Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Dr. Chase is bringing the injured Constable back from the marshes, the truck is left hand drive. Earlier in the movie when the Constable demands that his daughter get in the truck it is right hand drive. See more »

This movie fails so hard that it approaches win from the other side.
13 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Grab some popcorn and skittles 'cause this movie is epic! Creature is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, and as such I consider it one of the best. Nothing speaks to a true B-rated sci-fi fanatic like government cover-ups, outlandish monsters, strained family ties, and the manipulation the human genome. And, Ladies and Gentlemen let me tell you: this movie does not just speak, it sings. I would recommend this film to anyone who consider themselves a connoisseur of the B-rated genre. Yes, Creature is about 3 hours long (with commercials) but the ending is pure poetry and very worth the wait. Creature is a classic cross-section of the epic sci-fi; as such I recommend that it be viewed at 2:00am - no earlier.
