"Creeping" makes us wish David Lynch would shoot a sequel to Wild at Heart (still starring Cage and Dern, obviously) so we could see how he uses its darkness to make uncomfortable scenes even more awkward. We could see something blowing up to the bent-string chorus, right before some hairy-faced man-creature flashes on the screen... or maybe a close-up of Dern's hair blowing in the hot Nevada wind, free but somehow caged. It'll never happen—Cage now requires more demanding roles—but it shows how adept 2:54 is at creating drama on the edge. Also, they are sisters named Hannah & Collette Thurow, and they look like badasses.
