If you’ve seen one backwoods incestuous half-man, half-alligator creature feature, you’ve seen ’em all.
Directed by Fred M. Andrews, Creature follows an ex-Navy SEAL (Mehcad Brooks) and his trashy girlfriend (Serinda Swan) on a road trip to New Orleans with their annoying twenty-something pals.
The gang stops at a desolate roadside gas station owned by Chopper (Sid Haig, House of 1000 Corpses), who tells them the tale of Lockjaw, a backwoods abomination who is half-man, half-alligator. The incestuous and absurd folktale goes a little something like this: An inbred cajun creeper by the name of Grimley (Daniel Bernhardt) lost his family to a monstrous white alligator, which drove him to madness – and by madness I mean, he beat the shit out of that alligator and turned into a cannibal. Somehow ol’ cannibalistic Grimley transformed into Lockjaw, an alligator-man with a Glasgow grin that prowls about the swamps in search of fresh meat.
Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: Community star Yvette Nicole Brown with Cap’s shield, Alex Ross Star Trek box art, Hellacious Acres trailer, new Joss Whedon book, Poe & Phillips graphic novel, a featurette on Creature, plus some Bits Of Doom.
