Plot Summary:

A creature is haunting the streets of Los Angeles, waiting for the cover of night to stalk innocent young girls. Hungry for fame and fortune, it’s fueled by a demonic rage ready to devour anyone attempting to hinder its becoming the most powerful entity in Hollywood. While sometimes called A.J. Nelson, this demon is more commonly known as Vic Savage. This is his story…

In 1964, Vic Savage made THE CREEPING TERROR with a microscopic budget verging on the non-existent. Quickly earning a reputation as the worst movie ever made, it tells of the arrival of an unconvincing alien life-form (a shambling carpet creature made of plastic tubing, wire and soap) that devours its picnicking, dancing and guitar-playing victims. Much like the infamous Ed Wood, Savage managed to pull off a variety of schemes to convince an honest producer to invest in what he promised to be “the biggest monster movie ever made”.

Told through re-enactments and containing shockingly true stories of many of the actual people involved with the production, Pete Schuermann’s THE CREEP BEHIND THE CAMERA is the funny and ultimately terrifying saga of the making of THE CREEPING TERROR, and a disastrous portrait of a talentless artist who ultimately succumbs to his own self-destructive behavior. Starring Josh Phillips in the larger-than-life performance as Vic Savage, and Jodi Lynn Thomas (AMC’s PREACHER) as his unsuspecting wife Lois, THE CREEP BEHIND THE CAMERA pays vibrant tribute to an inglorious chapter in the history of genre cinema, incidentally exposing one of the most unimaginably radical antitheses of the Hollywood dream.

"I'm not sure I remember the last time a movie made me laugh so hard one moment then chilled me to my core seconds later. Anyone that has an interest in the seedy underbelly of Hollywood would be well served by The Creep Behind The Camera." ---Mike Snoonian, All Things Horror

"Both disturbing and funny, this film shows just how murky the film industry used to be, and one suspects it hasn't really changed that much. A real delight, not to be missed by any cult film fan." ---Simon, Sci-Fi London

"Schuermann's balance between documentary and docudrama is pitch-perfect, making THE CREEP BEHIND THE CAMERA not only engrossing but thoroughly entertaining." ---August Ragone, Famous Monsters of Filmland
