Critic Reviews for Captain Clegg (Night Creatures)

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • Unleashes Hammer's trademark Gothic style on a dynamic genre mix: part pirate film, part smuggler thriller, part shadowy small-town crime conspiracy.

Audience Reviews for Captain Clegg (Night Creatures)

    Part of an 8 film set of Hammer horror. The poster seems to reference skeletal horses and riders such as appeared in some Georges Melies' and other early silent horror films. I looked forward to how the British studio handled this effect. However, the black costumes with white skeletons painted on shot mostly in a dark forest did not blend well to sell the illusion, and when they were shot in a studio with Universal's Invisible Man like effect then superimposed on scenery it also appeared shaky. Several stock cast and crew of Hammer are involved such as Cushing, Reed, and Hinds. The 18-century coastal town in England is a somewhat unique setting. The antagonism between the villagers and the soldiers is well played. The drama is a bit dull, but when you figure out the twist (involving pirates) the pieces begin to fall into place. Even though the skeletal Marsh Phantoms do not ride to inspire fear in other races, but in those who support the authority of the crown, it suggests an uncomfortable parallel.

    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.
