Creepy
23 March 2014 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Bob's review intrigued me . Hardly a surprise since this movie sounds surreal and totally messed up . Body parts come together in a symbiotic way ? What's not to like ? Reading Bob's review I was reminded very much of a couple of Clive Barker short stories in the author's BOOKS OF BLOOD series , The Body Politics where hands suddenly become self aware try to break free from the bodies they're attached to and In The Hills The Cities where a couple of tourists in Yugoslavia find two giants composed entirely of human individuals . This isn't how THE ORIGIN OF CREATURES plays out however and is somehow unique despite the brooding downcast imagery and atmosphere that comes with it that you've seen in other post apocalypse movies . I was especially reminded by the look of this with THREADS and THE ROAD . There's no dialogue and the creatures themselves are very difficult to describe , the most common one seems to be a bunch of fingers resembling arachnids/bugs . It's also difficult to see what the point it is making but to me it's that by mankind not working together it was this that brought about the end of the world and sadly it also suggests that whatever these creatures evolve in to they will repeat the same mistakes
