| Entertaining, but not all that
I found parts of this movie, mainly the beginning to be very promising. I really thought that it was going to be an 'on the edge of your seat' horror film and the opening had all the tension and weirdness that one needs to set that kind of atmosphere. But as the movie progressed, even though it never sunk to being bad or even mediocre (no Friday the 13th B.S. here), I think it became a little bit of a disappointment because it didn't live up to the promise that it made in the beginning. And although I like to let my mind fill in the blanks, there was a lot that went unexplained that made it so that I wasn't really satisfied by the time it finished. I didn't recognize the names of the actors or the director, and they were neither here nor there for me - that's not to say that I thought the performances were bad, they definitely were fitting and on the mark for the genre. It's just that they didn't really stick out for me.

All of the above being said, if the movie was on cable on a cold winter night, I'd probably relent and watch it again - it's certainly better than most in it's category, but would I recommend it as a 'great' film? No, probably not.

Trivia

The carving of what appears to be some kind of demon in the worktable. At first, it could be interpreted that it is the work of a serial killer who worships the devil. Later, it becomes clear that it's a self-portrait.

Alternate Versions

Special Edition DVD contains a supplemental section featuring numerous scenes that were deleted or shortened. They include:

  • Slightly altered opening scene; also includes some additional dialogue in which the kids talk about their mother.
  • A longer sequence the Creeper eating the tongue (which was originally trimmed to avoid an "NC-17" rating).
  • The initial scene inside the church basement is slightly extended.
  • Longer sequence inside the car on the way to the diner.
  • Longer strip-a-cop sequence.
  • The scene where the Creeper attacks the kids in the road (after killing the Cat Lady) is slightly extended.
  • Longer phone call home.
  • Longer sequence of the Creeper entering the police station.
  • An alternate ending in which the final shot in the theatrical ending was more of a subtle insinuation that a graphic display of what happened.
