In this engaging costume melodrama of skulduggery on the low seas set back in the 18th-century, the swamps of a small seaside town and the nocturnal activities of the towns' men provide the atmosphere and action. The Royal Crown suspects a bit of smuggling is going on in this locale, and they send Captain Collier (Patrick Allen) and his crew to check it out.

Audience Reviews for Captain Clegg (Night Creatures)
It's pretty obvious what is really going on in this movie, although they try to present it as a mystery. It's really predictable, but I liked the overall plot anyway. So, I'll say, I liked this movie, but it could have been better.
Peter Cushing is great as always as a a priest cum pirate. The fight scene alone is worth the tunnel sneaking and scarecrow shooting. The whole plot spins around anti-tax rum smuggling and sailors on land. Should have been more about the mulatto and the kid - that was like a GOONIES adventure in the making.
