When my brother and I first saw The Creeping Terror we thought ‘what the hell is this?’ Of course, this was amidst fits of hysterical laughter throughout the entire movie.

Marking the 50th anniversary of "the worst monster movie ever made," The Creeping Terror, Slithering Carpet Films announces the completion of CREEP!, the feature film chronicling the making of the 1964 monster movie and its psychopath director. In addition, CREEP! director Pete Schuermann unveiled the film’s official trailer (2:26).
“The music score and sound mix was the final piece to finishing this film,” said Pete Schuermann. “I’ve been fortunate to work with such amazing talents on CREEP!, including the likes of my brother John [Schuermann]. I’m in awe with the quality of music he was able to create for our movie. He knows his stuff.”
CREEP! cleverly jumps from one genre to another in rapid-fire succession - from a narrative motion picture with documentary overtones to a dark-comedy/drama, all presenting intriguing and telling historic details of “one of the best Hollywood stories that’s never been told,” as described by Harry Medved, co-author of “The Golden Turkey Award.”
In 1964, The Creeping Terror was released to the masses. Pete added, “Back in 1978, thanks to late night TV, an enthusiast could justifiably claim he knew of all the sci-fi monster movies that existed. When my brother and I first saw The Creeping Terror we thought ‘what the hell is this?’ Of course, this was amidst fits of hysterical laughter throughout the entire movie.”
The movie explores Hollywood after the Golden Age of Cinema when America was deep into the Space Race and “drive-in movies” had hit their peak in popularity. A time when production value was often a non-concern and the allure of Hollywood success was undeniable, especially to Art Nelson. CREEP! will be seen as one of the landmark films about the business of show business.
After four years of writing, casting, production, and post-production on this independent feature film, CREEP! is finally ready for its close-up.
"When Pete and I decided to create and produce CREEP!, we realized that our state and community had everything we needed to make it happen right here at the highest level of quality that today's audiences expect.,” said Executive producer Nancy Theken. “Our cast and crew didn't let us down. We are really proud of the film and the Colorado industry professionals that made it happen.

At first watch most viewers find many of the sequences in The Creeping Terror so unbelievably awful and ineptly executed that the movie transcends the sci-fi and horror genres and delves into the realm of comedy. But the story behind the film contains all of the elements of classic movie making that director Art Nelson would have killed to have in The Creeping Terror. Highly comic yet darkly disturbing tales of sex, drugs, rape, money scams, heartbreak, missing persons, suicide, false identities, and ties to the Manson murders make CREEP! a mesmerizing hit. Art Nelson, aka Vic Savage, was a con-artist looking to make a buck. Moviemaking was just one of his weapons of choice. But the methods to Art’s madness in creating The Creeping Terror make Ed Wood’s story seem trivial in comparison. Unlike Ed Wood however, CREEP! is told by the actual people who for better or worse helped bring The Creeping Terror to life.
