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."

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

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

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.

One tiresome slog through one familiar swamp.

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

[It's so bad that] the footage should have been left in the swamp for the alligators to eat.

Ends up unexpectedly reserved, which keeps the film at least approachable but never remarkable. It's a weird feeling to be yawning during a movie that spotlights a half-gator/half-man menace.

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

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.

Tedious and overly complicated...

May have been intended as a homage of sorts to Jaws but it comes across as more like a ripoff of a film that is far, far, far out of its league.

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

Production designer Fred Andrews makes his directorial debut here and can't even manage coherency.

It is in no way a great movie. But it is a great reminder of what used to be so much fun about bad movies.

A seriously bottom-of-the-barrel horror effort...

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.

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

The rest of the film is all about the girls taking off their tops and getting tied up while the guys get chased around by a dude in a hokey alligator suit and monster mask.
