An ex-Navy seal (Mehcad Brooks), his girlfriend (Serinda Swan) and their friends head out on a road trip to New Orleans. The group decides to stop at a roadside convenience store owned by Chopper (Sid Haig), who tells them the tale of Lockjaw, a fabled god-like creature who is half-man, half-alligator. As they set-up camp for the night, their faith is put to the test when Lockjaw turns out to be more than just a myth and they realize the locals are hiding a horrifying secret that jeopardizes them all. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Deep in the swampy hearts and minds of some filmmakers, embarrassing stereotypes still fester, gathering moss and slime."
‑ Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe
"It is in no way a great movie. But it is a great reminder of what used to be so much fun about bad movies."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Creature has no merits to speak of but I am comforted by my ability to overcome my disorientation long enough to recognize how lacking Creature is."
‑ Sean Kernan, We Got This Covered
"Tedious and overly complicated..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The casting of legendary character actor Sid Haig -- and a subtle mention of Haig's best movie, Spider Baby (1964) -- suggests some genre knowledge, but there's no inspiration in the cheap, lazy Creature."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"Doesn't throw in the kind of wit that can turn a formulaic creature feature into a pleasant diversion along the lines of "Lake Placid.""
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"With dependably creepy character actor Sid Haig to goose things along as leader of the locals, "Creature" is delightfully dopey."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Parents should have it on their Netflix instant queue, ready to buttress their "If you go to acting school, you COULD end up taking your clothes off for some hack for a movie like this.""
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"The script (if one was ever finished), was seemingly passed through a paper shredder, tossed in the air then randomly taped back together."
‑ Corey Hall, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"The sort of Z-grade trash you expect to come across on Syfy whilst channel surfing late one night, not something you'd expect to pay good money to watch on the big screen."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"There is a perverse enjoyment to be had from something this cheesy, although not enough of one that I can recommend sitting through it."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"May have been intended as a homage of sorts to Jaws but it comes across as more like a ripoff of a film that is far, far, far out of its league."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"An awfully made, awfully acted, awfully plotted, and awfully boring more. In a word, Creature is awful."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Assembles all the ingredients necessary for a tasty swampsploitation horror gumbo, but sabotages the meal with cheesy digital blur effects and a lame sinkhole ending that prophesied the movie's box office fate."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Creature is refreshingly and intentionally silly, in an era when horror has devolved mostly into torture porn and high-tech, computer-generated assaults on our senses."
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
