Product Description

SHE CREATURE is the sexy and stylish horror thriller starring Rufus Sewell (A Knight's Tale), CarlaGugino (Spy Kids, TV's Spin City), and Gil Bellows (TV's Ally McBeal, The Shawshank Redemption). With special effects by the legendary monster maker Stan Winston (Alien, The Terminator, Jurassic Park), SHE CREATURE is a winning combination of eye-popping visuals mixed with good, old-fashioned storytelling to create a terrifying tale of mermaids and mayhem. Angus (Sewell) and Lillie (Gugino) are traveling the Irish countryside with their carnival sideshow when they befriend a wealthy old sailor.After giving him a ride to his castle, he shows them his deadly prize: a real, live mermaid held captive in a tank. Eager for fame and fortune, Angus and his crew steal the sea creature and make plans to set sail for America. After loading their cargo and boarding a boat, they soon learn that the animal they possess is as dangerous as it is beautiful. But nothing can prepare them for the horror that


This surprisingly satisfying horror movie centers on a mermaid--but it's hardly one of the giggly types from Peter Pan. Rufus Sewell and Carla Gugino play a couple of small-time circus people who discover that an eccentric old man keeps a genuine mermaid in a water-filled tank. Dreaming of an invitation from Ringling Bros., Sewell steals the mermaid and loads her on a ship for America. But in the middle of the Atlantic, the hungry mermaid shows her darker side--and Gugino learns that she may be linked to the mermaid in unexpected ways. She Creature was no doubt made on a low budget, but it looks excellent and the above-average script gives the strong cast firm ground to stand on. The mermaid herself (Rya Kihlsted) is both lovely and eerie. All in all, an enjoyable homage to classic horror films. --Bret Fetzer

Customer Reviews

Subtle eroticism, really a beautiful and classy piece of work.
MooncatX aka Bliss Crimson
It had a really good story line, and great special effects that DID NOT rely on idiot CGI.
This is a remake of one of the cheesiest 1950's horror movies I've ever seen.

I really expected to dislike this movie. I found it while flipping around channels late one night on HBO. HBO was advertising it as a "modern" Creature Feature, that is reminiscent of "old time" creature features (ie Creature From the Black Lagoon). I was intrigued--especially when I heard it was about a mermaid--ever since I was a little girl, I've liked to read myth & folklore & I've always been a bit disappointed that in the movies mermaids were always depicted as being friendly & cheerful, when, in most legend, they were the total opposite.
Still, I thought that the movie had the potential to be really awful & cheesy. It certainly was not. It had wonderful acting & great writing for a horror movie--it was like a dark fairytale. Although the mermaid is quite vicious, she is still a complex character with feelings--you feel sorry for her even though she scares you. The cast is wonderful, and the mermaid is so beautiful! There was no CGI for a change (or at least, so little of it that I didn't notice it) , all the creature effects were made the old-fashioned way (by pure talent!) which was so cool.
I highly recommend this movie. It's alot of fun and stylistically very nice to look at.
A nice change for anybody who's sick of horror films with loads of computer animation & special effects but no storyline.
Or for those who'd enjoy a good, creepy, dark fairytale with a wonderfully unique feminist slant to it.

This may be my first DVD purchase from Sony Pictures "Creature Feature" collection but, if there are others with the same cynical tongue-in-cheek humor, imaginative twist of storyline, and horror- drama thrills, it will be the first of many! Thoroughly enjoyable! Who would have ever thought that the mysteries of the deep could be so deliciously dangerous!
Rya Kihlstedt plays the She Creature (the word "mermaid" lacks the depth and dimension to describe her) while Rufus Sewell and Carla Gugino (as Angus and Lillie) play an exploitative carnival-sideshow couple whose sense of humanity is sufficiently diverse to be exploited by a more subtle, more ruthless mind! Together they play an interesting variation on the menage-a-trois theme. The supporting cast does a praiseworthy job too! They magnificently keep the movie sailing on above the dramatic limitations of filming 95% of a story on board a poorly-lit wooden ship!
However, there's plenty of color added to the story by greed, sensuality, antagonism, distrust, patience, lies, seduction, past histories, propriety, humor, etc. Excellent sound effects and music help emphasize moments of possible telepathic communication and psychic possession (even impregnation of female by female!); also, precognitive dreams in restless sleep heighten the suspense and help define what dreadful fate awaits ... unless ...!
Anyhow, an atmosphere as dreadful as a mysterious Marie Celeste tale is created, then, with tensions heightened, tightened ... agonizingly tightened ... ah! But, you'd best view this movie yourself to know what happens next! If you enjoy horror-thrillers, you won't mind the suspense of the wait! And the movie? Well, you may even love it!

Finally, a tale that seems to pay homage to the old monster genre without taking away some of the modern movie appeal (or the reason they should be appealing). Now, I'm not one for spoilers (and despise them, actually), so I won't try to flash the high points of the movie away. Instead, I'll say that the concept of the movie, a mermaid being something that could be sinister (as well they should) and a bit unpredictable, actually kept me watching. It went outside of the normal bounds of this otherwise restricted character, giving the creature an ominous tone even when it wasn't horrifying. The supporting cast also propelled the movie forward, doing a superb job acting (and dying) to the delight of this hard to please audience. This, added to the fact that the build worked out and there weren't huge holes in the storyline made me glad I picked it up to watch.
All in all, I have to say that this movie was a wonderful breath of fresh air in an otherwise stagnant time for movie making, giving effects without CGI (something I like, but don't have to have) without sacrificing the integrity of modern effectiveness. Also, the clarity of the movie is superb, the storyline works really well, and the creature - o, the creature. I have to say that when Stan Winston puts his seal on a project, you know it'll be done right (well, the effects will be done right, anyway).
Its worth watching.

OK, I admit it: any movie Rufus Sewell does, I will watch and probably buy. That's just the way it is when you're an American fan of a British actor who isn't Hugh Grant! But I'm no horror movie buff, so I probably wouldn't have bothered with this one otherwise.
And then, what do you know, it's better than I expected! Looks beautiful for the low-budget nature people keep mentioning, all dark and spooky but somehow lovely. Of course Rufus is in good form, as always... Carla's great, and the mermaid's so well-done and sympathetic that when she does go psycho you actually kind of root for her. (Except when she goes after our boy, of course! ) Wish the movie had taken more time with its characters, been maybe a half hour longer, but I guess that's the nature of the genre; this was the best of the four creature-features Cinemax/HBO did... I'd love to see the sequel implied by the last moments of the film, too.
Would like to have seen more stuff on the DVD, but things like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings tend to raise your expectations there. Only films that make truckloads of money can go to those lengths! I'd buy this one even without the commentary and so forth. Great flick: fun, scary, pretty... more than you can usually say for a "creature feature!
