I’ve been slamming this movie since day one, and I’m still finding it incredibly odd that Fred M. Andrews’ flick is being pushed out into “theaters everywhere” on September 9.
Entitled Creature, the film has been known under various monikers from Blood is Blood to Lockjaw.
The “studio” releasing the film is called “Bubble Factory,” a company allegedly known for putting missing money into troubled productions and completing them (for a huge ownership percentage).
Does this mean the movie is bad? Not necessarily, but red flags are being raised from coast to coast. Being a horror fan to a fault, I can’t help but feel like something’s “off”. I’m still doubting this will actually hit theaters on September 9, but I guess time will tell. I can’t wait to see the film and offer my honest assessment. If it’s awesome, I’ll scream “I was wrong” from the rooftops (TwitVid?)
Check out the official “theatrical” trailer below, which utilizes a hilarious quote that’s obviously NOT from a review. Get more on Creature at the film’s official website.
“An ex-Navy seal, Niles (Mehcad Brooks), his girlfriend Emily (Serinda Swan) and their friends head out on a road trip to New Orleans. When the group decides to stop at a roadside convenience store owned by Chopper (Sid Haig) they are introduced to the legend of Lockjaw, a Creature who is part man, part alligator…The Legend has it that an inbred local man by the name of Grimley (Daniel Bernhardt), lost his family to a monstrous white alligator, and because of the devastating loss of his family was driven to madness and was transformed into the Creature. Their curiosity peaked, the group decides to head deeper into the swamps to check out the birthplace of this Creature legend. As they journey further into the backwoods the group arrives at an old dilapidated cabin and decide to camp there for the night and inadvertently unleash the Creature who terrorizes the group.”
