I played the creeper!
23 July 2004 | by dmyers-2See all my reviews

The comments made about this movie are right on the button. It was made for about ten thousand dollars completely out of the directors pocket.

Wes olson had played bit parts on a couple of TV shows including m.a.s.h. and figured he had the knowhow required to make a movie.

I think his main problem was that he was to close to the production and could not stand back and see it as really was. His only sounding board was the camera man who was as inexperienced as he was.

The actors were all from local community theater and had no experience working in front of a camera and it shows. We worked for nothing and Wes got what he payed for. The lead actress was so embarrassed she didn't want to see the movie.

As for myself I had no thought that this would lead to anything so I just did the movie for the fun of it. The experience was worth the time it took and i would do it again, it makes a good story.

If anyone has any questions or comments feel free to email me.
