Trivia:
Filmed in StereoVision 3D: The movie was shot in 35mm using Chris Condon StereoVision lenses. These lenses utilize a 3-D filming technique called "over and under." During filming, a normal 35mm film frame is exposed by two lenses (one for each eye view) instead of one. The entrance elements of each lens are side-by-side. After prismatic re-orientation, the exit elements are oriented such that the top half of the film frame is exposed by one lens and the bottom half of the frame by the other lens. Hence, the name "over and under."See more »

THE CREEPS...a small accomplishment!, 6 September 2013
Author: goryverbinski from United States

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Dracula, Frankenstien, Mummy, and the Wolfman were reduced to half? That is to say, little people. Well, neither did I until I came across the Creeps online. Anyway, the answer is "not much." Seriously, nothing relevant happens in this movie. the miniature horror icons just sort of wander around for 70 minutes as the script (that was probably written on a cocktail napkin) just seems to rely on the same one note joke that is "they're small". Never the less, This movie is a riot, and while it doesn't offer much by way of gore, it is still one hell of a little (no pun intended, cough cough)B movie. The whole thing plays out like the ugly cousin to a bad seasonal, made-for-TV, Disney movie. That being said, there is some nudity, but thats about it. Also, Phil Fondacaro (Ghoulies 2, Bordello of Blood) is Excellent as Dracula. I say check it out.
