Film 78: Creep

I'm a big fan of Creep. It's a good, solid horror yarn which brilliantly uses its London Underground setting. Not having seen it since the theatrical release, I was delighted to discover the much-missed Ken Campbell in the prologue. Why didn't more film-makers use Ken? The man was brilliant.

Anyway, Creep is not just a fine entry in the 'London Underground horror' subsubgenre, it also slots neatly into the largely literary 'hidden London' category of story. Made with some German money but a very British film and the start of an impressive career for Chris Smith.
