Just when everyone thought the found footage horror movie had reached its end, Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass delivered the goods with the low-fi chiller “Creep.” The 2014 horror film became a favorite thanks to Netflix, and now the duo are returning with “Appropriate Behavior” breakout Desiree Akhavan for the sequel, appropriately titled “Creep 2.” You can check out the first look of Duplass above.
The official synopsis reads: “Sara (Akhavan) is a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for ‘video work’ she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man claiming to be a serial killer (Duplass). Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him. However, as the day goes on she discovers she may have dug herself into a hole she can’t escape.”
“We are overjoyed to bring the next chapter of ‘Creep’ into the world!,” said Brice in an official statement. “The fact that audiences have embraced the first film in such an unexpected way has been so heartening. We hope ‘Creep 2’ with bring a new level of fear, discomfort and joy to loyal fans and newcomers alike.”
“Creep 2” will be released on all digital platforms October 24.
