Quotes

Tom: Doctor, I was thinking... just the work that you've done with the crocodiles and taking them back along the evolutionary path and making them into fish would be enough to win you world acclaim.
Dr. Simond Trent: Yes, but acclaim... that's nothing. To create life, to move it up and down the evolutionary path... that's something. Something I don't you quite appreciate, Tom.

It kinda hurts.
26 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't let the title deceive you, there is no "curse" and there is practically no "swamp creature." I'm pretty forgiving when it comes to B-Horror/Sci-Fi movies but this one falls faster into the void of "total crap" than Jodie Foster's film career. Curse of the Swamp Creature wants to have a lot of things (i.e. plot, harrowing experiments, betrayal), instead it manages to drag 80 mins of your life through a bed of rusted nails that's better used to inflict serious retinal and cerebral damage unto your worst of mortal (and/or immortal) enemies. The only thing in this movie that made me smile was when one of the characters kindly asked in a mono tone voice, to be pulled out of the quick sand. If you can skip to that part, do so; the acting is so bad you'll wish the quick sand was real. On the bright side I was able to read my Disagea: Hour of Darkness strat. guide. Watch this only if you're extremely forgiving or you've got some reading material to finish up.
