Just my two cents: creepiness, to me, is building the film OUTSIDE the frame. It's the "what made that noise" "what was that in the corner" - think of all the films that have creeped you out, the camera is deployed precisely to hold the audience from getting all the information, from feeling comfortable. Take something like Blair Witch, highly original at the time but perhaps a little worn now. The shaky, handheld succeeds precisely in limiting the audience's perception.

I don't know what your story is so I don't know how better to advise on creepiness but this principle should hold true in most cases.

That's a great point! I remember with Blair Which it always annoyed me they never showed the monster. I guess I know why know.
