Movie Quote(s):
  • [first lines] Police Dispatcher: Attention all cars, attention all cars: general alarm. Car 22, go to 733 Spring Avenue, it's a 341, that is all.
  • Clifford Scott: Why did you come here? Hal Moffet, the 'Creeper': I need money.
  • [last lines] Capt. M. J. Donelly: Well, there goes my pigeon!
  • Mr. Haskins: [holding a grocery list] Where'd this come from? Jimmy: Somebody stuck it under the door. Mr. Haskins: [annoyed] Uhh... Jimmy: Don't you think it's kinda funny? Sticking a note under the door? Mr. Haskins: No! And don't go trying to make a mystery out of it! Somebody probably to busy to pick up the stuff. Jimmy: Could be the Creeper. Mr. Haskins: [very annoyed] Creeper, Creeper, Creeper! YOU GIVE ME THE CREEPS! Jimmy: Well he could be. That'd be a swell reason why he wouldn't wanna see anyone, or come out, 'cept at night. Mr. Haskins: Well you've just gotta deliver these groceries. And don't forget the money! A dollar and a quarter. Jimmy: OK... but I still think it could be... Mr. Haskins: I know! So he's The Creeper. Well you just creep along with that - I mean, hurry up with that stuff! And then get back and do the rest of your work!
Movie Trivia:
  • Rondo Hatton, who played the monstrous Creeper in this film and in House of Horrors (1946), was actually handsome as a young man, but later in life became disfigured by acromegaly, a form of gigantism brought about by unnaturally high levels of human growth hormone produced by a disease of the pituitary gland.
  • Rondo Hatton passed away before the film was released. Universal was so embarrassed by its shameless exploitation of Hatton's disfiguring illness (which led to his death) that it sold all rights to the finished film to "B" studio Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC).
  • In England, the rating of H (Horrific) was created specifically for this film, and no one under 16 was allowed to see it.
  • Although produced by Universal Pictures, the company was in the process of a complicated merger with William Goetz's International Pictures (merger completed July 31, 1946). To complicate matters, J. Arthur Rank's United World Pictures had a hand in the studio's management since the previous November, when this picture was still in production. With the impending change in management, studio brass dictated that B-pictures would no longer be produced. As a result, this poorly made low budget horror film became an embarrassment and it was sold to PRC after completion.
  • It's 58-minute run time makes it Universal's shortest horror feature.
