If you we’re low on cash and came across this little ad in the paper would you give them a call?
$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.
This is exactly the premise of Mark Duplass‘ idependent horror movie, Creep which, further to its recent SXSW premiere has now been picked up for distribution by RADiUS-TWC. The company are so certain that they are onto a winner here that it has snapped up the worldwide rights to an eventual trilogy produced under the Blumhouse banner.
Written by Duplass and directed by newcomer, Patrick Brice and also starring the both of them, Aaron (Brice) answers the mysterious ad and finds himself heading off to a remote cabin where Josef (Duplass) hires him as his cinematic subject for the day. Whilst Josef appears sincere at first Aaron gradually begins to realize just what he may have let himself in for.
According to RADiUS co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego “Creep is wry and unnerving with a shock ending that one has come to expect from Blumhouse. The film played through the roof at SXSW and it was abundantly clear that audiences have a huge appetite for these characters.”
The mystery behind what is really going on up in the remote cabin and the raving reception at SXSW has us more than intrigued. Add that to the fact that Duplass has come up with enough material for a further two films then this could well be a franchise worth buying into. Let us know your thoughts.
We’ll leave you with a recent interview with the filmmaking duo at the aforementioned SXSW 2014.
