The Creep trailer has dropped, and this is one I’ve been wanting to see for quite some time. (Pretty much since one reviewer compared it to What About Bob? meets Fatal Attraction.)
The film stars Mark Duplass as a seemingly quirky man who wants to create a video diary for his unborn son since he’s supposedly dying of terminal brain cancer.
From the very beginning, Duplass’ character, Josef, feels “off.” He seems to relish scaring the bejeezus out of the cameraman he’s hired for the one-on-one “adventure.”
The cameraman is Aaron (Patrick Brice), and by the end of the day, he’s had enough. He decides to call it a night, but Josef coaxes him into coming up for one drink.
From there, things get downright spooky, though it appears as though the film has a healthy sense of humor throughout.
We’re living in something of a golden age of horror right now. Fans can rent or download movies at home the same time as they’re available in theaters. While the Creep trailer below doesn’t indicate a definite day when you can see this on a big screen, I’ll probably be waiting until July 14 when it drops on Netflix.
If you like what you see, then consider picking it up through iTunes on June 23. (Both dates supplied by Upcoming Horror Movies.)
Now for your enjoyment, here’s the Creep trailer.
Despite the fact that Duplass has done some comedy recently (The Mindy Project), he looks well-suited for the horror stuff.
He shared his thoughts on the film.
“We were interested in the psychological profile of this very, very strange person. We were very interested in how you meet people and don’t quite understand what’s up, but you start to get signs. For us that was intense eye contact, lack of personal space, oversharing, maybe a little bit too much love here and there. But, for me, there’s something wrong with both of these guys. Deeply. This concept of, ‘who is the creep in this scenario?'”
As for Brice, he also directs and you can catch him in this, as well as the 2012 feature Leave Me Like You Found Me.
