I just watched Creep, the subway-stalker movie starring Franka Potente. I'll start by saying I'm quite dissapointed, and I'm glad I watched this first before shelling out cash to import the DVD after being impressed by the trailer I saw several months ago. The films plot is very simple; Young woman leaves a party and decides to take the subway train to catch up with a friend who left before her. She sneaks in a few drinks of alcohol before her train arrives and zonks out, missing the last train, and finding herself locked within the subway station. Within minutes, she is being chased around the underground tunnel system by an unseen, vicious stalker, the Creep. The best thing about the movie are the sets, the environments; lots of dark and gritty sewer and subway tunnels, which are all lit beautifully, and uh..'creepily' by usually a single light source; flashlight, cigarette lighter..etc. Actually the entire movie is shot really nicely, great cinematography...but thats about the extent of what I liked. The first half hour of the movie is quite good, its nicely paced; since there is not much room for story the action starts up quite soon and dosent let up... ...However the point where the movie went downhill for me was the first reveal of the 'Creep', he is very dissapointing and un-inspired. From that point on its hard to take the rest of the movie seriously when you are completely not scared, or creeped out by the main villain and basically just find him rediculous looking and un-inspired. Spoiler Its basically just a guy with some skin make-up, and some face and back make-up to make his head look a little demented and parts of his spine bulge out, honestly that one photo of that creepy-ass sex offender Brian Peppers is more scary, no lie. Not only this, but there are several 'dumb-horror-girl' moments that just made me smack my head and think 'why the hell didnt she......', For example; Spoiler ...when she escapes from the cage she is being held in and is able to knock the Creep down by stabbing him with her heel, he drops the long, sharp 'pike' he used to stab at his victims. Of course she dosent pick it up and kill him with it. or when Spoiler George gets killed and the Creep is laying on the floor, she drops the crowbar she is holding and runs away. or Spoiler The Creep has created new holes and tunnels in the subway system, made himself a little operating room, basically designed his whole living area..but he leaves open gaps in the bottom of the cages he keeps his victims in to die?? Yeah okay.. Also for some reason the movie tries to go into some kind of backstory for the Creep, we see some things that give us 'some kind' of look into his past, yet the movie dosent actually bother to explain any of the important details...I mean for example Spoiler Okay so we see the old photo that tells us he was once a normal looking doctor of somekind, and that his name was Craig....okay thats great and all, dont bother to explain how he actually turned from a normal looking human into a psycho killer mutant or anything . I might as well add in this spoiler that the Creeps death scene is also really lame and un-exciting There were just too many 'dumb moments' and parts that were 'partly' explained but didnt bother to 'fully explain', so why bother even giving us those 'partly explain' tid-bits in the first place?? In adition to the fact the Creep himself isnt really scary at all I give this movie a thumbs down, try to see it first before you decide on getting/importing the DVD like I did.
