CREEP 2 (2017)

When we last left Duplass' character, he had ‘taken care’ of the videographer whom he hired to record him in his seemingly final days which all turned out to be a lie. Throughout the first film, there is tension amongst a is-he-or-isn’t-he vibe whether or not he is crazy. For CREEP 2, he is back and now that some of the original tension is gone, how to make this different? He puts out another ad for a videographer to take a job, but this time there is a twist: He admits up front to the new person, Sara, that if she records him over the next 24 hours he will let her live. Since her usual job is making documentaries about eccentric and weird folks from Craigslist, she accepts this assignment. Since the new character knows from the beginning there might be stakes involved, the tension shifts now to a will-he-or-won’t-he, instead of an ‘is he actually crazy’ vibe we get from the original. Similar to the first, this is a two-person show. If you like your found footage horrors with more elaborate settings, screams, gore, and ghosts, you may not buy into this one. However, if you like a good psychological tense horror where you like to be strung along, then get creeped out for a second night with Duplass.
