"Creep 2" will be released in Netflix this December

Perhaps it won’t be one of the most remembered movies of the past Sitges Film Festival, but everybody who had the chance to go watch Creep 2 (2017) probably got more than satisfied. Still, the film achieved the award of Best Film in the Panorama Fantàstic of the festival in its 2017 edition. But sadly a movie of this kind rarely can enjoy a decent commercial distribution or theatrical release. At least, we can be happy because the Video on Demand platform Netflix has achieved the streaming exploitation rights for the film and it’s been announced that it will be released as part of their catalog the next 23rd of December.

In Creep 2 (2017), Sara is a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for “video work” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man claiming to be a serial killer. Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him. However, as the day goes on she discovers she may have dug herself into a hole she can’t escape.

The plot is very similar to its predecessor, Creep (2014). In fact, both of the movies are starred by Mark Duplass, the co-writer of both Creep films, who has a different role in each one of the movies. With him, also star Desiree Akhavan, Karan Soni, Kyle Field, Caveh Zahedi, Jeff Man and director Patrick Brice in a small role.

Both Creep (2014) and Creep 2 (2017) are the perfect examples of how to make a good horror thriller with a ridiculously small budget. It’s a joy that works like this can find a platform for exhibition nowadays, when everybody seems to be more interested in superheroes or remakes and reboots of the same old stories as always. So I’ve marked the day Netflix will have this movie available on my calendar. Now, you can check out the trailer and decide if you will also do so.
