Creep (2014) Review

We watched Creep on Netflix for the tenth time, and I have to say, this movie is just pure genius. Mark Duplass turns into the most playfully nefarious creep you’ve ever seen, and it’s one of the best performances I’ve ever seen anyone achieve.

The money being offered seems incredible, but not over-the-top unbelievable. Aaron arrives and is immediately put-off by the insane, jump-scare greeting that Joseph gives him. Joseph shares that he has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and only has a few months to live. He wants Aaron to film this day so that his unborn son, Buddy, will have something to know his father by. Joseph starts the day of filming off with Aaron filming him in the tub while pretending to bathe his son - the day gets infinitely more weird from there. As we follow Aaron and Joseph, we keep learning that Joseph is not above lying to Aaron, and is very into making him feel uneasy and upset, without ever crossing the line of outright mania. What becomes very apparent is Joseph is a total creep, and it’s more unsettling and hilarious than anything I’ve seen since. Review Creep is low-key one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. It’s directed by Patrick Brice who also plays Aaron, and written by both Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass. It’s clear that Creep is based on a series of conversations around a creepy guy that Mark and Patrick dreamed up and the way Mark brings him to life is unforgettable.  The movie lacks a formal script, instead they wrote a barebones outline and improvised most of the scenes and dialog.  Watch CreepWatch on Amazon Buy or Rent Now! The result is something akin to meeting a far-too-kind stranger on the street. They welcome you and are so excited to meet you, but you can’t help but wonder, what are they after? Why are they so excited about this exchange? What are they hiding? Mark Duplass keeps the character of Joseph playful and fun, with an undercurrent of danger and seriousness just below the surface. Aaron and his actions are very easy to empathize with, which makes it very disturbing when thing go wrong. Ultimately Creep is a provocative and hilarious character study that I love to death.  Score 10/10 Get 20% Off + Free Shipping, with the code HMT at Get 13% Off your order at when you use code HMT at checkout.
