New follow up to ‘grotesque’ Netflix horror movie that left viewers 'bothered for days' is on the way

New follow up to ‘grotesque’ Netflix horror movie that left viewers 'bothered for days' is on the way

The second film in the series has an 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes

A series of horror films that are still weirding out viewers seven years after the last instalment is getting a follow-up.

When it comes to horror – there are few subgenres scarier than found footage.

Whether it be The Blair Witch Project, REC, or Paranormal Activity, it just tends to hit different.

The way they tend to be shot simply lends itself to being scared, as something about it just tricks our brains into it feeling that bit more real.

One of the scariest examples of this is a set of films on Netflix which were said to use ‘grotesque tactics of torture’, and leave viewers terrified.

Check out the trailer for the first in the series and trust us - watch all the way through and it gets scary:

The series in question is Netflix’s Creep films.

2014’s Creep received an outstanding 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, before Creep 2 went above and beyond – getting 100 percent on the platform.

The films follow the found footage format – and, shockingly, focuses on a creep.

The creep in question is a stranger who puts out an ad for someone to film him for the day – while in Creep 2, another videographer meets that same serial killer in a cabin after being hired.

While the films are honestly equal parts funny as scary - when they get creepy it makes your skin crawl.

In a Reddit thread discussing the most ‘disturbing’ and ‘unsettling’ movie scenes that don’t rely on any gore – a number of comments all said Creep.

A poster said: “This movie bothered me for days after I watched it.”

One even commented: “That whole movie was done so well, I get weirded out just thinking about some of the scenes…”

Creep 2 is even highly more highly regarded, with one critic saying ‘Creep 2 improves on the first film in nearly every way, from tone to dialogue to plot’, whilst another said: “Creep 2 is the type of film that makes you squirm in your seat due to its uncomfortable nature”.

Now though, Creep is getting a follow up – and for those hoping, no it isn’t a third film.

The Creepiverse (patent pending) will be continuing with a TV series following up on the Netflix films and the best news? It’s already been filmed.

Mark Duplass co-wrote the original pair of films with Patrick Brice, who directed both – with Duplass also starring in both.

Duplass dropped a teaser for the series, which will be called The Creep Tapes.

The official description of the series is: “The series is based on a collection of video tapes in the secret vault of the world’s deadliest and most socially uncomfortable serial killer, who hires his victims to film him for the day under false pretences.

“Each episode exposes a new victim from one of the fabled Creep Tapes.”

If the teaser is anything to go off – it looks like this TV version will be just as oddly funny and (forgive the pun) creepy as the original Netflix cult classics.
