Hailed as a minor masterpiece, director Patrick Brice’s Creep has just released its first trailer, and now you can catch a glimpse of what all the fuss is about.
Filled with some dark humour, and leading on to some seriously unsettling scenes, the trailer both excites and intrigues, leaving the viewer desperate to find out more (if indeed you are brave enough).
Here is the official press release from last year about the film becoming a trilogy, under the guidance of producer Jason Blum and Radius-TWC:
RADiUS-TWC 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. CREEP stars Mark Duplass (SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED) who co-wrote the film with Patrick Brice, making his directorial debut. Produced by Jason Blum (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, THE PURGE, INSIDIOUS and SINISTER franchises) and Duplass, CREEP is a unique two-man psychological thriller that upends expectations at every turn.
According to RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego: “We jumped at the opportunity to work with Mark again and Jason’s involvement was icing on the cake. CREEP is wry and unnerving with a shock ending that one has come to expect from Blumhouse. The film played through the roof at SXSW and it was abundantly clear that audiences have a huge appetite for these characters.”
Mark Duplass echoes the sentiment: “I’m a huge fan of the renegade tactics of Blumhouse and RADiUS, and I couldn’t be more psyched to partner with them on this utterly insane new franchise.”
Jason Blum goes on to say: “Mark and Patrick made a smart, fresh and terrifying film and we are excited to partner with RADiUS-TWC on sharing it with audiences while we continue to expand the CREEP world.”
Aaron (Brice) is an optimistic videographer who decides to come work for Josef (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.
