Hollywood Legend Christopher Lambert in Finnish Horror-Comedy THE CREEPS

Action-horror-comedy feature film THE CREEPS, produced by Black Lion Pictures and
Frozen Flame Pictures starts filming in March, at Kajawood, Vuokatti and locations in Jyväskylä.

The stars of this international movie include the likes of
Hollywood- legend Christopher Lambert (Highlander, Greystoke, Mortal Kombat,
Hail, Caesar!, Blacklist, and NCIS Los Angeles), Chris Cavalier (Hidden Figures,
Teenage Bounty Hunters, and The Best of Enemies). “Finnish blood is brought into
the mix by Iiro Panula (Teit meistä kauniin, Sorjonen, Veljeni vartija and
Valmentaja), among others”. The movie is scripted and directed by Marko
Mäkilaakso (Sorjonen, War of the Dead, It Cape from the Desert) and produced by Miika J. Norvanto and Timo Puustinen (Rendel -movies).

In the film two young Americans prepare for the celebration of Monsterfest,
an event in the skiing center of Vuokatti, but the party is soon interrupted when the Creeps; small but
lethal, take over the event. Inspired by 80-90’s classics like
Gremlins, Critters, Highlander, and American Pie. The Creeps brings in Nordic style
to the subgenre. The creatures are designed by Disney- veteran Barry Atkinson (The
Lion King, Heavy Metal, Pocahontas, An American Tail, The Land before time).
Hollywood- star Christopher Lambert carries out one of the most important roles in
the movie which is currently being prepared at Kajawood. The complete
cast will be forthcoming.

The film will aim for a premiere December 2021 in Finland. It is also set for
international distribution.

“We are extremely happy and excited that we get to produce The Creeps with
Mäkilaakso. We have been planning a film together for a long time, and now we can
finally get to work on it. Of course, having Christopher Lambert with us is a dream come true in so
many ways. This is an awesome start for Kajawood and it’s international
productions still to come”, producer Miika J. Norvanto states.

“We finally get to carry out this genre I love, and which I miss from my childhood.
1980-90’s nostalgia, action, comedy, and innocence. Pure unexcused
entertainment”, producer Timo Puustinen tells.

“The Creeps will be a very entertaining, popcorn-flick for a large audience, and it is
insanely great that Christopher, Chris, and other actors are in this fun adventure”,
director-screenwriter Marko Mäkilaakso tells.
