DENVER, July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gravitas Ventures, an international, independent film distributor, announces the worldwide release of the film The Creep Behind the Camera on August 4, 2015 on video on demand and pay per view (VOD/PPV). The film will air on 73 VOD/PPV platforms including Comcast, DirectTV and Dish. The film is also currently available for pre-order on iTunes.
The Creep Behind the Camera is a rare Kickstarter success story from inception and now release. The film gained fans following its 2014 tour of international film festivals including Fantasia Film Festival in Canada, Imagine Festival in Amsterdam, Pollygrind Las Vegas, Sci-Fi London, and LA Screamfest in Hollywood. Film and TV legends such as Mystery Science Theatre 3000's Trace Beaulieu and Frank Conniff are big supporters of the film as well as director Joe Dante, director of Gremlins. Since the tour, the film has earned an 8.3 rating on IMDB.
Directed and written by Pete Schuermann of Slithering Carpet Films, LLC, and produced by Nancy Theken, The Creep Behind the Camera follows the making of 1960s classic film The Creeping Terror and the story behind Hollywood's historic con artist, Vic Savage (also known as Art Nelson). In the 60s, Savage conned unsuspecting investors into thinking he was making the best monster movie of all time, but little did he know, he'd end up making the worst. The 2014 dark, twisted comedy shows that the true creep was behind the camera the entire time.
"We are honored to receive so much support from experts in the industry such as Beaulieu, Conniff and Dante," said Pete Schuermann, director and writer. "I'm happy to see our crew and cast get recognized for all their hard work."
The film's Colorado-based cast and crew have also gained visibility in other films. Jodi Lynn Thomas ("Lois") is co-starring in CW network's "The Messengers," Laurel Harris ("Helen") was featured in 2014's The Maze Runner and 2013's Odd Thomas. Bill LeVasseur ("William") is the star and host of The Weather Channel's Brainstormers.
In addition to the film's on-demand release, Shout Factory TV will release the Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode of the classic film, The Creeping Terror, with special bonus material containing the extended trailer of The Creep Behind the Camera and a Q&A session with Trace Beaulieu and Frank Conniff at Screamfest Horror Film Festival in Hollywood, California, October 2014. The re-release of The Creeping Terror episode will hit stores in August, 2015.
