Andrew is haunted by the nightmare of dying a horrible death in the claw of a rampaging creature. A friend convinces him the only way to conquer imagined fear is to confront it head on.

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.

this mess doesn't even qualify for "B" movie status, I love "B" movies. What happened that caused Devon Sawa to get involved in this tripe! What happened that caused Matthew Lawrence to get involved in this heap of crap? The other, and I will use the term very loosely "actors and actresses" should all be consigned to some type of purgatory for assisting in this travesty. Directing, editing, writing (what a horrible script) the dialog is one step up for "Duh". shame there isn't a zero button. I can't even talk about the so-called alien. Low budget should not necessarily mean bad. I have watched many low budget films that were fun and entertaining. I don't even want to talk about the absurd premise of this movie. Am I being harsh? I am for you...don't fall into the same trap I did. Run away, stay away, get clear, I took this bullet for you! Let's hope these actors fell into a well deserved oblivion. (Devon and Matthew can do better, the rest? no shot)

You've seen it before =(...
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.

Well, that wasn't bad. Nothing new or original--you've seen all this a dozen times or more--but for the most part done with a sincere attempt to entertain.

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.

Hmm? That was close, with the first scene being debateable whether this movie would turn out to be good... Then, progressively worse, scene after scene. I think it was actually toward the last scene, until I got actually angry, about this movie. The male-leads stunk to no end, and they ruined the whole thing. There were three beautiful female-leads (of course the six were dating on their camping trip), but, I think they were cast as t-n-a eye-candy (not cool). Bad special effects, dumb plot, and I'm pretty resentful towards the caster. !)

Bland, mediocre re-make of "Without Warning" but lacking the awesome screen presence of Larry Storch. Plot holes abound, cheezy FX,etc.
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.

What can I say for this zero budget thriller? It is not terribly creative, the characters we follow make a bunch of stupid choices. The alien isn't particularly bright for that matter. Less cussing and infighting than Blair Witch, a semi cohesive plotline, some hot babes, and possibly a few hunky dudes. This movie really stretches and attempts at creature effects and CGI. They wind up looking really cheesy and fake. If you want a movie with plenty of 'girlfriend snuggles up' moments, due to boredom or fright this would maybe fit the bill. The only girl with enough moxxy to get nude in here is pretty amazingly hot, if she can sing JLo may need to watch out. (Honestly I just watched this and forgot her name, its not worth going back to check). Oh, the girls are quite pretty and the alien is something of a racist not adhering to the political correctness conventions and instead making room in his collection for minor variations (aka 'Race').
