"Creature" crawling to theatres, September 9th

Throughout the Halloween season, we’ll be writing about horror films big and small to help satiate our readers’ desires for every kind of scare they can find. To this end, we’re posting this brief tease of a trailer for “Creature,” coming out next Friday, September 9th.

Starring horror veteran Sid Haig, Pruitt Taylor Vince, and a cast of fresh victims, “Creature” is about a group of friends on a road trip through New Orleans who look into the local legend of a humanoid alligator named Lockjaw.

Or as the synopis goes:

Deciding to stop at a roadside tourist trap along the Louisiana back-roads, they are introduced to the legend of Lockjaw, the local version of Bigfoot. A creature part man, part alligator… the legend tells of an inbred local man by the name of Grimley who lost his family to a monstrous white alligator and was driven to madness when he was too late to save his pregnant bride (also his sister!) from the beast. In a fit of rage, he ate the ancient alligator and was cursed and transformed into the monster that became known as Lockjaw. Their curiosity peaked, the group decides to head deeper into the swamps to check out the birthplace of the Creature legend. As they journey further into the backwoods the group arrives at an old dilapidated cabin and decide to camp there for the night. Setting up camp and unwinding by the campfire, they are blissfully unaware that they are being watched… Soon, an innocent road trip to New Orleans becomes a nightmarish and brutal fight for survival deep in the swamplands of the Louisiana Bayou…
