Creature (2011) Review

Fred Andrews directed Creature (2011) is both a weird and terrible creature feature film. Creature had an estimated $3 million movie budget and grossed $327,000 at the US box office. Creature was also nominated as the worst film at Fangoria Chainsaw Awards 2012.

Creature is about a pact with a Gatorman (half-alligator half-man creature) named Lockjaw who kills some people passing through town. The people making the pact are some weird folks who deliver people to the gator.

Next on the menu is an ex-Navy Seal, his girlfriend, and their friends. They are on their way to New Orleans on what seems like a regular road trip. They stop off at a local roadside store. Here is where they hear about the legend of Lockjaw.

Lockjaw is the story of an inbred man whose family was lost to a huge white alligator. He was driven to madness and transformed into the creature named Lockjaw. Just like that, he turned into giant alligator monster creature, sarcasm.

The group heads deep into the swamp to investigate this strange legend.The writing and directing leaves a little to be desired here.

The writing and directing leaves a little to be desired here. The acting was overall okay, but there were so many issues as a whole that kept me from enjoying this film more. Having actors like Mehcad Brooks and Serinda Swan could not save the film even though their performances were the better part of this movie.
