The Creeping is a 2022 British horror film in which a concerned young woman moves home to look after her ailing grandmother. She soon finds herself fighting a malevolent presence with a dark secret…

Written, co-produced, directed and edited by Jamie Hooper (shorts: Don’t Peek; Dark Mode; Barbara from Outer Space; Unto Death) – making his feature film debut – from a story co-written with co-producer Helen Miles.

The Cryptoscope Films production stars Anna Reynolds, Jane Lowe, Peter MacQueen, Sophie Thompson, David Horovitch (The Nun; Rebecca; The Chamber) and Taliyah Blair.


The Creeping is a classic haunted house movie that never endeavors to do more than pay homage to the kinds of British classics that made houses scary in the first place. A tapestry of BBC and The Changeling (another alliterative inspiration), it’s a movie with a clear goal in mind. With conspicuous lines drawn between good and evil, fear and hope, The Creeping scares like the best of them.” 3/5 Dread Central

“The film’s pacing feels slow in the beginning, and some plot points don’t make much sense at first. Be patient, because the payoff is absolutely terrific. The Creeping delivers a gut punch that’s unforgettable, as well as good old fashioned thrills.” Screen Zealots
