Director: Patrick Brice | USA | 2014 | 88 mins
Looking for work, videographer Aaron (played by director 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, events take a disturbing turn and it becomes clear that Josef may not be who he claims to be.
Mesmerizing and at times unbearably tense, Creep’s strength lies in the chilling interplay between its two protagonists and the feeling of dread that permeates much of the film’s running time. Soon to be continued with two further films to complete the trilogy, this sinister shocker will linger in the memory for a long time…
