Netflix acquires Patrick Brice’s Blumhouse stalker flick “CREEP”


One of the more anticipated titles to hit the genre festival circuit in 2014, Patrick Brice’s CREEP has had a strange behind-the-scenes ride on its journey to audiences. Initially acquired by Radius-TWC and later announced to be one of Blumhouse’s BH Tilt titles, CREEP has been laying in wait for quite some time as sequel/trilogy talk and platform discussions continued on. And now, fright fans have their first solid news about the film’s release, as Radius-TWC and Netflix have struck a deal to debut the film via the streaming platform worldwide on Tuesday, July 14th.

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for CREEP…

Aaron (Patrick Brice) is an optimistic videographer that decides to come work for Josef (Mark Duplass) after answering his ad on Craigslist. All Aaron has to do is record Josef throughout the day and remain discreet about the entire setup. Josef tells Aaron that he’ll be recording a series of videos for his unborn son, as he’s suffering from a terminal illness and will never be able to see him grow up. While Josef seems strange, the money is too good for Aaron to pass up and he agrees to the task. However as the day progresses Josef becomes increasingly strange and Aaron finds it difficult to tell whether or not some of the things Josef is saying or doing are truly jokes or actually a sign of true danger and mental instability.

So what does this mean for the future of CREEP? With Netflix getting into the feature film game, might Blumhouse be setting up the CREEP sequels at the service? Will there be no future chances to see the film on the big screen, or even see a physical media release? Stay tuned for more on the fright flick as it becomes available…
