Creep – Delightfully Creepy In All the Best Ways

Combine: two parts mumblecore, one part found footage, and a dash of plausibility. Shake and serve chilled. Indeed, Creep is a delightfully chilling tale that is not too removed from what could happen. The film twists and turns, keeping the viewer guessing both actor’s (yes, there are only two not including a couple voice actors)intentions. Who is out to get who? Or is this even a issue? The line between trust and fear is treaded, then moved over again and again. The brainchild of Mark Duplass (who I admit I feel like I have seen a lot of lately – almost too much) and Patrick Brice, Creep relies on strong dialogue and some cheap camera tricks to keep this small budget thriller afloat. But it works. The acting is excellent, the writing carries the film to its unexpected ending. The film even reminded me a couple of times of Sleuth: both films rely completely on the talents of two actors solely. I heartily recommend.
