It's pretty often that an original movie, in this case Creep, does well enough to push a sequel. It's also pretty often that the sequel just can't live up to the original and kills any good feelings a viewer has towards it. Some movies just need to be left alone. There's no need to hype it up and start some sort of franchise. This movie, Creep 2, is definitely that. Yes, I can see the similarities from the sequel to the original, but it just didn't have any of the redeeming qualities that the first one had. I actually enjoyed the first one. This second one however, was extremely boring and just didn't have as much of the "creep" factor as the first one did.
In this sequel, Mark Duplass is back. He has lost his passion towards killing and wants someone to film him telling his life story as a serial killer. That's where Desiree Akhavan comes in. She follows him around with a camera as he fails to creep her our with his creepiness. As the movie goes on, he gets more and more upset that he can't scare her.
I will say that I enjoyed the ending. That was probably the only thing I enjoyed.
In looking at IMDB, I see that a Creep 3 is in the works. How about you just stop Patrick Brice? I guess if you don't want to, I would go with a prequel or something. I'm not a fan of Akhavan's character. Though her purple hair was magnificent.
I'm going with a "hated it" on this one. It was boring and not as thrilling as the first one. With the way it started off, I had high hopes for this, but it quickly tanked in my opinion. (1/5).
