Creep (Smith, 2004)

"Your journey terminates here."

Atmosphere and an interesting locale can only take a film so far if it doesn't have a solid enough script to fall back on. Unfortunately, Christopher Smith's Creep hasn't a solid base, nor enough atmosphere to sustain the film for even half of its runtime before we start to realize that there isn't really anything there. This isn't to say Smith's film is a failure, far from it. It is simply a film that doesn't stand up well to repeated viewings.
