Happy Halloween week Creepy Catalogers!
There’s a lot of horror on Netflix, and not all of it is good. For some reason, Netflix hasn’t invented a great way to sort through all the content yet. So, if you’re searching around Netflix with decision paralysis, I want to recommend one of my all time favorite horror movies that isn’t a big blockbuster most people have already seen.
Dim your lights and check out this trailer:
Creep is a found footage film ostensibly following a videographer, Aaron, as he documents a normal day in the life of a dying man, Josef. At first Josef appears eccentric but well-intentioned and friendly. But as the day goes on Aaron feels more and more uncomfortable with the job, eventually deciding to quit and leave. The real horror happens when Aaron and Josef stop being polite and start getting real…
One of the very best things about Creep is that Creep 2 is also streaming on Netflix, and it’s one of those rare sequels that’s every bit as good (if not better) than the original. Here’s the trailer:
Creep 2 picks up after the events of Creep with a new videographer providing the context for this to be another found footage film. This time protagonist Sara is a struggling YouTuber who agrees to record a day in the life of Josef (now identifying himself as “Aaron”) in hopes to finally get some attention for her channel. At first, she doesn’t take her subject seriously as he spends the day trying to scare her but eventually she too, realizes that she has put herself in a dangerous situation.
Creep 3 has been confirmed.
