    I attended a screening of this movie earlier tonight. There doesn't seem to be much info out there about it. I couldn't even find a trailer, and I could only find two stills from the movie. It's a new found-footage horror movie from Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity and Insidious), and it stars Mark Duplass.

    This movie probably isn't for everyone, but it totally worked for me. I loved it. This coming from someone who generally dislikes found-footage and mumblecore. It's quite possibly the scariest comedy I've ever seen. The humor and the horror work extremely well here. Which isn't necessarily to say you're supposed to be laughing, most of the humor comes from the awkwardness of the whole situation. It keeps you on your toes though, because you never know when the movie is going to go for a joke or a scare. And there are moments here that are genuinely frightening.

    Also, it's pretty remarkable how easily Mark Duplass can transition back and forth between sympathetic weirdo and outright terrifying. It's also remarkable how his character can maintain his creepiness given how overexposed he is. There are only two characters in the entire film, so he has a lot of screentime... and it works.

    I could say more about the film or the plot, but I think the less said the better. This one will probably work best viewed cold. And it's definitely better experienced with an equally unsuspecting audience. The twists in the later half of the film aren't especially surprising or groundbreaking, but it's still better left unspoiled.

    If you can stomach the found-footage genre, I would highly recommend checking this out when it is released. I can't guarantee you'll like it, but it's definitely worth the try. I'll be curious to hear everyone's opinions once they meet Peachfuzz and experience "tubby time".

    Mark Duplass has been pretty hit or miss for me, but this film looks fantastic.

    Being released on DVD only on October 6th.

    Very disappointed there will not be a blu-ray, considering the film is on NetFlix in hi-def, but at least the SRP is low.

    It wasn't bad. Got a little slow for me, but has a very effective end.

    My brother recommended this to me. Will be part of my October viewing, if I don't queue it up before then.

    Best Buy has it for $9.99 as well. I had a $10 RZ certificate that expires in 3 days, so I picked it up today. I've been trying not to buy DVDs anymore unless they're like $3, but this movie is worth it. Good stuff!

    Also pleasantly surprised to see the DVD has a few Special Features. A lot of these DVD only indie-horror movies they've been dumping out there barebones.

    Special Features:
    - Filmmaker Commentary with Mark Duplass and Patrick Brice
    - Deleted Scene: Cold Open
    - Josef's DVD
    - Alternate Endings

    According to Mark Duplass on Twitter, Creep 2 is officially picture locked.

    Also, Patrick Brice directed this week's episode of Room 104, the Duplass Bros anthology horror show on HBO.
