This morning I was browsing the Internet Archive, as I often do on Saturday mornings, and found The Creeping Terror among their video offerings. It's a 1964 movie featuring no actor you've ever heard of. In fact, browsing the cast's credits on the Internet Movie Database reveals that a large percentage of the actors reached the pinnacle of their two to three movie careers with The Creeping Terror.
Although it's only an hour and sixteen minutes long, the movie is nearly impossible to watch in its entirety in one sitting.
But luckily, the highlight of the movie takes place at the 4 minute 30 second mark, when the monster emerges from a space ship.
The best description I can think of is one of the dragon puppets from a Chinese New Year's parade, except made out of shag carpet. The front of the costume is in the shape of the waddling human front operator. The trailing end of the costume seems to be at least one person walking on all fours. Another comparison might be to a very primitive two-person horse costume.
The sound track is another notable feature. I particularly like the klezmer-influenced organ music played when the police car is racing to the rescue at the one hour and seven minute mark. There are so many wacky elements to this movie that it makes me wonder why "Plan 9 from Outer Space" is considered notably bad.
My very favorite thing about the movie is a characteristic I've also noticed in Mummy movies. How could the creature really catch anyone? It's moving so slowly that you could escape from it at a leisurely pace, periodically turning to thumb your nose at the hairy slug-like thing.
My goal is to attempt a complete viewing of the movie in one sitting. So far I've watched it in five minute chunks, periodically skipping around finding cinematic gems.
I've embedded it here for your edification. Enjoy.
