The woman's sudden scream in the middle of the night gave me the creeps.

Hi,

Is it correct to understand "the creeps" in the above as 'the goose bumps?" thanks.

Horripilation meants "goose bumps" - your skin contracts to raise the hairs on it, and the muscles at the bottom of the hairs form little bumps.

No. Horripilation may have other causes, and 'the creeps' may occur without horripilation.

Thanks, Mister.

To make sure, does "goose bumps" always imply horripilation?
