Indie Gems: Creep
Keep the camera rolling
Aaron(Patrick Brice) is a videographer who responds to an ad on Craig's List to film a man named Josef (Mark Duplass) for a day. Josef tells Aaron that he's dying of cancer, he has a son on the way, and wants to film something for his child to watch when he's older. Soon, Aaron realizes that there's something extremely off about this situation.
The film is shot entirely on Aaron's hand held camera, which can be annoying because of the shakiness, but there really wasn't any other way they could've told this story. They at least set the camera down during for most of the film, so it can focus.
We don't see a whole lot of Brice since he's operating the camera, so Duplass is the main standout, and he's wonderfully creepy. He still has that goofy charm Duplass usually does in his films but when he needs to get serious, he does it well.
The film is short, running at just 75 minutes, but this makes for a good quick watch.
