British thriller CREEP has been given a $2 million (GBP1.26 million) lottery grant from the UK FILM COUNCIL's Premiere Fund.
The forthcoming film - directed by first-timer CHRIS SMITH - is about a woman trapped on a dark train with a stalker, and it is hoped it will emulate the success of hit 2002 UK movie 28 DAYS LATER.
