A crew of scientists arrives on a far, cold planet to examine archaic artifacts of unknown origin. They discover that their German enemies already have a ship there. When they seek their help after a failed landing, they only find the Germans' bodies, obviously slaughtered by one of the archaic creatures, awoken to new life. Now the alien is after them.

Of course, this isn't a very good movie. In fact, it's pretty bad but I'm a
whole different kind of movie-critic when I watch movies like this.
Everybody needs some brainless and fun films to relax from time to time and
William Malone's Creature is the perfect film for that. Creature is an
shameless ripoff of Alien and it also stole several elements from John
Carpenter's The Thing, but I hardly think that's a reason to ignore it
completely. From the beginning of this picture you can easily point out
those characters who're going to die but that's ok. You stay in your seat
just to see in wich horrible ways they come to an end. These are the moments
that make this film worth watching. Especially if you like a good share of
blood, guts and gore. I tell you, some of the scenes are rated pretty high
on the "vomit-scale". So, if you like to see heads flying around and love to
see faces being ripped off...Creature is your cup of tea. All together,
there are 2 major reasons to check this film out. The first one is the
amazingly good musical score. I wasn't able so far to find out who made it,
but I don't think they're big names in the field seeing the status of this
flick. The score was a pleasant surprise and worth checking out. And last
but not least... KLAUS KINSKI !! This guy is ( was...sorry ) a great actor.
Without even trying he beats all the other acting-performances. Klaus
clearly amused himself while playing the role of Hans Rudy Hofner and his
own German accent really works here. I expected his role to be a little
bigger but that's ok, the few times he's on screen are the most memorable
ones. But it ain't really a big honor to be the best actor in this cast,
though. All the others suck pretty bad. Wendy Schaal is very cute in her
role of Beth but she can't act very well. That's ok, the girl who plays
Susan can't act at all and above that she looks like David Bowie did during
the 80's...and that's NOT a compliment !! I'm not even bothering to mention
the rest of the cast. Oh, there is one last thing worth checking out on
Creature. The very very stupid confession of Mrs. Bryce (Diane Salinger)at
the end ...man, that's got to be the most ridiculous plot-twist I ever saw!!
I laughed silly with that....4 out of 10
