This is based on the Peter Benchley novel "White Shark". After the TV Movie "Creature" went into production, "White Shark" was re-titled and re-released under the name "Creature" to cash in on the movie. 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.
