I don't need a bazillion dollars in special effects. I just need a good story. Could half man/half alligator be a good story?

On the surface this looks a little like a Sci-fy channel movie of the week, but maybe, just maybe instead of "Sharktopus" we get another "Creature From The Black Lagoon?" The great Sid Haig (Captain Spaulding) is in this one as well as a bunch of actors who look more convincing than the guy in the rubber 'Creature' suit. If they can keep the tension up on the screen, who knows? I'd rather see this than the latest "Blockbuster" piece of crap. Check out the trailer for "Creature" and tell me: epic or fail?
