Actor Mark Duplass (The League) and Patrick Brice, who directed ‘Wolf Creek’, wrote and starred in the 2014 horror thriller ‘Creep’. ‘Creep’ was also directed by Brice.

In ‘Creep’ Aaron (Brice) is hired by Josef (Duplass) to make a video diary after answering a Craig’s List Ad. Josef has brain cancer and wants to make the video for his unborn son. We find out later in the movie that there is no son and no cancer. Josef is just a weird, mentally unstable man. As Aaron tries to leave Josef tries to delay him every way he can think of. Finally Aaron is able to flee, but soon begins to receive strange gifts and DVDs from Josef, but things just continue to get creepier. At the end of the movie we learn the truth about Josef and that Aaron is not his only victim.

There was a lot of hype about ‘Creep’ prior to it’s release, but honestly I was not impressed. The movie is full of moments where Aaron makes dumb decisions that no one would make in real life, like agreeing to meet with his stalker after everything that happened. There was a lot of over acting in the movie, which made things even less believable.  There was also a lack of suspense and action, there was mostly just weirdness. The last two minuets were the best part of the entire movie. I know a lot of people gave ‘Creep’ a great review, I just don’t understand why. I feel ‘Creep’ is mediocre at best.

The fact that there are already two sequels to ‘Creep’ in the works surprises me, but the low filming budget and the cast’s connections may have a lot to do with it.

 

‘Creep’ is now available DVD and on Netflix streaming if you want to see it for yourself.
