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.

Some of the classic sci-fi props and gizmos in the movie are from Forbidden Planet (1956). Director/producer William Malone, a sci-fi fanatic, owns a collection of "Forbidden Planet" items (including Robby the Robot), and thought it would be fun to use some of them in his film. See more »
"Creature" is an overlooked classic.It's scary,exciting and really gory in places.The plot is somewhat similar to "Alien",but I don't care.I'm not asking about highly original script,I just want to be scared and entertained.Klaus Kinski is simply amazing,and he even becomes a zombie!There's plenty of gore and violence plus a little bit of sleaze.All in all if you like gory sci-fi horrors check out this forgotten bloodbath.My other recommendations:"Alien","Humanoids from the Deep","Star Crystal","Alien Predator","Galaxy of Terror","Alien Contamination" etc.
