Another Tales project now in development is Creatures, a sophisticated psychological thriller that tells the disturbing tale of two former best friends who, at 12 years old, tried to cut out their classmate's heart as a sacrifice to an internet bogeyman they invented called Mr. Gorgi. Fifteen years later, the two young women have been released from a psychiatric institute into their small town in Alaska, but it's not long before they start to feel the alluring and terrifying presence of Mr. Gorgi once again. Creatures is a story of deep friendship and dark obsession, where a vivid imagination meets the power of suggestion and the seduction of belief. Creatures is being written by BAFTA Award winner Dominic Mitchell (In the Flesh) and produced by Sue Naegle's Naegle Ink. Tom Shankland (House of Cards, The Missing) is attached to direct and serve as executive producer.

The Creatures were a band formed in 1981 by Siouxsie and the Banshees members Siouxsie Sioux and Budgie. With the dissolution of Siouxsie and the Banshees in 1996, the Creatures graduated from an occasional project to a full-time concern. The drum and voice duo released four studio albums: Feast in 1983, Boomerang in 1989, Anima Animus in 1999 and Hái! in 2003. With Feast, the band dabbled in exotica. On Boomerang, they added a Spanish-tinged vibe to their music, with elements of flamenco, blues and jazz. In the late 1990s, they developed a more urban sound; The Times then described their music as “adventurous art rock built around Siouxsie's extraordinary voice and drummer Budgie's battery of percussion”. In their last work, they returned to their roots while heading east, with an ode to Japanese minimalism. They disbanded in 2005. Their music was hailed by Jeff Buckley and PJ Harvey.

The Creatures came back six years later. Siouxsie and Budgie went to a stone barn in Jerez, Andalucia, Spain to record Boomerang. Brass arrangements were used on some tracks and Anton Corbijn took colour pictures for the sleeve. The record was critically acclaimed and widely regarded as Siouxsie and Budgie's crowning achievement as the Creatures. NME wrote: “It's a rich and unsettling landscape of exotica”. One of the bluesier songs on Boomerang, “Killing Time”, was later covered live by Jeff Buckley. In the US, “Standing There” was popular on alternative radio stations, reaching No. 4 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, staying in the top 10 for 10 weeks.
