  • Within its commercial framework, they're taking real chances - and 'Creep' is, in many ways, a puzzling character study in a found-footage horror movie's clothing.

  • Duplass's fantastically unhinged performance establishes what Brice fails to convey ...

  • The film is remarkable, considering its minimal means and surprising lack of bloodshed, given the genre. Does it stay with you? A little.

  • Though Creep doesn't exactly reinvent the found-footage form, Brice knows the genre well enough to do a little tweaking.

    June 22, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Creep isn't particularly gory -- certainly not for a horror film. Rather, Josef's eccentricities surface in surprising ways that, while not bloody, are certainly horrifying and strangely funny.

  • A slow-burning found-footage suspenser with some mildly clever twists and a knockout payoff.

Audience Reviews for Creep

    I get that there are some interesting ideas about masculinity and how men assert dominance over one another but this is a little too much of a stretch, especially at the end.

    Essentially chilling and brilliantly performed by the two men, Creep is a fascinating character study of a man who at first appears gentle and kind, if a slight oddball who quickly descends into a nightmarish stalker antagonist. Creep is a good example of how the early signs of strangeness can often be the most terrifying. Mark Duplass is ridiculously committed to his performance as Josef and the camera work is good, if not sometimes a bit too cheesy for me. The tone of the film seems to meander sometimes and the long, edge-of-your-seat peers around corners seem like they'd be better left to Paranormal Activity and other supernatural found-footage sagas. Creep 2 should rely more on behaviour and let the intensity of the film be found mostly in the script and subtleties that made this film so brilliant. The fact that the film only has two men as its cast seems to heighten the claustrophobia. Be prepared for an experience that will stay with you for a while!

    I'm pretty far from on board with Found Footage Horror, and Creep hits a lot of the reasons why. It also seems like there was no reason it had to be Found Footage in the first place. But that all said, Mark Duplass' performance is enough to elevate the piece somewhat, and kudos to director Patrick Brice for trying something new with the format.

    A great psychological and very short thriller as it captures both a man slowly going insane and how that has an impact on a normal person living with him. You could feel tension building up throughout the film. It was also pretty cool that they managed to pull it of with only 2 actors and a phone call. Unfortunately most of the time when the tension started building up, it would be ruined by a stupid false jump scare. In the film the photographer named Aaron constantly getting scared by his friend Josef and a wolf mask annoyed me. I also wish the film would've been slightly longer being only an hour an 17 minutes long. ( It doesn't affect how much I like the film but I have never seen Josef spelled with an F.)
