Creep Online Review–Like A Comic Strip
Did you ever read that one Calvin and Hobbes strip where they’re out in the sandbox and Calvin has set up this elaborate plotline? A freight train jumps the track, a jetliner is about to crash, an earthquake is causing a fissure in the earth’s crust and they’re all converging on Farmer Brown’s house, where he’s about to light his gas stove, but doesn’t notice the gas leak?
After all this, the last panel is Calvin holding a train over a log cabin house in the sandbox and saying (of Farmer Brown) “His eye twitches involuntarily”.
This is almost exactly what happens in the Fewdio horror short Creep, in which the stage is almost too perfectly set for mayhem to happen. And mayhem will indeed happen…but like in that perfect Calvin and Hobbes setup, we’ll never actually SEE that mayhem. And that’s okay, if a little bit on the cheap side. Sometimes the best gooshy horror is that which we imagine, and this time, we can definitely imagine a winner. Though after seeing this one and Bedfellows, I’m starting to wonder if they reuse effects….
Anyway, Creep is a fun little two-minute burst of horror that you’ll almost certainly enjoy.
