Oh goodie! Short in screen time but leaving a lasting, chilling impression, Drew Macdonald’s short film Creeper heads to the U.S. festival circuit this month following screenings in the U.K. and Europe. Its U.S. premiere will be this Saturday October 14 at Screamfest in Los Angeles, after which it moves on to Nightmares Film Festival in Columbus and the Austin Film Festival.
The film is fresh off its screening at the prestigious Sitges Film Festival in Spain on October 13, and earlier this month at Grimmfest in Manchester, England.
Creeper is a short stalker thriller that depicts a disturbing scenario that’s all too plausible in contemporary society.
“The film taps into the dangers of peer- to-peer transactional platforms and privacy through a simple suspense story and an unsettling – yet strangely intriguing – antagonist whom the audience is forced to creep around with in the dead of the night,” Macdonald said.
Creeper is written and directed by Drew Macdonald and produced by Chloe Hume. Cinematography is by Jesse Lane, production design by Joseph Tiernan and music composed by Erin McKimm.
Further screenings internationally include Razor Reel at the Flanders Film Festival in Belgium on October 30, and the Australian premiere screening at Monster Fest in Melbourne in late November.
