Based on a novel by Yutaka Maekawa, "Creepy" follows ex-police detective and criminal psychologist Takakura (Hidetoshi Nishijima), who moves to a quiet suburban town seeking peace and quiet. When a former colleague asks for his assistance on a case involving a disappearing family his investigation leads him to cast suspicions on his peculiar new neighbour.
It's a slow paced movie, no real gore of action but I loved it. As seems to be the norm for Japanese films it has its off kilter madness moments, we're not talking "Visitor Q" or "Uzumaki" madness,no where near that, more of a subtle weirdness.
Great acting and beautifully shot considering the rather drab looking location the film looks great.
Good thriller that is very entertaining from start to finish directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa and as the title implies, it certainly has its creepy moments.
