Rockne S. O'Bannon scripted this two-part TV miniseries adaptation of Peter Benchley's novel, found floating in the wake of his Jaws and The Beast. The origins of the tale's hybrid horror begin in 1972 at a secret Navy base off St. Lucia, where researchers cross a dolphin with a great white shark, creating a monster to generate fear and loathing in Vietnam. The Navy covers up the failed experiment, and 25 years later, cut to the Chase -- namely, scientist Simon Chase (Craig T. Nelson), who moves to the island to research a cancer-shark connection. Chase brings along his scientist ex-wife (Kim Cattrall), his 15-year-old son, Max (Matthew Carey), and their pet sea lion. Naturally, the "creature" resurfaces and gnaws on islanders -- with Chase soon in pursuit. Creature effects by Stan Winston. Filmed in St. Lucia, West Indies and Vancouver, British Columbia. Premiered May 17, 1998 on ABC. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    This movie was released in 1998, originally a scifi channel great that turned out to be one if not the best creature film ever made! Craig T. Nelson, Kim Cattrell, and a genetically engineered half shark, half dolphin, creature that can survive both in and out of water, HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE IT! :-)

    Creature is one of the most edge of your seat thrillers ever. when you think it's over the Creature pop's up again to pick off someone else. non-stop action and major never racking.
