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 »

You don't go shrinking horror icons.
28 July 2010 | by Vomitron_GSee all my reviews

Well, I just knew before going into this one it was going to be silly & goofy stuff. At least I got that out of it. Other than that, it's a pretty dull film about 4 horror icons (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Werewolf & The Mummy) returning to live (or should I say: materializing into flesh & blood?) as... little people (yes, midgets!). I appreciate Charles Band's goofy take on these legendary figures, but other than that, this movie has not much too offer. THE CREEPS is basically a comedy, mixed with some horror, sci-fi & detective elements. But it's just too silly for its own good. As with practically all the more recent Full Moon movies, the little plot there is always seems to run in circles and there's just not much going on. THE CREEPS is one of the so-so 'new era' Full Moon quickies. Not excruciatingly bad, but just not good enough. If you want to see better, then see DR. MOREAU'S HOUSE OF PAIN (2004). If you want to see worse than THE CREEPS, you could try sitting through PETRIFIED (2006). Anyway, unless you like a lot of names-dropping of several culty and obscure horror-flicks, one pair of naked boobies, a stuttering mad scientist out for world domination and a singing lesbian librarian/walkure and, well, seeing the aforementioned 4 horror icons severely reduced in size & menace, I wouldn't recommend seeing Band's THE CREEPS. I'm surprised good old Charlie never cranked out a sequel to this one. This time reducing these four horror legends to nothing higher than... a bunch of dolls.
