Andrew is haunted by the nightmare of dying a horrible death in the claw of a rampaging creature. A friend convinces him the only way to conquer imagined fear is to confront it head on. When they invite an adventurous group of off-roaders for radical cycling in remote terrain, no one knows they are being led to the time and place the nightmare unfolds. As sunset plunges them into darkness, the dreadful dream turns real, and they are attacked by the Catcher, a skilled and brutal collector of human specimens for alien science. They are no match for the deft hunter, and it picks its victims, dragging them into an underground catacomb. When Andrew's girlfriend is seized, he confronts the ultimate terror by tracking her into the unknown danger below. In a courageous rescue, they attempt escape, but the vicious visitor has marked them with a scent, and it pursues in an unrelenting attack. Written by Anonymous

Alright, this was somewhat of a joke.

First the GOOD parts; well the creature wasn't too shabby when you saw the prosthetics they made for it (although the CGI animated creature sucked horribly). The male casted actors did a fairly alright job with their roles and characters (while most of the female ones were not so good).

And moving right on to the BAD parts; the story was laughable and fairly stupid. Didn't really make a whole lot of sense all together. The dialogue was halting and often ridiculous. Lots of loose ends and events that doesn't make much sense throughout the entire movie. The scenes where the creature was CGI animated were fake and painful to watch.

Anyway, based from the cover of the movie it looked to be fairly alright, but turned out to be anything but interesting. The movie might have been scary and "up to date" had it been made during the late 80's. There is a whole sense of 80's to this movie. And it doesn't work out in favor of the movie though.

"Creature of Darkness" is good for some laughs and head shakings, but don't expect to get scared. Having seen this movie, it is not one I will return to again.
