Creepy

Eureka Entertainment are releasing Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s macabre and unsettling thriller Creepy. It’s available on a dual format DVD and Blu-Ray disc presentation.

What do the critics think?

The Guardian , giving it 4 stars, says that Kurosawa makes a return to the goosepimpled values of classic J-horror. The Observer, the Sunday edition of The Guardian, says that some horror films creep, and Creepy moves with the softest of steps, the slow burn paying dividends.
