Klaus Kinski stars along with a cast of unknowns in a low budget "Alien" ripoff that was actually better than I expected. Despite its budgetary limitations it had pretty decent sets and costumes (though the title Creature itself was a pretty sad looking rubbery puppet), and though it wasn't original in the slightest "Creature" kept my interest and it was fun to watch. Gore fiends might get a kick out of this one as there is a pretty WICKED exploding-head scene, a decapitation, and a dude getting his face peeled off of his skull. Oh, and some boobies too. So ya got gore and ya got boobies. What more could you possibly ask from a dollar store DVD?

I Wonder If These Filmmakers Saw "Alien"?

""Creature" is a 1984 monster-in-space movie with virtually no originality but plenty of terrible dialogue and special effects. The film is extremely derivative in almost every aspect: what recent monster or sci-fi movie doesn't make a guest appearance here? Certainly "Alien" and "Jaws" do, at least in spirit. (The conclusion's homage to "Jaws" is especially eye-rolling.)
The acting and especially dialogue are ghastly, although the actors really do try to work with what's been handed to them as best they can. The film starts with an interesting enough corporate intrigue angle (which unfortunately goes nowhere), and progresses to a guy in a rubber suit chasing the stars around cheesy sets in short order. There are a lot of diversions along the way (e.g. lots of hot soldering action, and Klaus Kinski as a creepy German), but it really boils down to the cast getting decimated by a creature that harkens back to other sci-fi creatures.
The film features special effects that vary from not bad to really appalling, but the content of the film is really the issue here, and it can never overcome its derivative nature and the fact that many other movies have trodden the same turf and have been much more entertaining."
Only for die-hard fans of Klaus Kinski

"The whole movie is boring. The only reason to buy it is the scene with Klaus Kinski, which you can - fortunately - access directly. A shame that great Maestro Kinski accepted to waste his talent in such a crappy film. For Kinski alone I give one star."
