Don't go into the woods! Don't go into the swamp! Don't leave your house! These are some of the messages that you can find in horror films, but the new horror flick Creature wants you to leave your house for one special day - September 9, 2011. This is the day that Creature sears your dreams with terrifying swamp tales of death in theatres. This beast is part man and part alligator and thankfully, the locals have nicknamed him Lockjaw, for your amusement. You can face your bayou based demons with the first trailer for Creature below.

On a side note, Creature also pays homage to the 1982 classic Swamp Thing, while director Fred Andrews (Dark Ride) adds some more disturbing material, involving incest and possibly even symbolic bestiality. This is no smooth ride through the swamps and you will need all of your wits to survive this first harrowing clip for Creature, courtesy of Dread Central!

The film's synopsis is here:

"Promising a week of fun and relaxation, a group of six friend’s 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 version of bigfoot. This is a creature who is part man and 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 he was driven to madness, after realizing that he was too late to save his pregnant bride. His wife was also his sister, and in his madness, he ate the ancient alligator. Then, he 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 they 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!" (Creature).
