It'll Give You "Creepers"
, July 24, 2001

Finally a horror movie that does what it's supposed to do--scare the hell out of you!! A brother and sister named Darry and Trish are returning home from college, on a deserted road, when they are almost driven off the road by an unseen driver in an ancient truck. The truck vanishes, and they continue on toward home. But soon they pass an old church, and they spot the driver of the truck--shrouded in a black cloak--apparently dumping bodies down a pipe. After the figure disappears, the two check out the pipe and discover hundreds of skeletal remains. With the help of a psychic woman they discover that an evil, inhuman creature called the Creeper comes back every 23 years for 23 days, and now it wants Darry. Together the brother and sister must flee as they are pursued by the unstoppable, black-shrouded, axe-wielding demon.
First of all the acting is terrific, and the basically unknown actors provide good characters. The make-up effects for the Creeper are also very creepy. The film has a simple plot, that doesn't bother too much with explanations on the creature's origins. It just focuses on the plight of Trish and Darry as they try to escape the wrath of the Creeper. This movie blows every recent horror film out of the water. It is suspenseful, intelligently written, and intensely frightening. All I can say is It's About Time for a No-Holes-Barred FrightFest!!! A truly terrifying movie!
