Release Date: June 19, 2015
Director: Patrick Brice
A videographer (Patrick Brice) answers a craigslist ad to film a man (Mark Duplass) for a day but, soon enough, things get creepy.
Creep is an interesting take on the found footage genre, a genre which can feel a bit tired at times. The movie trucks along at a good pace with tight suspense and a few twists along the way. Mark Duplass is always enjoyable to watch and the director, Patrick Brice, who stars alongside Duplass, is also quite enjoyable.
This looks like it was shot and produced without any money and in a race to get to the finish line. As much as Creep is refreshing in its story telling, it lacks in its overall production. The production doesn’t ruin the movie. It’s just noticeable enough to distract. At a running time of 82 minutes, however, Creep is over before you can be distracted by much.
I wonder what this movie would have been like had Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass had put a little extra time into the script. It’s not a bad script. It’s amusing, Interesting and tense. But, like many other Mark Duplass projects, Creep is right on the edge of being really good. It’s so close.« « Talk Salad & Scrambled Eggs (Frasier Reconsidered W/ Matt Mira & Kevin Smith) | A Deadly Adoption » »
