Storyline

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 by 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. Written by Anonymous

An alien creature hunts humans.
10 January 2010 | by djohns600See all my reviews

I don't know what movie "Stardale in UK" saw, but I saw "Creature of Darkness" at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in Santa Barbara in Februry, 2009. I really enjoyed it. The audience loved it too, and more than 200 of us stayed afterwards for a Q&A with writer-director, Mark Stouffer. After hearing how the low-budget movie got made, we were amazed that it turned out as good as it did. "COD" comes from the Roger Corman school of film-making, i.e.: a shoe-string budget, an attractive cast of young actors, a creepy scifi story, a big bad alien creature, cheap SPFX, that don't always work, but serve the story well, and lots and lots of sexy action. If I have any complaint its about the repetitious canned music. The movie, about an alien creature hunting humans, stars Devon Sawa ("Final Destination") and Matthew Lawrence, who are pretty good in it. So too, are the cast of hot young actresses, headed up by Sanoe Lake (the blonde surfer chick from "Blue Crush") who become prey for the creature. The girls aren't afraid to show off their...well you know...their assets. There's a nude shower scene that is worth the price of a rental. Add to that, off-road action with cycles, ATVs and dune-buggies and you've got a fast-paced eighty-five minute story. And then there's the alien, a cool looking, bug-like creature, who stands seven feet tall. It's seen as both a CGI creature and a full, 3D, animatronic puppet. After the creature starts killing off the teens, one by one, the teens fight back using make-shift weapons, ingenuity and raw courage. While the story is a bit confusing at times, and there are some clunky scenes, it all finally comes together and the movie delivers what you expect: hot bodies, good scares, and kick-ass action. Even with its flaws, "COD" is as good as, if not better than, a lot of the films the SciFi Channel -- I mean the SyFi Channel -- runs Saturday nights.
