Movie Watch – Creature Of Darkness

(Matthew Lawrence, Devon Sawa, Sanoe Lake)

While browsing the internet for a movie that just looks great to look forward to, i came across something that attracted me right to it. The title of the film is Creature Of Darkness. It is still in post-production but expects a 2008 release date. Wait until you hear the details on this one!

Here is the plot synopsis. (Taken straight from the IMDB page linked above)

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. When they invite an adventurous group of off-roaders for radical cycling in remote terrain, no one knows they are being led to the time and place the nightmare unfolds. As sunset plunges them into darkness, the dreadful dream turns real, and they are attacked by the Catcher, a skilled and brutal collector of human specimens for alien science.

They are no match for the deft hunter, and it picks its victims, dragging them into an underground catacomb. When Andrew’s girlfriend is seized, he confronts the ultimate terror of tracking her into the unknown danger below. In a courageous rescue, they attempt escape, but the vicious visitor has marked them with a scent, and it pursues in an unrelenting attack.

The plot sounds like it could be a good movie. But it is a matter of whether or not they execute the plot correctly to define how good the movie will be. The creator of this film is Mark Stouffer, who was the Producer of the 1997 hit movie ‘Wild America.’ I haven’t really seen any of his directing work in action, but i will soon with Creature Of Darkness. Visit his IMDB page (linked above) to see films he has made in the past, and detailed information about himself.

Besides the fantastic plot for a horror movie, the other thing that dragged me in was the still photos from the movie. The creature who they say is the taker of humans for alien testing and such, looks creepy as hell. It resembles “The Gremlin” from the 4th segment of Twilight Zone – The Movie. That creature is actually scary. This creature looks crazy as well. Here are some photos.

I’ve searched the web, and have yet to see a trailer released for the film, but i expect one in the near future when the film is finished. So keep a lookout and save the link so you know when to expect what i think will be a great horror movie depending on how Mark Stouffer desides to execute it!
