Verdict on The Creeping
The Creeping is a horror mystery following a young woman who returns to her childhood home. She gets to learn what happened to her loved ones thanks to spending time with her grandmother. It leads to her needing to learn what the truth is before finding herself becoming the latest victim of a malevolent presence in the home.
This is a horror movie that revolves around a mystery in the family. It sees the youngest member needing to learn about their past if she is ever going to let them escape the horrors. This gives us a nice mystery to see unravel while giving us the standard expect scares. Certain special effects are not the strongest, especially when it comes to the ghostly figure. The performances are strong throughout the film with Rainn Steele getting the most out of her performance.
Final Thoughts – The Creeping has solid scares, a nice mystery and strong acting.
