This film just didn’t gel with me, I dunno I like a lot of movies and generally look for the good points, with Creep that happens to be the concept, it’s a good concept, nothing original but we love a great Craigslist horror right!? We love them because they are scary and we all love auctions and the creepy shit that goes on with dodgy listings on a site that you can basically organise an orgy on. Out of all of the “stories” I’ve heard on youtube, reddit etc I can’t say this scenario is one of the better ones. Continue reading POST DISCUSSION : Creep (2014)

While isn’t one of the best found footage movies to date. It is definitely entertaining, coming from a director who has had numerous cinema failures in the last few years; M Night has managed to pull back some credibility with this different stance on the found footage genre.
The movie doesn’t commit too many found footage movies sins, please see my list of what to and what not to expect in any found footage movies here. It does manage to create right atmosphere and has many plausible seems wear cameras could be used.
Well he has managed to make a good movie he hasn’t made a brilliant movie but I have to give me credit for not only working outside of his normal comfort zone by making a found footage movie and working with two very young actors but at the same time it has to be noted that these are the cheapest movies to make at the moment, so was this a money saving exercise in order.
Generally you find with M Night movies there is a very clear beginning middle and end which doesn’t leave much room for prequel sequel everything is quiet study as standalone movie. Continue reading Post Discussion – The Visit (2014)
