‘Jingle hell, jingle hell, creatures on the way’
Creatures is a 2021 British science-fiction horror feature film about a group of astronomy students that get more than they bargained for after finding an injured alien. Unfortunately, the alien is being targeted by a group of bloodthirsty alien creatures!
Directed by Tony Jopia (Cute Little Buggers; Crying Wolf; Dawning of the Dead; Deadtime), the Jopia Productions and Creatures Media LLC movie stars co-producer Romain Barbey, Jo Hart, Hephzibah Roe, Fina Saito, Zulekha Chaka, Joe Gallina, Cristo Fernández, Jack Frank, Andrew Greaves, Steve Aaron-Sipple, Chris Kyriacou, Derek Frood and Sarah Frances.
Creatures was filmed in Oxfordshire, in February 2020, with principal photography wrapping just a couple of weeks before the lockdown began. The post team is now working safely from their own homes. They wanted to create a Christmas themed creature feature that could sit alongside such movies as Night of the Creeps, Critters, Ghoulies, They Live and Gremlins. “Our passion lies in great practical SFX, so we wanted to deliver on the goods by bringing some creatively nasty SFX and puppet creature work that will make heads turn, literally!”
Director Tony Jopia enthused: “Creatures will definitely be delivering a red Christmas this year! We’re super excited to be making our biggest movie yet, it’s going to be a non-stop action, sci-fi, horror-comedy packed with badass nasty aliens and one adorable little bugger that’ll yule definitely want for Christmas.”
Producer Stu Jopia commented: “Creatures is for all the fans of 80s pint-sized creature feature movies. It really does has a bit of everything, action, comedy, sci-fi thrills and tonnes of gore, a true love letter to movies that I grew up with.”
In May 2021, it was announced that genre specialist sales outfit Black Mandala has acquired Creatures for future release.
