Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa
In Japanese horror master Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s brilliantly terrifying return to form, an ex-detective named Koichi and his wife Yasuko move into a new house with a deeply strange new neighbor. While Yasuko tries to make friends with the “creepy” Mr. Noshino, Koichi begins investigating an odd missing persons case. But when Noshino’s daughter reveals something shocking to Koichi, he realizes the strange goings-on next door may have something to do with his cold case. Like Sion Sono’s COLD FISH, CREEPY is an insidious study of the evil lurking under the surface in “polite” society.
An ex-detective and his wife move into a new house with a deeply strange new neighbor.

This was all in all an interesting watch. There are some plot holes, but if you can get past them the movie is pretty good. The story is intriguing even if a tiny bit predictable and the actors do a great job. I would totally watch this again. The movie is subtitled, so if that is an issue for you watch something else. If you do decide against it because of that you would be missing out. All in all it is a great thriller and I highly recommend it.
Kiyoshi Kurosawa has yet to steer me wrong.
Terrible decisions made by the characters.
Good development of tension. Solid Asian horror. For those of you that hate on films for having subtitles: learn to read. If you never watch subtitled films you’re missing out on some of the best films in existence. Don’t be a close-minded fool, suck it up buttercup.
