Do you guys remember hearing about a flick called BLOOD IS BLOOD? Before that, it was known as LOCKJAW. The Bubble Factory has now settled on the title CREATURE. They say the third time is the charm, so hopefully the simple and to-the-point name will stick.
In any event, a new trailer for the flick can be seen below, along with some artwork. The picture is directed by Fred Andrews. It will mark his directorial debut, although he has worked as a production designer on films such as THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER and DARK RIDE. He also co-wrote the script with Tracy Morse.
The independent flick stars Mehcad Brooks ("TRUE BLOOD"), Serinda Swan (below, TRON: LEGACY), Dillon Casey, Lauren Schneider, Aaron Hill, Amanda Fuller (RED WHITE & BLUE), Pruitt Taylor Vince (CONSTANTINE), Daniel Bernhardt (THE MATRIX RELOADED) and Sid Haig (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS).
The film is due out on September 9. It will reportedly play on 15,000 screens. Here is the synopsis:
Promising a week of fun and relaxation, a group of six friends head out on a road trip to New Orleans.
When the group decides to stop at a roadside tourist trap along the Louisiana back-roads, they are introduced to the legend of Lockjaw, the local's version of bigfoot, a Creature who is part man, part alligator... The legend has it that an inbred local man by the name of Grimley, lost his family to a monstrous white alligator and was driven to madness when he realized that he was too late to save his pregnant bride who was also his sister, and in his madness ate the ancient alligator and was transformed into the Creature that the locals call Lockjaw.
Their curiosity peaked, the group decides to head deeper into the swamps to check out the birthplace of this 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. They set up and unwind around a campfire, unaware that they are being watched.
Very soon an innocent road trip to New Orleans becomes a nightmarish and brutal fight for survival deep in the swamplands of the Louisiana Bayou...
