Another enjoyable offering from Creature Features.
12 October 2001 | by (Boston,Mass.) – See all my reviews

I was thrilled to see that the second film in the CREATURE FEATURE line up HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER,delivered the goods. It is very different from SHE CREATURE. For one it is set in a modern,current time.I love good horror shows ,and was a fan of TALES FROM THE CRYPT. I missed not having something on T.V.that fit that bill besides reruns.But I must say that TALES always sort of seamed like the same show,these CREATURE FEATURES, so far, have put together two films that look nothing like each other. The direction is solid and it has a fun camp begining that turns into some pretty gruesome horror. What can I say ..I liked it a lot...
