Alice is nervous. She's not good at costumes and is running late to a Halloween party. Spooked, she calls her best friend, Lucy, who's already at the party. Lucy dismisses Alice's fear as social awkwardness. As Alice walks alone to the party, she is attacked by four masked trick-or-treaters. Little do they know, they would trigger a monstrous transformation in Alice. The creature within Alice eviscerates the masked men. And also gives her the perfect blood soaked costume for the party.

CREATURE is Larissa James' directorial debut that she also wrote and edited. James has always been drawn to strong female characters and super natural genre stories that are grounded in reality. With Co-Writer Nicholas Nardini, she turned this very real story of a woman being afraid for her life into a feminist and super natural revenge film. James and Nardini are developing CREATURE into an episodic half-hour comedy, gore TV series.
