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.
