  • One step closer to screaming in a theater near you.

It's been two years since the Indy's cover story on local filmmaker Pete Schuermann and his movie-to-be, Creep!

And a whole lot of fundraising and fuss since then.

But finally — finally! — Schuermann and crew are funded (to the tune of $70,000 from Kickstarter) and ready to begin filming the comedic, docudrama tribute to epic stinkbomb The Creeping Terror.

Cameras will roll starting Monday, June 25 and the production schedule calls for 35 days currently.

A press release from earlier today says the film will be shot 95 percent in Colorado Springs with a production team almost entirely assembled from in-state as well.

We'll keep you posted throughout the filming, editing and post-production process. Here's wishing it won't take two more years to land a distributor and all that.

May the digestive fury and slow-moving power of the carpet monster be with the crew as they venture into action.

(That's like saying "break a leg," but a little less cliché and more fear-based.)
