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.
There have been a lot of horror movies that were set in medicine. Few have achieved the kind of off-kilter weirdness of The Lazarus Effect wherein a group of research scientists who, while trying to find a way to enable first responders to bring a person back from the brink after a more extended period of time, stumble onto a substance which, when combined with electric pulses, actually bring a dead being back to life.
Mark & Jay Duplass have made a name for themselves as makers of micro-budgeted films – dubbed by others as mumblecore – that have been critically acclaimed and them enough money to continue making movies.
Now the brothers have set up a series at HBO: Togetherness – a show about four near-forty people who live under the same roof and are trying to keeps their dreams and relationships alive. The series stars Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet and Steve Zissis.
Togetherness premieres on Sunday, January 11, 2015 (9:30/8:30C). A revealing teaser trailer has been made available. Check it out after the jump.
The League [FX, Thursdays, 10:30/9:30C] is a show about six members of a fantasy football league – in the same sense that a hurricane is about wind. These people are dedicated to winning – and not particularly scrupulous about how they do so.
