Title: The Creeping Terror
Post by: Squishy on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
The backstory on this baby is just as much fun as the movie itself. From the IMDB.com listing's "trivia" page:

--(Director) Art Nelson convinced several investors that he was making a big budget horror film and appeased them by offering them small parts for the price of a few hundred dollars each, in exchange for a share in the profits. (This explains why so many people are eaten by the creature to allow the investors their moment of glory.) Just before the film's release, Nelson vanished with a few lawsuits hanging over him, and he hasn't been heard from since.

--(The)entire film is narrated because, while filming a scene on Lake Tahoe, Nevada, director Art Nelson accidentally knocked the sound recording equipment into the lake. There wasn't enough money in the budget to replace it, so Nelson narrated the movie himself in postproduction.

However, I should point out that Art Nelson--at least, according to the correct listing at IMDB, the wrong listing is linked to the "trivia" page--is credited with an acting role in "Jack-O." Brr.

Screenwriter Robert Silliphant also wrote "Monster From The Surf" and "The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies." I don't know if he was related to Sterling Silliphant ("The Swarm").

Personal favorite scene: Fat guy faw down go boom!

I have to admit I did like one scene in The Creeping Terror.
The first girl being engulfed in the dance hall scene had nice legs, stockings and all. Has the bots from mystery science theatre would say, "Sheer Energy". Nothing really else to say about this oh-so-bad movie.

Amplifying Mikes statement, yes, the sound man lost the entire track. Further, the "victims" actually had to pay to be in the film.

The used narration because the film makers lost or screwed up the dialogue tracks, can't remember which. (Read this in some film mag)

So of course they had the video content but no audio. Instead of throwing in the towel at this point, they simply opted to dub in narration. They must have figured this was better than the complete loss of such a great film. lol

Ah yes, the Creeping(emphasis on 'Creeping') Terror...

But, take a close look, and this is what I thought when I first saw this 'cinematic tour de force', isn't the 'mouth' strangely reminiscent of a--er--vagina?

And I can't believe those actors weren't cracking up during takes, trying to climb/squeeze their way into the monster-suit--um--'Creeeeping Terrorrrrrrr'....

Okay, I'm done now...teehee.

I saw this one recently too, and I have to admit the design of the monster was kind of interesting.  (Also the fact that it screamed constantly, but like an asthmatic person.)  While it is obviously a man-in-a-suit, it's not a typical man-in-a-suit.

I would say that whoever designed and built the creature had a lot of imagination but absolutely no talent.

Ah!  My all time favorite horrible movie.

Did you notice that the army rifles oddly sound like
Naval Artillary?

Did you notice that when the Terror attacks the army
(five guys) they all fall over like those green army men
kids used to play with?  One guy, even surruptitiously
looks over at the camera with a questioning look that
says "Isn't this scene over yet?"

Ah, my favorite awful movie.  Seeing footage of this in "it came from hollywood" led me to bad movies.  I hope watching it wasn't too painful.

Oh, how I miss the '60's, in part, at least. This may be the worst film of 1964, but, it is alot more interesting (IMHO) then the best of some forty years later.
And indeed, the director may have been indulging in some sexual fetish, as there is a sexual fetish involving swallowing. As in this case, normal size human beings swallowed by something larger then themselves, or normal size human beings shrunk down to lilliputian size, then swallowed.
Enjoy the film, if you can.

The only way you will ever get me to watch this movie would be to play the MST3K version. I think without Mike and the 'Bots, I'd feel the urge to poke my eyes out. I think the highlight of this movie is the Dance Hall Massacre. That one nameless character who looks and dances like Jerry Lewis was pretty hilarious. Especially when ypou have Crow doing his Jerry Lewis impressions.

An addendum to my addendum: The producer/director, Art Nelson, who charged his investors to be in the movie, disappeared shortly before its release with a satchel of cash and several pending lawsuits. He has not been heard from to this day.

Post by: Chadzilla on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
I remember this movie as being hypnotically bad when I saw it on a late night Creature Feature (hosted by John Stanley).  Nonetheless it is a movie I remember fondly, especially for all those fetish like shots of wiggling women's butts and legs getting slurped up into that shaggy maw (I agree with Tom Servo, the director had some kind of weird bondage/panty fetish that making this movie allowed him to indulge in), and you would be hard pressed to find a slower monster.  Perhaps a Killer Glacier?

Of course, reading both reviews makes me want to watch it again.  As Pinhead once sighed, 'The suffering.  The sweet, sweet suffering!'

This one's the champ, folks.  This is the one I'd give the nod to for "Worst Movie Of All Time", worse than "Manos", WAY worse than "Plan Nine".  

It's painfully, AGONIZINGLY dull and slow, but the first time you see that "monster" shamble toward victims too stupid to get up and walk the other way... makes it all worthwhile.

I saw this, but one time in my life.  I was a boy not 9 years old.  Watching the afternoon Sci-Fi theater on my television.  I thought it stank then too.  :)

I think there are points in the movie where the creature is moving along, and you can see shoes poke out from under its rug.  :D

At some point it can be so bad it's good.  But, not all the way through.

I saw this movie on something called "Shock Theater" here in Georgia back in the 70s.  You see this at a different "angle" when you're 10.  This B&W creature sucking up ladies and such.  Get a funny feeling down there?  Not really.  But I do now.  LOL!  If you asked me back then I would've told you this film was made in the 1930s.  It's very nearly a silent film.  

The MST3K version is very funny.  "He's making his own broth!", "That's it...climb on in!",  "Mom and dad?  This would be a good time to tell your kids the facts of life!", "Well, little Billy, when a monster reeeeeally loves a cars he...",  "Great.  We'll wait here while you kill us"...so many more.  The DVD version of this episode has the untouched version of the film.  Relive those times when you were a kid.

Awesome web site. The best. You got to love these movies. I do. This was my all time favorite worst movie. Some little known trivia. "The Creaping Terror" won the "Worst Movie Award" during some B-movie fest held in Washington D.C. circa 1978. If you look real hard you can see the 3+ Guys in the rubber monster suit. Oh. And don't forget the school house seen. You know the one. Where the school room is filled with school kids and pleanty of exits out the windows and doors in the back of the room. Yet the "Creeping Terror"(all 2 miles per hour of it) is able to devour the entire lot of all the students. No one gets out alive, hehehehe

I love to read peoples' comments on this movie.  I had a couple of family members in it.  My understanding is that the actual monster was stolen right before production, and the creator had to make another monster pronto.  I have seen the original costume, and it was a bit better than the second one they came up with.  Vic Savage (stage name) had also been in some type of motorcycle movie before The Creeping Terror.  It had been named something like 'Street Fighter', but not the present day 'Street Fighter' after the video game.  I have never seen that movie.  As far as I know, a lot of the movie credits given to him are incorrect because he had died before they had even been made.  Enjoyed reading your posts!  I love what MST3000 did with the movie.  We thought the movie had disappeared from the face of the planet years ago.

 I, too, was awed by this stinker when I saw it on Creature Features" in the late 1970s. There's a LOT of mystery surrounding this flick(I spoke to Forry Ackerman about it years ago...he claims it wasn't even made in Lake Tahoe) The most interesting name associated with this is William Thourlby....he appeared in a lot of B films, and produced the obscure slasher/noir drama "Angel's Flight" before becoming a best-selling author of men's fashion books. He was also the first "Marlboro Man" model.

Great! I like your review, but i have to confess something im not ahamed of:
I really do like the movie. really, I do.
Why? there is indeed a sexual fetish called swallowing, or "vore", which is about being sexual aroused by this type of situations (eat/being eaten). There are a number of sites on the net that cover this. The movie is horribly made, with dull charachters, and an argument that seems to have been made on the go, but it is the woman eatin scenes that make it worth watching. Go, Terror, go!

This movie is high art. As you recall scenes to someone; you notice how great it is. The noise created when being et, the legs wiggling into the maw; the awesome dialoge by the narrator about Barney and Brent at the friendship; the "keep moving" repeated over and over by the army guy; Barneys assault inside the ship; the bald guy's double take; the Hootenenny; fishing with gramps; the mother and baby; the dance hall - Miss gold pants and the wacky dancer, how everyone runs into the maw instead of getting away. Oh man i could just go on, this is a great piece of bad filmmaking. Creep on!

This was a rather silly movie.  I believe that the main character was actually played by John Kerry(the guy that lost to Bush in the last election).  There is a striking resemblance.

Post by: Sam Longoria on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
I have a copy of the original script of "Creeping Terror,"
given me by Harry Medved. I think his "Golden Turkey Awards" bad movie book picked "Plan 9" over "Creeping Terror" as the worst film of all time, because Harry and his brother Michael were on a deadline, and couldn't find any production stills from "Creeping Terror."

There is no other feasible explanation,
for I know them to be honorable men.

Wanta know something really scary?
The script isn't bad. It's pretty readable. "The Creeping Terror" is not a bad movie because it had a bad script. It's really truly bad because the Producer/Director was a really truly bad Director.

I love the narration over everything too, (yes, the original sound was lost, and horribly distorted, and they had to narrate everything).
"Todd told the General, the Creature had been caused to mutate by atomic radiation."

The girls' screams are on a loop, so they repeat and repeat without any change in inflection.
"Aeehhhh!" "Aeeehhhh!"  And that music...

The monster looks like carpets stapled together at the edges, with guys underneath, with clown shoes on their knees, and a big hole in the front for the er, mouth.
It's clearly designed to look like both male and female genitalia at the same time, decorated with oddly-familiar structures, and big clumps of yarn and fur.

Yes, guys arms reach through the hole at times, to pull screaming girls into the monster's er, mouth.

The "Creeping Terror" was made in 1964, and my friend Richard Edlund says he thinks he shot the titles for it when he was at Westheimer effects. The movie is made even more stunning by how good the titles are, then how incredibly mind-numbingly bad the movie is.

I saw it first, late late one night on CBC Canadian TV,
it looked interesting - Hollywood titles, and then it was just unrelentingly, hypnotically bad, for every frame, all the way to the very end.

Even really bad movies have occasionally adequate moments,
but not "The Creeping Terror." Not one good frame.
Not a single one. It is pure.

Watching it is like being struck in the forehead by a mallet.  Pungent, like a very smelly, very old cheese.

Unlike a cheese, "Creeping Terror" kept me going for years,
because watching it gave me hope, and made me realize something terribly important.

No matter how bad my footage, or low my budget, if I pulled my eyes out and tied them in a square knot across the bridge of my nose, and they locked me in a sack and set it on fire, and threw it off a bridge into the river, and it was washed out to sea and I died and sharks ate me, and I settled to the ocean floor as shark poop,
any movie I would make after that...

...would still be better than "The Creeping Terror!"

And - as bad as it was and is for all eternity, and I'm still convinced it's worse than anything, worse than "Astro-Zombies" worse than "Wild Women of Wongo," and as for "Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes" hah!

"KT" was written to be bad on purpose, and is actually intentionally funny in places, and it has a real helicopter crash in it, which is really cool. The worst you can say about "KT" is, it is merely incompetent. It is bad, to be sure, but not this bad.

We're talkin' really truly stinkin' horribly bad here,
for which "Creeping Terror" is eminently qualified,
it is in a class by itself.

And here is the amazing thing. Even as bad as it is,
"Creeping Terror" got made, it got finished, and
most incredible of all things in the whole world...

It got DISTRIBUTED!

It's on tv at this very moment, playing somewhere in the world. I tried to rent it for a screening once, and the distribution company quoted me some incredibly high price $3k I think, and they didn't care when I didn't go for it, because it goes out and plays all the time,
and apparently they get their price.

If you think anything is worse, you haven't seen it, or maybe you were stoned. There is a secret brotherhood to those who have seen and enjoyed this unique production.

As Harry wrote me, "Anybody who has seen "The Creeping Terror," and understands it to be the worst film of all time, is a friend for life."

There has to be a bottom to everything, and in my opinion,
"The Creeping Terror" is it!

Wow. What can one say about "The Creeping Terror"? It's heinously bad cinematography, the lack of a story plot, the hideousness of the acting, the creature that looks like a carpet and a vaccum cleaner got into a fight that make this movie special.
The fact that the film crew was so incompetent that they knocked the sound equipment into the lake and had to use a narrator because they didn't have the budget to replace it amazes me. Truly this is a movie sent to us from the B-Movie Gods.
If you have not seen this movie I suggest renting it (with or without the MST commentary) and watching it with a group of B-Movie lovers (some will still be in the closet) at about 1 in the morning with a thing of popcorn and lots of highly caffienated beverages.

  Harry and Michael Medved have a chapter dedicated to "Creeping Terror" in their book "Son Of Golden Turkey Awards", including an interview with Robert Silliphant. One thing of note: the girl who played Brett was "Art Nelson"'s girlfriend. She was also only 16 years old when the picture was made. And the guy who did the narrative in the movie also did a number of driver's ed films....

This isn't one of those bad movies it stinks that it's funny bad.It is just plain bad in the worst way.This ranks as bad as Herschel Gordon Lewis's Monster A Go Go.Come to think of it,that also has a narrator talking pretty much throughout that bombanation as well.I don't know which is worse of the two movies.Both are p**s poor movies and just drag on end.

The thing about Monster A Go Go though,is that the said monster isn't really a monster.It is a human with scar tissue all over his face from radioactivity.I guess one could say that what makes him monsterous is the fact that he is really ugly looking in the looks department and that he is real tall.About 7ft5,and if that isn't enough to scare anyone than nothing is.The film itself sure isn't scary.

What scared me the most was the great name he had Doug,and that was the only thing that was scary about the movie.Just kidding,but Monster A Go Go,along with The Creeping Terror,are both huge stinkers.Throw in The Eye Creatures with John Ashley and you have 3 huge stinkers.And all 3 are just plain unwatchable.

Saw the post by dreibel, and wanted to make a correction.  The actress playing Brett was actually about nineteen or twenty at the time.  She graduated from highschool in 1961.


Title: The Creeping Terror
Post by: Allan Silliphant on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
 I wrote the original nine page story outline. Art Nelson,
 who I understand was a Mohawk Indian from New York State,
 came to my sound stage rental studios, in Glendale, to
 discuss renting my facilities. Somehow, I mentioned that
 my older half brother was very famous screen&tv writer,
 Stirling Silliphant. Nelson had made a film in New York,
 a couple of years earlier called "Street Fighter". He
 confided that rather than make a follow on sequel to
 his first film that he would consider doing something
 else...perhaps a sci-fi movie. My half-brother had written
 the MGM (english) classic, "Village of the Damned" and
 was famous for creating "Naked City", "Route 66", and
 writing so many of the "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" shows.
 I mentioned that I was also a writer...This pushed his
 button... he asked me if I'd like to come up with a
 story line, for the princely sum of $1500. I was a 23
 year old struggling to start a studio business,so the
 money(same as $10,000 now) seemed like a very good deal!
 He, asked me, almost casually..."What kinda monster am
 I 'gonna deal with?" I had to think fast, as the conver-
 sation had been almost chit-chat, until I realized we was
 offering my a deal. Something really ugly!(still thinking)
 ...an kind of giant slug that eats people! Great! says
 Nelson, almost salivating. There are two of them,that
 crash in a space ship, One remains in the ship and eats
 the scientists who come to reason with it,the other
 escapes into a mountian lake...Lake Tahoe! I was making it
 up as we spoke.  He liked the pitch! I was half kidding but
 he really wanted a story and was really going to pay me!
 "The one that is in the Lake, will keep coming out and eat
 a lot of people, first isolated, like a grampa and kid
 fishing, then maybe raise havoc in a Tahoe Casino",
 Nelson was eating it up!"The thing can come into a drive in
 movie theater,(the likely venue for the movie to play in)
 and pull down the windows and suck the folks out of the
 cars!" Why is he doing this eating, so much?" Nelson asks.
 "Because he's not the creature who built the ship...he's
 just a mindeless, voracious, invertebrate animal who has
 to eat. The irony comes out in the end that they were sent
 here to "sample" the available protein, and send back the
 data to the home planet, who might want to take over the
 earth at some future date." A further irony mentioned was
 that the ship had transmitted the data to a place millions
 light years away...so even since the transmission went out,
 it wouldn't likely lead to an invasion, any time soon!
 I guess Nelson asked me, because he thought people might
 think my brother was involved some way. He never worked
 with a finished script, I'm told. From what I heard, he
 lots and lots of people being eaten to get them into the
 movie after investing. I'm told the whole thing was finally pulled together to avoid prosecution! The tracks
hadn't been tranfered properly for one reason or another.
A local radio news man did the famous narration.

Great review! My favorite line, the same one MST chose for the stinger - "My God! What is it?" The way it is delivered is fantastic, in fact I used it as a greeting on my answering machine for awhile. It amused me to no end. I also love the dance hall music 'ba da da da da da, ba da da da da da, ba da da da da da'. "I gotta get in there- it sounds so hot!"

The only way to watch this is with Mike and the Bots of MST3K,but you can watch it without them,too,but trust me,would you really want to?? What I don't understand(and maybe it doesn't matter)is why the director would allow his actors to get "eaten" instead of running away?? The woman hanging her laundry outside,the couple sitting on the rock and so on..Was this suppose to create horror?? Maybe it was a turn on for the director to show the women's legs while the monster is eating them.Who knows!! It makes for a so-bad-it's-good monster movie and I'm glad MST3K was there to help me get through it...Thanks guys! Gb

I was amazed at how SLOW the creature was. The people in the film stood and looked at the creature as if to say, "Hurry up and eat me!". Honestly, how did they NOT escape? Al it would take is to casually walk away. In fact, I spent most of the film yelling and screaming at the TV for the people to walk away.

Things I learned from this film:

-Women DO, in fact, scream with the assistance of another woman while being eaten. This is displayed in the video - listen, there ARE two people screaming!  :bouncegiggle:

-Narrators are annoying. I think this guy was worse than "Future events affect you in the future" guy from Plan 9.

-The acting in this is worse than the acting in Plan 9. Seriously, I thought the people in Plan 9 were bad, but at least they didn't speak in monotone. "My god, what is it..." was about as convincing as the dogs in Killer Shrews.

-Plan 9 is no longer the worst film ever.

Sure, this may not have flying saucers that are 6 inches wide (Watch the graveyeard landing scene - the 'gravestones' are bigger than the ship) or "That's nothing from this world", but that monster is HILARIOUS.

And I'll say it again: WHY DIDN'T THE PEOPLE WALK AWAY? I said walk, not run - you could move an inch a minute and it wouldn't catch you. Instead, people just stood there. I can understand the girls not running though - in old horror films, they always fall over a perfectly placed tree branch.

... Even really bad movies have occasionally adequate moments, but not "The Creeping Terror."  Not one good frame.  Not a single one. It is pure.

I have to disagree slightly with this.  Go to about 58:12 into the MST3K version (don't know about the uncut time), where some people are trying to escape from the dance hall.  A woman is trying to get out, but a man grabs her and violently pulls her away from the door.  He accidentally rips her dress off, and there are several frames of her bare breasts!   :buggedout: :teddyr: :tongueout:  So there are about 30 good frames in this movie.

I have to admit I didn't catch it myself; I read about it on another movie site.  I have looked, though, and they are there.  The woman obviously knows her breasts are showing, as she covers them up, but the other "actors" keep on "acting".

Another great quote:

Narrator: The Sergeant, a shaken man, returned babbling about what had happened. Realizing the full danger of the situation, decided he had only one means left to stop the monster: Grenades. Now Bradford made a drastic move. Acting on his superior authority, he forbade Caldwell to destroy the creature. The Colonel, more concerned with saving human lives than advancing Science, told Bradford to "Go to Hell."

He has already snagged interviews with film critic Michael Medved, Harry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News and much of the original cast and crew of the The Creeping Terror and hopes to establish that this cheesy monster movie truly is the worst film of all time.
 
But the real monster was behind the camera. As the interviews reveal, director Art Nelson was a con man, pimp and part-time prostitute who was known to "audition" 13-year-old girls and completed the film only because he was threatened with jail time if he didn't.

 :thumbdown: :thumbdown:Aaaarrrhhhhh!!  This film is horrible, horrible.  Need I say more?  OK, horrible.  I really like the scene where the slow, shuffling magic carpet ride (oops!) goes into the dance and slowly, painfully collects various babes (pardon me, ladies) and sucks them into it's might jaws.  Last thing seen of each victim is a pair of high heels which the gals had been twisting in just moments before. 
Military types in his awful opus are more than just incompetent, they are very similar to the actual armed services.  They charge standing right into the thing and get eaten or blown up by their own grenades.  Oouch!  Oh, the horror!!
Well, I could go on but I won't.  Whew!  I know all of you are just as relieved as the actors who were eaten and could leave this woeful tale of sci-fi misery. :bouncegiggle:

I hope you garbled your meaning and this is not what you meant to say.  Speaking as one with personal knowledge (military family, 6 years active duty including Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm), as flawed as some of our military may be, overall I would not call our armed services "more than just incompetent".  I believe Andrew would agree.

I used to think Plan 9 from Outer Space was bad ....The Creeping Terror was worst, but I would love to have a copy of this on DVD. I used to watch this movie late night on TV. I always got a kick out of the acting and the fact that there was no music in background. Then I found out years later that they lost the soundtrack to the movie and had to dub in a narrator. This is one movie that is safe from being a remake.

Ahhhhhh...The Creeping Terror.... It does creep along, that's for sure. The movie creeps along too! But Terror? No. Laughs? Yes! This is one of my all-time favorite bad movies. The woman who actually has to turn herself around to get in the monster's mouth. The guy who pushes his girlfriend into the monster to be eaten, the grandfather's fall into the river, and so much more is what keeps me coming back gain and again. "Bobby? Baaaaa-beeeeeee!

I love it!

Where'd they get the idea for this monster? It looks like a giant caterpillar with a stick head, and a big mouth.
