FEWDIO Horror: Creep

So after posting a brief review of The Easter Bunny is Eating My Candy a little over a month back, I began going through the rest of the Fewdio film catalog. Frankly, there’s enough content to post a review every day for a month … so that’s what I’ll do. I’ll be celebrating Halloween this year by posting a quick review of one of their nightmare videos every day this month. Many of the videos are only two or three minutes long, so it might actually take you less time to just watch them then to read my explanation of why you should watch them.

With all that said, Creep is a nice introduction to the series. It’s all shadows and quiet conversation. The empty passenger seat and lights from passing cars are tricks that Val Lewton would have used in his films. And at two minutes, it gives just enough slow-burn suspense to make the pay-off worth it, without dragging on for too long.

You can check it out on Youtube or Fewdio. And if you want to support the people who make these films, consider picking up the DVD collection, Nightmare House.
