While it was supposed to hit VOD last October (via RADiUS-TWC), the Duplass Brothers’ found-footage bore Creep never released.
Now, it’s being reported that Netflix has nabbed exclusive rights to the film starring Mark Duplass as a deranged lunatic with plans to release on July 14th.
It premiered at the SXSW Film Festival where Evan Dickson raved about it (I completely disagree).
It’s to be the first in a trilogy, so who knows when we’ll ever see the other two that have allegedly already been filmed.
“Aaron (Patrick Brice) is an optimistic videographer that decides to come work for Josef (Mark Duplass) after answering his ad on Craigslist. All Aaron has to do is record Josef throughout the day and remain discreet about the entire setup. Josef tells Aaron that he’ll be recording a series of videos for his unborn son, as he’s suffering from a terminal illness and will never be able to see him grow up. While Josef seems strange, the money is too good for Aaron to pass up and he agrees to the task. However as the day progresses Josef becomes increasingly strange and Aaron finds it difficult to tell whether or not some of the things Josef is saying or doing are truly jokes or actually a sign of true danger and mental instability.”
