Creature of Darkness is one of the worst sci-fi movies that I've subjected myself to since Battlefield Earth. It was so bad for different reasons that I have no idea how it made it to Redbox.

Andrew and his friends decide to spend a night off-roading and camping, at the exact time and location that he's aware an alien hunter is on the prowl. But since the producers couldn't afford an alien costume, our outer-space hunter walks around the woods in a hooded overcoat.

Oh, it gets better.

While the alien in Predator loves to hunt soldiers built like NFL running backs, our alien targets humans that seem "collectible" for his galaxy's museum. Andrew, in his infinite knowledge of alien hunting patterns, expertly proclaims that one of their buddies was captured because of his red hair and freckles.

I'm not making this up.

Creature of Darkness is basically a rip-off of Predator, only with bad acting, bad directing, and horrible CGI effects. While there's nudity in the film, one beauty flashes her boyfriend, yet the director pans the camera up so you can't see (why even include that). When the group discover a bloody body near their campground, one actress has a huge accidental grin after hearing another's shriek. Director Mark Stouffer apparently felt that shooting more than one take of a scene is for amateurs. In fact, the only actor who offers a quality and funny performance is Dan White, as Andrew's buddy Mason.

The only redeeming feature of this movie is that the entire cast of women is beautiful. There are plenty of curvy bodies and flat tummies in this film, from TV personality Ingrid Schau to Hawaii surfer Sanoe Lake.

A number of young adults head out into a get away weekend near an Air Force test base. Andrew has nightmares. They decide to confront his nightmares head on with a camping trip. (Just what Mom would have us do when we had bad dreams- make us sleep outside.) As it turns out, his dream about a creature, a combination of Predator and Darth Maul (black hoodie optional), comes true as his friends become hunted. There are some internal conflicts within the group to add to the spice of the film...or not as the case may be.

The special effects were low budget, but not the worst aspect of the film. The horrible dialouge and general plot far out weigh any problems with CG effects. In one weird scene a young lady lifts her top for "inspiration" while the camera man pans her bar midriff...um guys...have you ever watched a horror movie before?

This is one film I would have liked more if everyone died. And for the record, Einstein never predicted time travel.

Mark Stouffer's Creature of Darkness is a science fiction monster movie much reminiscent of the Predator. It differs in that this time around, we don't have a group of rag tag commandos, but rather college-aged friends out for a good time in the woods. The story follows Andrew (Devon Sawa) who's suffered nightmares of a creepy and murderous alien. Andrew's friend Heather (Fernanda Romero) convinces him to overcome his fears and join a group on an off-road adventure. It's only a matter of time before Andrew's nightmares start to resemble reality.

At this point the film turns more into a slasher as members of the group begin to be picked off. As things start to get shaken up, Andrew reveals the stories once told by his lunatic uncle, relating them to what's currently happening. Naturally the group can't believe what they're seeing or hearing, prompting tempers to flare. As they start to put the pieces together, Andrew believes the ghastly creature hunting them down is the Catcher, an alien sent to collect human specimens for scientific studies. From here out, the film turns into a classic survival tale as the remaining people in the group attempt to outsmart their hunter.

The story of Creature of Darkness is an exciting one. It manages to blend great elements of science fiction and horror (more specifically, slashers). Perhaps what this film suffered most from was that it's visions exceeded it's budget. The Catcher's face looked realistic, creepy, and original. However when a scene called for the monster's full unclothed body to be seen, this was done in CGI. The transition between the sculpted face and the animated critter was blatant.

The writer(s) on this film must be the most laid back people in existence. I don't know what other type of person could write characters like this because they do NOTHING.

There's a mangled corpse in the road, should we do something. No lets just wait it out.

Cops (Military Rangers?) have shown up should we go over there? Nope
Should we speed off into the desert as to not get caught? Eh, sure but no hurry.

A huge hole just opened up in the road ahead of me, should I avoid it? Nah just drive into it.

Friend goes missing, look for him? Nah, call his name a few times and move on.
Strange figure in the distance; investigate? Nah, that's just our missing friend, he always carries a cape and hat in his pocket.

I bought this movie because of my Devon Sawa obsession (the fact that I have seen C.O.D more than once is a sad testament to this). Devon and a few laughs (at the movie, not with) was really the only thing going for it. Devon and Matthew Lawrence seemed to be the only ones that ever bothered to act, for even a fraction of the time. Kevin Alejendro's performance was surprisingly bad.

Bad writing, cheap effects, minimal plot. I'm not surprised that it took a few years for this movie to be released. Thank you, Devon, for not doing anything else this bad.
