She Creature (originally billed as Mermaid Chronicles Part 1: She Creature) is a 2001 television film starring Rufus Sewell, Carla Gugino and Rya Kihlstedt and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez . It is the first in a series of films made for Cinemax paying tribute to the films of American International Pictures. The films in this tribute series reused the titles of old American International Pictures films, but are not remakes of the earlier films.
Circa 1900, in Ireland, two carnies, Angus Shaw (Rufus Sewell) and his wife Lillian (Carla Gugino), abduct a mermaid (Rya Kihlstedt) and try to smuggle her into the United States. As their ship appears to lose its way, the mermaid begins to show a deadly, almost vampiric side.
The name and basic plot of this movie was integrated into a season 5 episode of the adult swim cartoon Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
