I loved Creep when I saw it at SXSW. Director Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass (who directed Cyrus and Jeff, Who Lives At Home with his brother Jay) knocked it out of the park with a movie that starts as a comedy but then slowly and steadily descends into true horror.
Now comes word that Blumhouse and Radius TWC are going to shoot two sequels to the film, turning it into a trilogy. Having seen Creep, I definitely think this could work. It nicely sets itself up for a “further adventures” type of scenario without feeling forced. Per the press release, “Radius is proud to announce that it has partnered with the Duplass Brothers and Blumhouse Productions on a ‘Creep’ trilogy after the film’s highly praised and fear inducing SXSW premiere.”
In the film from Insidious and Sinister producer Jason Blum, “Looking for work, Aaron (Patrick Brice) comes across a cryptic online ad: ‘$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.’ Low on cash and full of naiveté he drives to a cabin in a remote mountain town where he meets Josef (Mark Duplass), his cinematic subject for the day. Josef is sincere and the project seems heartfelt, so Aaron begins to film. But as the day goes on, it becomes clear that Josef may not be who he says.”
Creep will be out later this year from RADIUS-TWC.
