CREEP: Found-Footage Thriller Featuring Mark Duplass and Patrick Brice Gets A Trailer

CREEP: Found-Footage Thriller Featuring Mark Duplass and Patrick Brice Gets A Trailer

A trailer for the highly anticipated comedy horror film ‘CREEP,’ starring Mark Duplass and Patrick Brice, has been unleashed. The film will hit iTunes on June 23rd and Netflix on July 14th.

Synopsis: 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.


 

About the Director:
Patrick Brice
 is a 2011 graduate from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) School of Film & Video in 2011.

Eli Roth’s ‘The Green Inferno’ To Finally Hits Theaters On September 25th

thegreeninferno-2014

BH Tilt, Blumhouse Productions’ label dedicated to creating tailored distribution strategies for genre films, will release Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno on September 25, 2015 in collaboration with Universal Pictures and High Top Releasing, a label dedicated to servicing high quality movies using Focus Features’ distribution capabilities. The companies will debut The Green Inferno on approximately 1,000 screens and promote the film by employing a targeted digital campaign focused on creating awareness and engagement among genre fans.

The Green Inferno is a wild, fun ride that took us deeper into the Amazon than anyone has ever taken a film crew,” said Roth. “BH Tilt is a forward thinking label that is helping to redefine how genre movies can be released. I want to express my deep gratitude to the fans for their incredible support of this movie and to everyone at Blumhouse and Universal for making sure fans can experience the film in theaters across the country.”

Jason Blum said: “When we launched BH Tilt we said our goal was to be part of the continuing evolution of distribution, whether it is through changing marketing strategies, changing revenue sources or changing windows. We are excited to capitalize on new developments in distribution and marketing to bring Eli’s movie to horror lovers across the country.”

In The Green Inferno, a group of student activists travels to the Amazon to save the rain forest and soon discover that they are not alone, and that no good deed goes unpunished.

Blumhouse, which has a 10-year first-look production agreement with Universal Pictures, specializes in micro-budget genre movies. The company, whose franchises have grossed more than $1.4 billion worldwide, gives directors creative freedom to make the movies they want. Given their low-budgets, the films can be distributed and marketed both traditionally and in new ways.
