It’s the 50th anniversary of ‘The Creeping Terror.’ We’re looking to debuting our film in conjunction with the milestone of the movie that inspired me to direct.

Creators of the Colorado-made feature film “The Creep Behind The Camera,” formerly known as “CREEP!” today announced its acceptance into IMAGINE Film Festival in Amsterdam. The world premiere set for April 10 will be a part of a weeklong celebration of all films fantastic.

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, a.k.a. Vic Savage. “The Creep Behind The Camera” will be seen as one of the landmark films about the business of show business.

“IMAGINE is the perfect stage for our film; it’ll fit right in with their sci-fi-loving audience,” said Pete Schuermann, director of The Creep Behind The Camera. “Not to mention, it’s the 50th anniversary of ‘The Creeping Terror.’ We’re looking to debuting our film in conjunction with the milestone of the movie that inspired me to direct.”

When “The Creep Behind The Camera” director Pete Schuermann first came across “The Creeping Terror” as a kid in 1978, a film so bad it’s comedic, he had no idea that the real creepy crawly was behind the camera. The dark comedy docu-drama chronicles the making of the 1964 monster movie “The Creeping Terror.” Now, after four years of writing, casting, production, post-production, and a name change, the independent film “The Creep Behind The Camera” is finally ready for its close-up.

IMAGINE Film Festival is a member of the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation (EFFFF). For more information on “The Creep Behind The Camera,” visit

About The Creep Behind The Camera: 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, bank robberies, Nazism, missing persons, suicide, false identities, and ties to the Manson murders make The Creep Behind The Camera 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, The Creep Behind The Camera is told by the actual people who for better or worse helped bring The Creeping Terror to life.
