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.Read more ›
These types of movies are nothing more than a rubber stamp version of most of the rest of this genre..."Made for T.V." Basically a stepping stone for young inexperienced actors.
That being said, it is a shame that these actors couldn't find a better "stone" because as is with most stones...they sink or have the flight path of same. I believe that with a few million dollars this movie could have been brought up to an acceptable awful movie status and maybe even somewhat viewable but as is it is nothing more noisy night light.
The acting ranges from fairly good to uninspired, the music is sometimes trying too hard, and the CGI is just okay.
What's really outstanding are the creature effects. The alien is really well built with an imaginative design. I suspect that the creature was made first, and someone said, "Hey, we should make a movie with this!"
Still, as long as they did make a movie, it's not a bad movie. An okay flick for a night when there's nothing else to do.
Not necessarily recommended, but not discouraged either.
OK if all you want is some background noise after smoking a doobie, otherwise a waste of time.
I give it one star for the very brief boobage.
