If there's one thing the history of Full Moon Pictures—makers of such films as Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge and Dollman Vs. Demonic Toys—has proven, it's that there's money to be made from tiny monsters. If there's one thing the history of horror films in general has proven, it's that there's money to be made from the characters of Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, mummies and werewolves. Thus, The Creeps, in which a mad scientist constructs an "archetype inducer" in order to bring to life famous literary monsters—but accidentally brings them back in miniaturized form—was probably inevitable. There's something embarrassingly entertaining about a three-foot-high werewolf, but that and a genuinely strong performance by veteran little-person actor Phil Fondacaro as Dracula are pretty much the extent of The Creeps' charms. It's not all that funny, and not scary at all. However, like most Full Moon movies, it's far from unwatchable, and if you really need a cheesy horror movie, especially one with tiny monsters, you could do a lot worse.
