Best known for starring in The League and directing light-hearted indie films such as Cyrus and Jeff Who Lives at Home, Mark Duplass takes a turn towards the dark side in the first trailer for Creep. RADiUS-TWC picked up the thriller last year after it debuted at the South By Southwest Film Festival, with plans already under way for a trilogy. Patrick Brice makes his feature directorial debut with Creep and also stars as Aaron, a naive filmmaker who takes a job that could cost him his life.
Looking for work, Aaron (Creep) comes across a cryptic online ad: "$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated." Low on cash and full of naiveté, he decides to go for it. He drives to a cabin in a remote mountain town where he meets Josef (Mark Duplass), his cinematic subject for the day. Josef is sincere and the project seems heartfelt, so Aaron begins to film. But as the day goes on, it becomes clear that Josef is not who he says, and his intentions are not at all pure.Read More
