The Creep Behind the Camera
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: John Schuermann
Label: MovieScore Media
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 11 September 2015

MovieScore Media releases John Schuermann's score for this docudrama. The Creep Behind the Camera is a shocking exposé written and directed by Pete Schuermann about notorious cult filmmaker Art J. Nelson. Nelson wrote, produced, edited and starred in The Creeping Terror, a low-budget 1964 horror about a monster consuming teenagers. The worst horror of all times was plagued by dozens of production problems, most notoriously Art’s dishonest methods of obtaining financing that lead to the director’s disappearance from filmmaking. Schuermann’s film not only unearths what happened to the gonzo filmmaker, but presents his psychological issues that earned him the nickname "Creep"...

John Schuermann takes the scores of numerous low budget '60s horror movies, sticks them in a blender and delivers an original soundtrack that is unique, but conjures up so many cliched images.

His score for The Creep Behind the Camera is tongue-in-cheek in places, creepy in others, with the occasional twee track ('White Funeral March' performed by Jungle Otter). The album also contains the humours rockabilly song 'Whatever Happened to What's His Name?' performed by New Ben Franklins.

The score contains 16 tracks (42 min, 43 sec) and will find a welcome home in the collections of fans of classic horror scores.
