all. I can't remember if it was the first movie I was spooked enough to walk out of or not, I don't recall whichever movie that was, however being that it might be that also added to my memory of it, since I had no memory of the actual storyline at all.
That being said, I decided to rewatch Creature to finally put it to rest and see if I still enjoyed it these days or not.
An alien creature over 200,000 years old has been resting on one of Saturn's moons. Two rival exploration companies land on the planet, the German's before the American's, but both crews start falling prey to the creature one astronaut at a time.
The creature takes two forms, one of these little mind controlling creatures that attach to your head and control your actions, and the second the large creature you see in the movie poster, very Alien'esque. Its apparent goal is to kill everyone, but it's smart enough to take over some bodies for use to sabotage equipment and lure others to their doom as opposed to attacking directly.
The worst effects in the movie is when the creature is "eating" a person, taking nibbles or bites of someone, just horrible. Effective use of smoke and lighting makes most effects easily bareable for fans of the genre. The one scene of nudity seems horribly thrown together for sheer use of nudity, as what it boils down to is the creature mind controlled her, made her nude, performed the scene, then put her back in her space suit to be found later by her crew. Mind-boggling to say the least how that scene got in there.
Klaus Kinski plays a smaller role in this movie for fans of his, but it's not too rivoting in my opinion.
