The movie, Creep 2, was released in 2017, and I am not sure if people watched it as much as they should have. The plot definition from IMDb is: A video artist looking for work drives to a remote house in the forest to meet a man claiming to be a serial killer. But after agreeing to spend the day with him, she soon realizes that she made a deadly mistake.
Everyone who has seen the first movie knows that Aaron, played by Mark Duplass, is a serial killer. He killed his videographer from the first movie at the end of the movie. In this movie, he starts with a murder, but has hired a videographer, Sara, to document his death. As the film continues on he talks about how he has lost his mojo, and how killing has become boring. With Sara he finds new life and finds that he still has an urge for something. Sara, for her part, shows that he doesn’t scare her, even though he actually does. Then again Sara doesn’t believe Aaron is a serial killer.
I thought this movie was fun, and I have to say I also enjoyed the first movie, Creep. I think part of this was due to Mark Duplass. I have to admit I really enjoy his acting style, as he is often weird characters, but also subtle and engaging. In this movie he takes his serial killer to a new level, and he makes the audience believe what he says. His serial killer was also written well and it was such an honest portrayal, I could honestly say that he made me think about what an actual serial killer might think. He did, in fact, make me think of the real serial killer, Edmund Kemper.
Edmund Kemper is honest about what he has done and why. He is intelligent, and Aaron is also intelligent, which made him seem realistic and wonderful.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and if you haven’t seen it you should absolutely watch it. First, watch the first movie. After you watch both of these you should watch anything else you can with Mark as an actor.
