There are quite a few colorful and hilarious characters thrown in the mix that help the film move along at a nice pace.
There is quite a bit of fun, well done gore in this low budget slasher and lots of funny Dialogue and visuals that will have you laughing out loud as well.
The acting is nothing to write home about but good enough to keep your interest and the story is satisfying enough for the die hard slasher fan.
The ending is pretty cliche' but all in all I enjoyed it and would watch it again .
Like the 1970s comedy “Car Wash” part of the charm of Creep Van is that the film is populated with a diverse group of goofball characters. Campbell’s two co-workers are pothead slackers; his roommate wears Luchador costumes and has sex with women in a doghouse; and then there is a small-time gangster/Swami who runs a hippie-like cult and apparently sells pot on the side.
The absurdity of the characters and situations is contrasted by a mysterious, rundown old van whose owner has turned it into a deathtrap on wheels. Metal blades come down and slice victims in half in the windows; pulleys attached to the seatbelts squeeze the life out of seat occupants; spikes shoot through the back of the carseats to impale people; and, well, you get the picture.
The Creep puts a “for sale” sign on the van to attract his victims and Campbell finds himself caught up in the deadly game when he calls about buying the van. Soon he an new girlfriend Amy are fighting for their lives against the man and his van of horrors.
Separately as a straight horror or straight comedy there are a couple of good films here. The problem is the two elements don’t blend all that well. Despite some excessively gory kills it’s hard to take the action all that serious with the rest of the silliness going on. Add to that there’s some serious gaffs.Read more ›
The premise is simple enough. A down on his luck guy, Campbell Jackson, back in town, trying to make his way in the world, gets a job at a car wash. He’s taking the bus to and from work, but he desperately wants to buy a car. He sees a van for sale and calls about buying it. The owner calls back and yells at him. Campbell says forget it and moves on with his life, which includes dating the girl who works the front desk at the car wash. Meanwhile, the owner of the van is going around town killing people with his booby trapped vehicle. The seatbealt is rigged to tighten around whoever is clicked into the seat, there’s a spiked hammer that swings up from the rear of the seat, a knife that shoots out of the seat back, spikes sticking out of the air bag, and the window works as a guillotine.
As the guy becomes more obsessed with harassing Campbell, our hero is less and less interested in buying the van. But when his best friend is killed, then his girlfriend kidnapped, he has to do something to stop the murderous van owner.
See, with a title like CREEP VAN and a synopsis that includes the phrase “booby trapped van”, I’m thinking of something like a miniature version of THE COLLECTOR, or something akin to the SAW movies. I was pretty excited to watch this movie. Until I watched it and saw it’s not being played for terror, but for laughs. Not that CREEP VAN is made to be a knee-slapper, but it’s definitely more silliness than horror.
The tone is way too light, the kills are ridiculously far-fetched, and the acting from the supporting cast was so over the top all around it had to be on purpose.Read more ›
