The first thing I noticed about Tim Ritter's Creep is all the trippy colors, that were seemingly only there to mask the unfortunate looks of that stripper, Kascha played by Kathy Willets. Kascha has a brother named Angus, played to perfection by the legendary, Joel D. Wynkoop. Angus is a serial killer who was in jail for armed robbery, and he recently escaped. Angus hooks up with his sister, together they kill her abusive husband. Meanwhile, a pair of Father and daughter cops are on their trail, but Angus and Kascha don't seem too concerned, they just want to go play in there mothers grave site, both were abused by their sadistic/drug-addicted parents, so I guess that would kind of make sense. At this point, all I can say is, things won't end up like anything resembling what you might think. And just nevermind the fact that Creep was shot on video, as this movie totally rises above. Creep is incredibly fast-paced, and unpredictable, with a decent script tolerable acting (as if it matters). Let's just say, Creep really keeps you on your toes. As politically incorrect as it wants to be, Creep includes such hi jinx as cocaine in the baby food, the humiliation and murder of a fat man, more than enough references to incest to go around, and even our pal, Asbestos Felt drops in for a visit, it's Floridian fun for the whole family, courtesy of Twisted Illusions. Wynkoop does a great job at adding the perfect combination of sleazy and psychotic to the character of Angus, although, Ritter could have done better at casting Kascha. For a much better Tim Ritter Movie, check out Killing Spree, but if you're looking for something more mean-spirited, then Creep it is. I'm sure I would like this a lot more if it weren't shot on video and would probably rate it higher. Anyone who shoots their films on video knows they have to try even harder to impress the viewer (Darkness, Shatter-Dead) I, for one, am fairly impressed. This is modern Exploitation, straight out of the 60's Drive-in. Long live Florida Gore. 7/10
