Peter Creedy is one of the two main antagonists (alongside Adam Sutler) of V for Vendetta, a 2006 film based on comics of the same name.
This version of the character is a cold psychopath, with V describing him as "a man seemingly without a conscience, for whom the ends always justify the means". Creedy craves for power and will do absolutely anything to obtain it. Unlike all others Norsefire's members, Creedy does not even care about his own country and his inhabitants, being the mastermind behind the bio-engineered plague, which is later blamed on terrorists and used to terrorize the public into giving Norsefire total control. Creedy is also a total hypocrite, despising Sutler's cowardice faced with death but losing himself his cold demeanor by becoming completely scared before his death at V's hands. Creedy has a softer side with flowers, taking care of them deeply. With that said, it does not redeem him in the slightest.
Like in the comics, Creedy in the film is the head of the Fingermen. Although Adam Sutler is more prominent as the Chancellor, Creedy is the actual power of the Norsefire regime. In a meeting with Inspector Eric Finch, a disguised V suggests that it was Creedy's idea to use the virus not on "an enemy of the country, but rather the country itself."
The Finger's trademark is the black bags they put over the captives' heads. One such instance is when the Chancellor orders variety show host Gordon Deitrich arrested for mocking Sutler on his show; Creedy personally shows up at Deitrich's home and beats him with a nightstick, splitting open his face. Dietrich is then taken away and executed for possessing forbidden material (the Finger's finding a copy of the banned Quran hidden in his house sealed his fate).
During the second half of the movie, Creedy has fallen out of favor with Sutler because of his failure to stop V's rebellion and the public unrest resulting from them. One night while tending his flowers in his home in suburban London, Creedy is confronted by V, who offers him a deal; V offers to turn himself over in exchange for Sutler. After facing further criticism from Sutler, Creedy accepts the offer.
V and Creedy meet in an abandoned tube station and after V has been given his chance to personally bid farewell to him, Creedy personally shoots his hated boss in front of V. Creedy tells V to take off his mask, but V refuses. At Creedy's order, the Fingermen open fire but fail to take him down. A mortally wounded V cuts down all of Creedy's Fingermen as a horrified Creedy looks on helplessly. Creedy then fires all six of his rounds at V to no avail, before fulfilling his promise that Creedy would die with his hands around his neck, the masked vigilante corners Creedy and snaps his neck, killing him.
