While looking for work, a filmmaker sees a curious ad – ‘$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.’ – and decides to give it a shot. His subject turns out to be something other than what he’s represented himself to be. Creepiness ensues.
Creep is a co-production of The Duplass Brothers (Cyrus, Jeff Who Lives at Home) and Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Insidous) and stars writer/director Patrick Brice (The Overnight) and Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed, Togetherness).
In what has to be a first, Creep will be released on both iTunes (June 23rd) and Netflix (July 14th). For more, follow the jump.

I just don’t know about this movie. There’s nothing about it that’s screaming “love” to me, I’m not digging the tone of the trailers, the dark color pallet or the uniforms, and are people not allowed to smile in this universe? I mean really. Must be grim all the time. I’m trying to remain optimistic and hope for the best. I’m one of the only people on the planet who apparently liked the first two films. Check out these brand new character posters for the movie!
