Charlotte Observer

Creature is refreshingly and intentionally silly, in an era when horror has devolved mostly into torture porn and high-tech, computer-generated assaults on our senses.

... heaps on the gore and the T&A ‒ genre staples ‒ and can best be described as "Swamp Thing" with teeth, razor-sharp teeth ... Delivers the goods in old-fashioned, knee-to-the-jugular jolts.

With dependably creepy character actor Sid Haig to goose things along as leader of the locals, "Creature" is delightfully dopey.

Creature has no merits to speak of but I am comforted by my ability to overcome my disorientation long enough to recognize how lacking Creature is.

Parents should have it on their Netflix instant queue, ready to buttress their "If you go to acting school, you COULD end up taking your clothes off for some hack for a movie like this."

An awfully made, awfully acted, awfully plotted, and awfully boring more. In a word, Creature is awful.

The script (if one was ever finished), was seemingly passed through a paper shredder, tossed in the air then randomly taped back together.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Assembles all the ingredients necessary for a tasty swampsploitation horror gumbo, but sabotages the meal with cheesy digital blur effects and a lame sinkhole ending that prophesied the movie's box office fate.

Common Sense Media

The casting of legendary character actor Sid Haig -- and a subtle mention of Haig's best movie, Spider Baby (1964) -- suggests some genre knowledge, but there's no inspiration in the cheap, lazy Creature.

The sort of Z-grade trash you expect to come across on Syfy whilst channel surfing late one night, not something you'd expect to pay good money to watch on the big screen.

Not even House of 1000 Corpses' Sid Haig hamming it up as a hillbilly patriarch can pull this out of the New Orleans swamp it's set in.

"Creature" should have gone straight to video. Since it's playing on a few big screens at least "Shark Night" could get some competition.

Deep in the swampy hearts and minds of some filmmakers, embarrassing stereotypes still fester, gathering moss and slime.

Doesn't throw in the kind of wit that can turn a formulaic creature feature into a pleasant diversion along the lines of "Lake Placid."

A sinkhole features prominently in the final confrontation between man and beast in 'Creature.' It would have been wiser to chuck the negative into it.

As uninspired as its generic title, Creature works hard at being a direct-to-DVD-quality monster movie.

There is a perverse enjoyment to be had from something this cheesy, although not enough of one that I can recommend sitting through it.
