Creep isn’t just one of the most innovative low budget horror movies out there right now – it’s probably the scariest thing on Netflix, full stop.
The brainchild of filmmaker Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass, who is probably best known for his work on shows like the equally underrated series The League, it’s a found footage effort unlike any you’ve previously seen.
Aaron (played by the off-screen Brice) is a videographer who answers an ad created by Josef (Duplass) who is dying and wants to record a video for his unborn son.
But what starts out as an unusual enough premise descends into something very unsettling and totally original. Running for just 77 minutes it doesn’t outstay its welcome either, which is something everyone can appreciate in this era of two-hour plus Hollywood efforts.
A sequel always looked likely, given the low budget stakes and noticeable success of the first movie, which featured on a whole host of film of the year lists back in 2015.
And now a first image, coupled with a full synopsis and release date has been confirmed by Bloody Disgusting and it sounds like delivering more of the same.
Due to arrive on digital platforms like Netflix on October 24 – Halloween! – the synopsis reads:
“Creep 2 stars Desiree Akhavan as Sara, a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for “video work” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man (Duplass) claiming to be a serial killer. Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him, but discovers she may have dug herself a hole from which she cannot escape.”
It already sounds awesome. Check out the trailer for the original effort above.
