Directed by Dario Argento
Released in the U.S.
as Creepers, with 28 minutes cut, this is the full-length version of one of the
most bizarre and memorable films from Italian horror maestro Dario Argento. Jennifer
Connelly stars as a young girl with a telepathic connection to insects who is sent to a
Swiss boarding school for girls where the students are falling prey to a killer. Crossing
the elements of a supernatural fairy tale with a harrowing thriller, Argento creates a
truly strange world where maggots, mutants and magic converge. The cast includes Donald
Pleasence and Patrick Bauchau (La Collectionneuse, The State of Things).
Music is provided by Rolling Stones' bassist Bill Wyman, metal bands Iron Maiden and
Motorhead and others. Dubbed in English, with most of the English-speaking
actors supplying their own lines. 110 minutes.
