I have a question to ask you about expressions...
How would you draw a 'creepy' face?

I might be able to help with this.
"Scary" is basically anything that humans perceive as potentially dangerous on a base instinct level.
But in this case "Creepy" is more specifically something that at first glance could deceive us in being harmless, but is in fact dangerous too us.
Remember this is a generalisation of subconscious reactions to images, meaning that you shouldn't think of these as rational thoughts.

Anyway, you probably want to make a character look creepy. The easiest way of doing that is make the character look nearly completely normal, and change a few small things to make it look "off".
A crooked smile goes a long way. Humans are also naturally "scared" of people or things showing signs of sickness.
Things relating to disease and suffering can quickly be scary and very unnerving when drawn.

Sorry if this is way to lengthy of a response.. I hope I could've helped you a bit though.
