Blumhouse Horror/Comedy CREEP Gets Release Dates/Poster

unnamed (61)During last year’s awesome Fantasia Film Festival, one of the standout films of the entire time was the Mark Duplass/Patrick Brice-led & Patrick Brice directed horror comedy, CREEP (review). There was just something magical about the film, and to know that Jason Blum and his horror powerhouse company Blumhouse swooped in and helped with the film was a breathe of fresh air. It was just the absolute perfect combination of humor and horror and teetered between the two quite effortlessly.

Blumhouse has now announced that the film will finally see the light day, when it arrives on iTunes on JUNE 23rd, with a Netflix debut hitting a couple of weeks later, beginning July 14th, via Blumhouse. A very unique approach to releasing a film, I’m genuinely curious how this type of release plan will affect the film. Regardless, it’s one to choose and well worth however you DO watch the film.

Looking for work, Aaron (Patrick Brice) comes across a cryptic online ad: “$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.”

Low on cash and full of naiveté, he decides to go for it. He drives to a cabin in a remote mountain town where he meets Josef (Mark Duplass), his cinematic subject for the day. Josef is sincere and the project seems heartfelt, so Aaron begins to film. But as the day goes on, it becomes clear that Josef is not who he says, and his intentions are not at all pure.

The directorial debut of Patrick Brice and produced by Jason Blum (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, INSIDIOUS) and Mark Duplass (SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED), CREEP’s intense interplay between its two protagonists upends expectations at every turn.

Blumhouse sends CREEP your way via iTunes on June 23rd and on Netflix on July 14th.
