Mark Duplass Returns to Weird Us Out in “Creep 2”

Mark Duplass is one of the most fascinating guys in Hollywood right now. He and his brother continue to churn out thoughtful dramedies in short amounts of time and are giving first-time TV directors a chance to cut their teeth on Room 104. And he's a pretty darn good actor in small bits like Zero Dark Thirty and leading roles like last year's Blue Jay.

But in all the many projects he's been involved in, this year marks his first sequel. 2014's Creep was an unsettling found footage film starring just Duplass and his co-writer Patrick Brice. This sequel, which IMDb notes is the second in a trilogy, finds Desiree Akhavan (Girls) interviewing Duplass this time, as he spins tales of his sordid past.

The Orchard, which put out the original – as well as Brice's sex comedy gem The Overnight – is putting out the film directly on VOD and digital download on October 24. Netflix will eventually offer it worldwide, but if you want your scares this Halloween, you'll need to check your digital platforms.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
