Some loser living in Detroit without a car finds a job washing and
detailing cars. The cashier girl develops an interest in him. His boss
likes him, but his co-workers don't. Apparently he rents a room in a
house of some sexually adventurous people. Eventually he decides to buy
the cheapest car he can find. Nearby parked is an old van. He calls the
owner but gets no response. Then the owner starts calling him and
harassing him. We've seen this van before. It and its owner have killed
a bunch of random people gruesomely. The van is rigged with all sorts
of devices to brutally kill people. It's like a moving Saw trap.
Our loser runs into a strange customer. It's Swami Ted who forgets a bag full of marijuana at the car wash, which is quickly picked up by the other employees. Ted blames the loser and threatens him if he doesn't return the drugs, when suddenly the van appears and nearly runs over Ted, if the loser hadn't saved him. Now Ted is grateful and offers to help him whenever necessary.
Eventually the creep in the van grabs the girl and the loser and Ted will have to confront the creep.
Creep Van is an endearing C-level horror movie. Acting isn't all that great, the loser character is likable enough though. It was filmed in Detroit and has the independent East-coast film feel. The characters are human and actually talk to each other, unlike your big budget Hollywood productions. There's plenty of gore and it's first rate quality gore. No cheap CGI blood here. There's some nudity, too. Overall the story works, even though we learn nothing about the creep. The ending is surprising and good. But there's not a whole lot of sense of dread and it's not quite what you would expect from a movie called Creep Van. There should have been more pretty innocent victims killed the the van/creep. In a way the movie focuses too much on the loser and not enough on the bad guy.
Forced to team up with a sleazy conman to hunt down and stop the murderous Creep Van, misfit Campbell Jackson finds himself in for one hell of a bloody ride in this spine-chilling horror fest!
