On paper this film looks like comedy gold but it doesn't live up to expectations.

A mad scientist brings to life Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, a werewolf and a mummy using a machine that creates real beings from fictional literature. However, mid-way through the experiment someone removes the manuscripts from the machine and the monsters emerge as 3 foot dwarves.

The Creeps could have been a goldmine of absurdity. However nothing much happens. The BBFC's 18 certificate is perplexing - Maybe it was the inferred lesbianism - Who knows? There is one brief instance of nudity, but I didn't notice gore or violence. None of the characters die.

The film is drawn out - We wait far too long to see the diminutive Dracula emerge from his pod. The monsters don't do anything particularly out of the ordinary. Dracula can move objects using the power of his mind but his companions just lurch around going `Uuuuurgh' for no particular reason. They could have been easily stuffed into a wheelie bin and kicked down a steep hill.

The acting is atrocious and will appeal to people who watch with a sense of irony. There is a knowing reference to Jess Franco but these things fail to rescue a film with so little substance. The monsters arrive halfway through the film - They talk a bit and a woman briefly goes topless before Dracula and his mates sod off home. The end.

For a more effective stab at films of this nature, hunt down a copy of the Asian James-Bond clone `For Y'ur Height Only'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Midget monsters terrorize the world! 2 Jun 2000
By Chadwick H. Saxelid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This horror comedy is more dorky than funny. A mad scientist steals the rarest of rare first editions of classic monster stories, all so he can bring them to life and rule the world. Well things fall a bit SHORT (ha ha ha ha ha ha) and the classic creatures come out as midgets. Forget that the monsters characterizations are all wrong and that the Wolf Man was created largely in movies and not in a classic book. This movie is just made to laugh at and, as with most of Full Moon's fodder, is quite entertaining in its own moronic way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Phil Fondacara saves this Movie. 12 Oct 2009
By Marvin Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having just sat through this movie for the first time, I would have to say that Phil Fondacaro, who plays Dracula is really the only reason to watch this. He is a solid actor who makes you believe you are looking at Dracula made smaller.I would not say this is a horror movie, because nobody dies. Too bad really, because to watch Phil tear open at least one victims throat would have made it much scarier.It plays out more like a Children's Halloween film, except there is some nudity. There is no foul language that I can remember, so cut out the nude scene and this could be on Nickelodean. I liked it okay,because I love the old Universal monsters...well any monsters for that matter. But if they had played it a little darker,with real threats,and kills,and less hamminess(such as the annoying scientist) this could have been a much more fulfilling watch.I would love to see a sequel made to this, with the monsters really cutting loose. Come on Charles Band, spend another eight hundred dollars, and make us a sequel with blood in it!

3.0 out of 5 stars A review of the DVD, not just the movie! 14 Nov 2001
By Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Ok, Full Moon films are either hit or miss, so I'll skip any type of review and get right to the important stuff -- THE CONTENTS. This is a double sided DVD. On side one you get the feature film and a 15 minute feature called VideoZone. Almost all Full Moon dvds come with VideoZone installments. For the novices out there, the VideoZone is Charles Band's video magazine with news and previews of upcoming features and of course the mandatory making of the film section. Pretty neat stuff with tons of cast interviews and a chance to see Phil Fondacaro guzzling Budweiser (priceless!) Side Two has over 40 trailers from the Full Moon vaults and it's great to see current superstars Helen Hunt, Demi Moore, etc showing up as supporting players in many of Full Moon's classic series like Trancers, etc. The quality of the movie transfer is excellent. All of the graphics and colors are intact. Some of the trailers are not up to par, but they probably are the best available. Charles Band knows that these DVDs tend to be purchased, not rented, and he has taken the extra care to provide a little extra bang for your buck. Sit back, pop open your favorite beverage and enjoy this wacky stuff.

2.0 out of 5 stars ILHM Reviews: The Creeps 2 Feb 2013
By Carl Manes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A crazed scientist steals the original manuscripts for the legendary monsters Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, and Frankenstein so that he can bring them to life using a machine of his own design, but things go horribly wrong when his virgin sacrifice escapes. The creatures are restored, but at only three feet tall! Now, the miniature monsters must track down the girl and bring her back to the lab so that they can be returned to their normal size in order to wreak havoc on the world! Charles Band and Full Moon Entertainment present another tale featuring a group of tiny terrors, this time employing veteran actor Phil Fondacaro in the role of Dracula. Fondacaro takes the character seriously despite the campy nature of the script, and gives one of his best performances to date. Bill Moynihan's stuttering scientist provides more fun with his odd, quirky behavior and foolhardy delusions of control. Additional praise goes to Gabriel Bartalos in charge of the special make-up effects for coming up with a series of excellent design updates for the hideous creeps. Like in so many other Full Moon flicks, the mood is kept light and playful, with story falling second to entertainment. For a cheesy monster romp, these ankle-biters are sure to please!

2.0 out of 5 stars Campy, not Scary 18 Feb 2002
By "tofutirarama" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Is this a horror movie? No. It just isn't scary. But it has midget monsters, what more can one ask for? In spite of the movie's weak plot, script and 59 budget, there are some brilliant camp moments that make the movie worthwhile. Yes, there are the midget monsters, but the reason to get this movie is all for Miss Christina, the lascivious head librarian.
The best scenes in the movie are all the ones with Miss Christina. Think Catherine Deneuve in the horror classic "The Hunger." But think Catherine Deneuve on ecstasy. Miss Christina's over the top sex scene with a rare edition of "Jane Eyre" makes the movie. Never before has anyone made love to a book like Miss Christina. We get teased when Miss Christina briefly comes back from the beyond having been turned into a Viking War Goddess. If only the movie had followed her and left everyone else behind. Miss Christina is played by Kristin Norton - let's hope we see more movies with her - she is hilarious. This lousy movie needs a much better sequel - "Creeps II, The Return of Miss Christina."
