Below is the list of Creepy Six Films’ in-house productions spanning 2001 – 2012. 2016 marked Creepy Six Films’ 15th Anniversary, which we celebrated with brand new editions and new releases of all of our films! Available in THE STORE!
CARMILLA (2004 /2008)
Official selection of Shockerfest LA, 2003 (Director’s Selection). 2004 International / DVD release (The Asylum)
THE TOTALLY UNCUT VERSION! Based on the classic tale of vampires & lesbians by J. Sheridan Le Fanu.
When young heroine Jenna Fontaine falls victim to a strange vampiric plague, causing all sorts of wild hallucinations, she takes off with her father Travis to seek out and eradicate the source of the vile infection…
But Carmilla has other plans for Jenna… And soon they’ll find themselves facing off against Catholic school-girl zombies, cannibals, demon nuns, and the ferocious vampire locked Travis’s own trunk! …All while Carmilla is slowly seducing Jenna’a body and soul….
A new take on the Le Fanu classic, complete with surreal plot twists and a wild splatter-punk finale to compliment the original erotic storyline and apocalyptic backdrop in this totally off-the-wall horror-action-comic vampire-lesbian story…
Carmilla is the ORIGINAL UNCUT, UNRATED version of Creepy Six Films’ 2004 flick starring American scream queen Brinke Stevens, originally released by The Asylum as Vampires vs Zombies in the U.S. and Canada with an R-rating, where over three full minutes of gore and undead mayhem were cut from the movie in order to acquire a suitable rating for mega-store video rental chains. Although Vampires vs Zombies was released uncensored overseas, this original version has now been fully remastered & restored and includes a slightly different opening and a little more eroticism and nudity than even the uncut International release.
(2004 Asylum DVD release and 2008 Unearthed Films Special Edition release are both currently out-of-print.)
HEADS ARE GONNA ROLL (2004)
This over-the-top gangster comedy/revenge thriller was shot in the middle of the Carmilla production, utilizing the entire cast of Carmilla, and was first released in 2004 as an extra feature on the Vampires vs. Zombies DVD by The Asylum.
A remastered 16×9 version was re-released by Unearthed Films on the Carmilla Special Edition DVD in 2008.
Starring American cult icon Brinke Stevens (also from Carmilla).
Available on the CARMILLA DVD
HUMAN NATURE (2004)
2004 International / DVD release (The Asylum)
Two years before the term “torture porn” was dropped on Eli Roth’s gore-out extravaganzas (Hostel and Hostel 2) we had written, produced, shot and cut our serial killer/domestic prisoner gore-a-thon pre-torture porn opus, “Human Nature”. Only after we’d released this had we discovered that there was actually a Charlie Kaufman-scripted movie by the same name, released around the same time. I hope too many people didn’t get these mixed up! At any rate, theirs had Tim Robbins and Patricia Arquette in it, ours had a serial killer and a call girl who’s held hostage in his garage. That was pretty much the thrust of our plot held within what is actually our only completely (and coherently) linear film to date. An aesthetic fact that, in itself, is somehow unsettling.
Designed as a low-budget breakneck-scheduled horror one-off, we shot the entirety of this film in nine days, executing deliberately long single-takes as its palate – which only lent to the unnerving style of its linear nature.
“Of course, we realize that telling a story within a linear structure is par for the course for most people. Unfortunately, my brain just never really ticked that way when constructing storylines (as anyone who has seen Vampires vs. Zombies can attest to). For us, both the content and the far-out idea of linear structure was paradox to our usually good-humoured and totally fragmented and timeline-twisting narratives.”
HELL HATH NO FURY (2006)
Official Selection of the 2006 FANTASIA Film Festival in Montreal…
“Eroticism mixed with white knuckle terror in a blood soaked horror anthology that is sure to test the endurance of even the most hardened gorehound. Inspired by the unhinged grindhouse films of the 1970s and 80s, these six gruesome tales take place in a world where women aren’t afraid to exact horrific revenge on those who dared wrong them. Simultaneously sexy, disturbing, and exhilarating, these tales of female revenge will both titillate and terrify.”

In this one, I was really practicing my idea of a non-linear narrative with my short segment, “Prey”. This one starred the lovely Jennifer Angiers (who shows up on the audio commentary) as a cop who tries to outwit a rapist only to have him outdo her. Only to have her come back for bloody revenge, of course. I was cutting half of this feature film, and after I worked on Ryan Nicholson’s segment “Torched” for a mere two weeks, I spend the next five months cutting Prey – 17 times.
I think to date Hell was one of my favorite experiences, from the production to the first screening at the Cinematheque in Vancouver in the summer of ’05 (could we really have shot Plotdigger Films’ Live Feed in between?!) to the Fantasia Film Fest in ’06… to the dismal international release a year later. Oh, well, we now (finally) have all the rights back to this film, and we plan on doing a little remastering re-releasing of our own (without going too George Lucas on its ass)… Stay tuned – 2016!
