Picked this one up a while ago and never got the opportunity of watching it due to being low on my priority list, Creep suddenly seemed like it was bumped to the top after reading into it and recently seeing it on a pretty well put together list of the 20 most underrated horror films of the decade. A young fashion model agent finds herself trying to catch up with a friend who has vip club tickets to an event where George Clooney is. Hoping to snag herself a real man, she gets a ride then tries to catch the last subway to the place. From the moment she wakes up to find herself alone and missing the last train, the tension builds as terror stalks Kate and tries to make sure this is the last subway she’ll catch! Now, stuck inside a locked subway station, Kate finds herself confused between what has just happened to her co-worker Guy (whom just attempted to rape her), whether it was a crazy vigilante trying to help her, or if it was killer hungry for blood no matter who’s it is. This sort of atmosphere reminds me of past films such as P2 and High Tension; where one character is fighting for her life against some other force, and somehow bodies find their way onto the screen and start to pile up. Not only are there no stupid characters, but there is not a lot of filler time, stupid dialogue and there is also a beginning scene which sets the mood real well. This film is an example of using the right camera and lighting with minimal extras, but ones that actually count and leave a film stuck in the viewers mind as a good one.
Jimmy: [They have discovered a barely alive Guy on the tracks] What you lookin at me for?
Kate: I don't know. Can we just get him off the rails?
Jimmy: He tried to rape you - let him rot!
Guy: Please - help!
Jimmy: FUCK off!
