Trivia

Advertising posters showing a bloody hand sliding down a London Underground train window were banned from the Underground as being in bad taste, even though scenes had been filmed with permission in disused stations on the Underground. Producer Julie Baines found this "highly amusing" and "a bit ludicrous", noting that the film is "not based on real events - if it is, we are all in trouble." The ban was later removed, although not in time for the film's British opening. See more »

Goofs

Kate runs to the rear cab of the train and passes through the cab door (car number 96115 displayed above it) however the cab interior and exterior is of a car of long since withdrawn 1967 type stock (car number 3329 can be seen on the outer door behind her) whilst the train she was actually on (car 96115) is modern 1996 Jubilee Line stock.

Kate: I mean, it sounds a little weird nobody's in charge here
Kate: [after no answer] Excuse me? Would you mind answering me? You're starting to freak me out!

Effectively made horror thriller
18 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Unmissable **** Very Good *** Okay ** You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead * Avoid At All Costs

Stuck-up career bitch Kate (Franka Potente) heads to the London underground to catch a train to take her to meet George Clooney. However, after a hectic working day, she dozes off and awakens to find herself alone in a deserted platform. As she races off on a situation taking her from one daunting encounter to the next, however, she learns of something far more malign and evil waiting for her out there.

In a lot of ways, the British Film Industry is really becoming one on it's own, especially in the horror thriller department, with films such as Creep and the successful 28 Days Later (which this has strong echoes of in parts.) In terms of succeeding in what it set out to do, Creep does cleverly create (especially at the beginning) a scary sense of isolation and tense fear. At it's clever running time, it also (though inadvertently, I suspect) manages to pay homage to some of those pioneer high-concept horror films from the 70s that rely on shocks and fear through-out without really focusing too much on character development and such.

Of it's weaknesses, some scenes are a little predictable, but these don't really succeed in making it less scary or effective in any way. I'm not sure if the ending was meant to make it come off as some sort of morality play and it's not exactly perfect, but it's certainly very effective and serves it's basic function very well. ***
