"Kathleen Turner is the voice of Clawdette the black cat in this very short, mildly appealing, and sometimes humorous feature of mostly nocturnal entities that are, well, creepy as the title implies.
Most of the laughs from kids, or groans from adults probably, will undoubtedly come from the narration of Clawdette that is rife with frightful clichés, ghastly puns, and a few gruesome one-liners here and there. A little overdone but not done to death. (Ouch)
The several different types of weird, scary, and even fascinating creatures explored in this show are listed below:
Black Widows and other spiders
Various types of snakes
Along with good video presentation of these critters in action (some material which might be a little too strong for the youngest of audiences), limited descriptions of unique abilities and behaviors that each of them possess are shown also.
It's hard to knock National Geographic as they make such terrific documentaries in almost all cases. This program wasn't a failure on their part by any means but only thirty minutes of material doesn't even begin to scratch the surface on subjects that could be examined in-depth for much longer. Mother Nature is just too large and too fascinating to forgo a full length documentary on any topics like this.
