Six 'kids' on a road-trip to New Orleans stop off at a tourist trap to check out the local legend of Lockjaw, a half-swamp-man/half-alligator that supposedly lives in the bayou...

I've absolutely no problem with cookie-cutter horror films wherein dumb youngsters seem to go out of their way to be torn limb from limb; on the contrary, I positively encourage them, just so long as they don't skimp on the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity. Creature, a by-the-numbers monster film from first time director Fred Andrews, begins in the right spirit, delivering in both departments with full frontal nudity from a young woman who gets her legs chewed off when she takes a naked dip in a swamp.

The bare flesh continues with the introduction of the three uninhibited girls—Emily, Beth and Karen (Serinda Swan, Amanda Fuller and Lauren Schneider), all of whom strip off to some degree during the film, but the gore proves frustratingly tame, the majority of the nastiness occurring just out of frame. Add the fact that the film's monster is a laughably bad man-in-a-rubber suit creation, and it soon becomes apparent that Creature is one of the genre's weaker efforts.

Sid Haig does his best to inject some fun into proceedings with a deranged performance that is essentially Captain Spaulding without the clown make-up, and the plot is given some much needed pep with the introduction of some lesbian shenanigans and a touch of incest (Karen giving her brother a hand with his photography being surprisingly perverted), but the lack of decent splatter, the weak monster, and a very silly ending make this far from essential viewing.

4.5 out of 10, rounded up to 5 for IMDb.
