CREATURE / Trans World Entertainment - 1985

Today we go into outer space and find Dungeon Heavyweight Klaus Kinski there! Although, Klaus seems a little misplaced in an ALIEN ripoff. The story is about a crew of scientists that arrive on a moon of Saturn to examine ancient artifacts of unknown origin and discover that some Germans already have a ship there.

Sit on it, Potsie!!.. This dude sits on a cracked pod with a mean old alien monster inside!

I've got a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our alien in a pod, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a sample from... CREATURE!

Here's our crew as they prepare to land on the moon, not realizing the all fun they're in for.

Of course, they have to go down through the ALIEN rabbit hole to find the hidden horrors.

Guess who's been creeping around in the background?!.. Looks like this was a perk for getting Klaus to break character and appear in this spaced out gore fest.

Here, Klaus explains to the unsuspecting crew what they are about to step right in. You can hear him talk about it in the sound clip...

It's nothing less than a house of horrors when the humans start being infected by the CREATURE!

Like in the original THE THING, they try and destroy the monster with this hi-tech electro dealie-bob! It doesn't woik!

We get some good shots of the thing at the end. Believe it or not, this guy survives this gruesome ordeal, because...

His girlfriend comes in and blows the Hell out of the CREATURE!!.. We're back tomorrow with more cool junk from The Dungeon Gang...

Da-da recalls, when he saw this in the theater long ago, that he originally thought that *Klaus Kinski* was The Creature. Would've been a lot scarier.

Aw, no clip from the erotic, naked astronaut who seduces a fellow shipmate into taking off his helmet on Titan?

Seriously, this thing was originally to be titled "The Titan Find" but I guess they wanted that ALIEN vibe, so it was retitled "Creature."

Stan Ivar, the ship captain, is pretty reasonable. Lyman Ward (Ferris Bueller's dad) is stereotyped but good at it. And Wendy Schaal went on to a decent career, and is currently known for playing Francine on "American Dad."

All in all, you could do faaaaaarrrrr worse than catching this little number.
