CREEP 2 is the second installment of the freaky found footage franchise created and written by Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass. The film landed on VOD platforms last month, but streamers can rejoice! Creep 2 will land on Netflix Saturday, December 23rd. Like the original Creep, Creep 2 is also directed by Brice and stars Duplass.
Creep 2 begins much the same as the first film; with wolf-masked serial-killer “Aaron” (Mark Duplass) Craigslisting a videographer to film him for the weekend at his remote cabin. Only this time, Aaron is having a midlife crisis, and may have met his match with the gutsy, creative Sara (Desiree Akhavan) who thinks she’s found the perfect subject for her struggling video series. The result is a weekend of Aaron teetering between breakdowns and power games, and Sara calling his bluff at every turn.
Mark Duplass’s performance as Aaron this time around is just as humorously unsettling, yet more complex and sprinkled with some surprisingly emotional moments. Desiree Akhavan shines as Sara, who is eager to make a connection with her quirky subject, and is audacious and ambitious enough that we can fully believe her decision not to run as soon as Aaron hits her with his dangerous true nature. The chemistry between the two is both delightful and tense, and their personalities are strong and unpredictable enough to keep us guessing what will happen until the final disturbing scene. Creep 2 overall is well-paced and neat, uncomfortably funny and supremely creepy.
Can’t wait for Netflix?
Can’t get enough Creep?
Lucky for you, the first Creep is already available on Netflix. Also, Creep 3 looms in our future as part of the planned trilogy confirmed by director Patrick Brice! There’s no official release date as of yet.
