No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Patrick Brice
Starring: Mark Duplass (Josef), Patrick Brice (Aaron)
Country: United States
Language: English (Eng Subs)
Runtime: 01:17:51

Plot – Spoilers:
A cameraman, Aaron drives to a cabin in response to an ad calling for a day of filming. He’s a bit smug, expecting to meet a mature lady looking for some filmed fun. But instead it’s Josef, a man dying of cancer. Josef’s wife is pregnant and he wishes to record a vlog for the kid, in case he doesn’t make it.

What begins in a weird bathtub soon tailspins with Josef’s behaviour increasingly bizarre and childish. Aaron feels he’s dealing with a very lonely man and indulges him. Besides, he also needs the money and isn’t entirely honest himself…

Creep falls into the jaded found-footage genre but is surprisingly entertaining despite the lack of obvious violence or perverse indulgence.

Genres:
Snuff, Serial Killers

Random – Massive Spoilers:
In his final conversation, Josef refers to the caller as buddy. He’d earlier told Aaron his child was gonna be named Buddy. So a lonely man with unfulfilled paternal instincts?

If you enjoyed this, you might want to give the darker Tin Can Man a shot.

Nice choice admins! (Interesting you’d recommend Tin Can Man if u liked this film, I can see why tho since both films have that weird cringe wtf-ness. Meant to post a review for that one, loved it!!) One I’ve seen a couple times that I’ve enjoyed, so I’ll keep it brief;) Really liked this film overall, esp considering it was found footage. I love FF style films, but I’ll readily admit most are average at best. Loved the ending, as well as the overall cringe factor of the film. The sequel was decent as well, albeit not as good as… Read more »

Saw this back when it first came out and laughed at it. I like Mark Duplass but it just seemed really cheesy and forgettable. Since then I’ve seen it appear on many lists for decent horror, then saw it appear here and figured I would try again. Eh, still not feeling it. I did enjoy it better The second time but it’s just so unbelievable. No one would act like Aaron and do, or not do, the dumb shit he does and doesn’t do. I’m glad I watched it again but will not make it a third time. Nor do… Read more »

This movie definitely helps if you have the ‘hiccups’. Overall, not a bad Snuff film. Thanks EUM!

Great movie! I’m not a big fan of the “found footage” genre… but I respect what it is: super-low-budget, maximum profit. Capitalism at it’s finest. Sans all the special effects and tricky camera work, the success/failure of these films rests on the shoulders of the writers/actors who will definitely make it or break it. This one… they most certainly made it. Everything about this movie was a winner… except for the title. It should have been “Peachfuzz” IMVHO….
