Creep 2 (2017)

Creep 2 (2017)

Country:  USA

Director:  Patrick Brice

Main Stars:  Karan Soni, Mark Duplass, Desiree Akhaven

Storyline: Aaron is back and this time a host from Encounters wants to film him.

Review (Spoils): Sara (Desiree Akhaven) a webcast host of a show called Encounters wants to end her show due to lack of viewers. She takes on last whack at her show for the finale and finds Aaron’s (Mark Duplass) add online. She meets Aaron and believes that she has found the work of her dream, as none is weirder then Aaron. After meeting and asking a millions questions back and forth Sara starts to worry about herself and if she is going to survive the night.

Once again, Aaron is back at it again, building friendships, romances and killing them as his mind snaps.  Aaron gives us the lovely return of Peach Fuzz, some axes, knives, nasty stabs, mind games, nasty blood neck slash and of course a nice hanging. Aaron is as nuts as before and Sara adds a nice new element to the series.

Only a few things bothered me with this film. We get Aaron naked but when it came to Sara, it was just a headshot (which to me I personally think the full nude on Desiree Akhaven would add more to the exploitation, which we want with this film). Secondly, even at the end of the killing is off camera if we are to get a wild ending why not exploit it to the audience? And more Peach Fuzz you had the perfect spot for it near the end.

Rating:  To be honest I love this series and it easy to be suckered into. I really enjoy the Aaron character so hats off to Mark Duplass again. The film sure had some flaws and some missed wishes but yet again this film was fast paced and creepy enough to be me entertained. Maybe we could have used more Peach Fuzz.

7/10 Beers!

Creep (2014)

Creep (2014)

Country:  USA

Director:  Patrick Brice

Main Stars:  Patrick Brice, Mark Duplass

Storyline:  A videographer is hired to film a lonely man in the woods as he is dying with cancer.

Review (Spoils): A young man named Aaron from Craig’s List is hired to video tape a young man who is dying with cancer and wants to share the video with his new baby to remember him. From the get go Josef is a bit of a loose cannon as he is late for the first greeting and loves to scare poor Aaron. As time passes and the day becomes night, we learn that Josef is a bit darker and wants Aaron to spend the night. After missing keys and some drink, Aaron drugs Josef to get away. This leads to the darker world of Josef and his childhood friend known as Peachfuzz.

This film is slow at the beginning as you try to figure out the characters and why they are together in the woods. However, as time and the story builds you start to see the darker side of Josef. We are introduced to a love crush, some childhood issues and a twist of none stop lies. We learn the hard truth of meeting someone on the internet and trust.

This film is all story and scares, do not expect blood and gore at all with this film. It builds on just tension.

Rating:  This is fun film and it even introduces us to a new horror villain known as Peachfuzz. It is about time someone made a film that dragged me into it and it did not need cheap CGI and over the top torture. Awesome job Patrick Brice!

8/10 Beers!
