Mark Duplass delivers an absolutely terrifying performance in Patrick Brice’s Creep.

Aaron (Patrick Brice) is a videographer looking for work and the answer immediately appears, because that’s how it works in horror films. Josef (Mark Duplass) is offering $1,000 for one day of filming. Aaron takes the job, but admits that the situation seems too good to be true. It is. Obviously.

The film, a found footage piece, lives up to it’s name with a ruthless atmosphere of unquestionable creepiness. Mark Duplass delivers the kind of performance you just can’t turn away from and his character, Josef, quickly becomes the star. While some parts are laugh- out- loud funny there’s always that creepy undertone that won’t go away, and that’s why this film succeeds in the way it does. It’s awkward and terrifying and sets itself apart from the sea of awful found footage films out there.

Creep shifts so seamlessly and quickly from funny to scary that it’s hard to know how to react, except for a deep disturbance you’re bound to feel. If you’re looking for a good found footage with lots of atmosphere then Creep is the one for you.

Extremely watchable, definitely one to catch.

4/5
