Here’s five recent Blu-ray, DVD, and streaming releases that may have caught your attention on new release shelves lately, ranked in the order we’d add them to our holiday wish list.

Here is the plot description for “Creature”:
Promising a week of fun and relaxation, a group of six friends head out on a road trip to New Orleans. Deciding to stop at a roadside tourist trap along the Louisiana back roads, they are introduced to the legend of Lockjaw: the local version of Bigfoot.
A creature part man and part alligator, the legend tells of an inbred local man named Grimley. He lost his family to a monstrous white alligator and was driven to madness when he was too late to save his pregnant bride (also his sister!) from the beast.
In a fit of rage, he ate the ancient alligator and was cursed and transformed into the monster that became known as Lockjaw. Their curiosity peaked, the group decides to head deeper into the swamps to check out the birthplace of the creature legend. As they journey further into the backwoods, the group arrives at a dilapidated cabin and decide to camp there for the night.
Setting up camp and unwinding by the campfire, they are blissfully unaware that they are being watched. Soon, an innocent road trip to New Orleans becomes a nightmarish and brutal fight for survival deep in the swamplands of the Louisiana Bayou.
The movie trailer for “Creature” can be watched now below.
