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.
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?
