SHE CREATURE is the sexy and stylish horror thriller starring Rufus Sewell (A Knight's Tale), CarlaGugino (Spy Kids, TV's Spin City), and Gil Bellows (TV's Ally McBeal, The Shawshank Redemption). With special effects by the legendary monster maker Stan Winston (Alien, The Terminator, Jurassic Park), SHE CREATURE is a winning combination of eye-popping visuals mixed with good, old-fashioned storytelling to create a terrifying tale of mermaids and mayhem. Angus (Sewell) and Lillie (Gugino) are traveling the Irish countryside with their carnival sideshow when they befriend a wealthy old sailor.After giving him a ride to his castle, he shows them his deadly prize: a real, live mermaid held captive in a tank. Eager for fame and fortune, Angus and his crew steal the sea creature and make plans to set sail for America. After loading their cargo and boarding a boat, they soon learn that the animal they possess is as dangerous as it is beautiful. But nothing can prepare them for the horror that

The film, is a brave atemp at the old hammer house of horror classic films, and as such does seem to hold true to some of the guideline the classic films had. The story will make you jump in places, there is only a few things that lets the film down and I am sad to say on of these is the vey sad monster. With a little bit more budget spent on the monster I think it would and could of worked, how it looks at the moment is cheesy.
If you like old ghost stories, it has the feeling of that, and it works very well, however if you like modern upto date scare the living pants off you, this film, will leave you very disapointed.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In the early years of the 21st century someone came up with an idea which would revolutionise nothing. It would, nevertheless, provide some entertainment for fans of monster movies. The idea was that, using the titles of some AIP horror movies produced by the legendary Samuel Z (pronounced Zee) Arkhoff, a new production team which included Lou, son of Samuel Z, and the equally legendary Stan Winston would create new and different movies. While made for cable on a relatively low budget, these movies would nevertheless look good and star moderately well-known actors including the likes of Rufus Sewell, Carla Gugino, Clea Duvall, Dan Aykroyd, Theresa Russell, Natassia Kinski, etc.

I'd seen a couple of these when they were first released on DVD, under the banner title Creature Features, borrowing them from a nearby and now long-closed Blockbuster store and rather enjoyed them. In the last few days I've discovered all five of them available on Amazon and all for £3.00 or less. A couple of them have pretty terrible reviews but what the hell I thought and ordered the lot. And here is the first I watched. It's also the best.

This is actually the first of the Creature Feature series, though they were all made in a fairly short span of time. Sewell runs a fake freak sideshow in Ireland just after the turn of the last century and Gugino (with a convincing non-American accent) is his fake mermaid and lover with a shady past. One aging and drunk customer who has come to check out the mermaid actually has a real one in captivity and it killed his wife. Sewell, seeing money signs in front of his eyes, kidnaps it with one of his men (who plays a fake zombie) accidentally killing the old man in the process. Sewell gets it on board a ship bound for the States without the crew realising.

Considering water covers more of our planet that land, it remains truly disappointing that sea-going horror of any note you can generally count on one flippered claw, but come 2001 we were suddenly give two of the best. One was Stuart Gordon's masterpiece 'Dagon'-at least linked to the sea, though enough of it took place on land, and the second was this crisply, well-cast fright flick that, despite the keeping title of an old American International Picture, changes the story completely, already the first positive. The look of the film is suitably murky, as it follows two carnies, wonderfully played by Brit actor Rufus Sewell and US actress Carla Gugino, dumping her usual accent rather expertly. They fleece paying peasants, she pretending to be a mermaid, disporting herself in a glass case while opera is played on an old record player to add to the look and "sound of the sea". That is until Aubrey Morris bounds in, among cries they're cheating the crowds, and tell them he has a REAL mermaid he's imprisoned in his home for "eating his wife no less". Rufus eyes light up, after his own cynicism departs, and they break in to steal her.

As they set out to sea with her, the superstitious crew not impressed with what they would term a bad omen, Carla increasingly seems to find a burgeoning bond with the fish-tailed girl, whilst trying to avoid an intimidatingly leering and drunk Gil Bellows, who knew about her past in London as a prostitute in London, and garrulous enough to spread it, but it soon becomes clear, the ship seems to be on its own course, rather than the ship's captain but why?
