This movie was filmed partly on the island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Unfortunately, the directors didn't pay enough attention to some of the local speaking "extras" who, in the scene with the young boy in the town of Soufriere, one of the locals curses a certain part of his mother's reproductive anatomy in the local Creole dialect - Patois. Oops!!! See more »
Tthe Beretta M9 wasn't developed until 1976 and didn't enter service in the US military until the 90s, where as the beginning of the movie takes place in 1972. Also, the M16 that Peniston had just before letting the Creature's cage go was the A2 model, which wasn't developed until 1981 and didn't enter service until 1983. See more »
As a TV mini-series, Creature ranks pretty much as first rate.
Although hardly original story wise, it's still an interesting creature feature flick that doesn't have too many lulls despite it's three hour running time. There are moments you could easily see get the axe should this be pruned down to feature length but overall the film runs along smoothly and at an adequate pace.
It's quite atmospheric at times and suspenseful and special effects are top notch. There's not any gore here and a seasoned horror fan can easily see where some red grue and more could have been spliced in. But no matter, it works despite that. The cast is also quite good with Craig T. Nelson in top form and Kim Cattrall looking lovely as ever.
Verdict: 7 out of 10. A very good time filler on a slow night.
