Blood is Blood
It really takes a special kind of something to screw up a simple formula like that found in Creature. Yet it happened and on a infamously historic level. Wanna see what all the hubbub is about? Now you can. If you dare.
Life has a funny way of turning things around. For the last few days I've been getting chastised for thinking that The Devil Inside was a decent little flick. Everywhere I turn I've been getting browbeaten. That's okay though. I have no problem taking my lumps and I stand by my words no matter what. Still, it's been kind of taxing, but then ... then I see a DVD cover that just brings a smile back to my face.
The plan to release Creature (review here) on 1,500 movie screens will go down as one of the most ill-conceived and costly mistakes in film distribution history. Grossing a miserable $331,000 on its opening weekend and earning the dubious distinction of being the worst 1,500-screen or more movie release in history, the producers had better hope the March DVD release is met with greater fanfare. Or should I say any fanfare?
Here I was planning to do a story posting this past Friday night’s “Nightline” segment about Creature’s box office apocalypse when I find out the film’s director did an interview lashing out at every online critic that didn’t like his movie in a way not seen since Uwe Boll’s famous online tirade following the release of House of the Dead.
This weekend indie monster movie Creature hit 1,500 theaters nationwide, which, for better or for worse, is a pretty magnificent feat regardless. Starring Mehcad Brooks, Serinda Swan, Amanda Fuller, Dillon Casey, Lauren Schneider, Aaron Hill, Daniel Bernhardt, and Sid Haig, Creature (review here) is centered around a group of friends on a road trip in New Orleans who have the misfortune of meeting "Lockjaw," a fabled half-man/half-alligator during their travels.
Today we finally get to the soul of Creature (review here) so to speak, with some behind-the-scenes videos in which the filmmakers talk about what goes into the making of the monster. Go check it out below.
