Creature in the Dark was well filmed, interesting, and with some decent acting. This fell down slightly for me with the lack of dialogue restricting how much empathy I could feel for the protagonist, as well as the lack of much occurring during the 80 minutes run time. Still, this is another step up in quality and has me excited to see where Perret will go next.” The Rotting Zombie

“If you’re in the mood for a drama, Creature in the Dark is well written and acted. Rhoades does a good job of carrying just about the whole film alone. But with very little going on for much of the film’s running time some viewers will become restless. Doubly so for anyone expecting a more traditional horror film.” Voices from the Balcony
