It's not that I have anything against Creep 2 - it made the list! - but I think Creep was so stunning that lightning couldn't strike twice. It remains a very good film, and makes use of the same kind of charismatic unease that the first film seemed to create from whole cloth. Desiree Akhavan is brilliantly cast, and she's at least Duplass's equal (and indeed, her character, Sara, may ultimately be Josef's equal), but Creep 2 almost seems more focused on its narrative than on its characters. Which isn't a bad thing - I think most people will get more out of that. It holds up admirably; it's just not quite as much of a surprise.
CAST + CREW
Director: Patrick Brice (Creep)
Cast: Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behavior, Girls)
Mark Duplass (Creep, Creep 2)
CONTENT (spoilered; highlight for warnings)
violence against women, stalking, gaslighting, obsession, sociopathy
CAREER STATS [on a scale from 1 (least) to 10 (most)]
Josef's done with this shit, and the plot is off-the-rails.
A bit more traditionally horrific than the first.
With everything on the table, I found it a bit less taut.
I prefer Creep, but this seems to play better to a group!
