Countdown, Day 11: Creep

Creep (2014, dir. Patrick Brice) is an interesting one. I wasn’t sure I liked it at first while I was watching it, but it grew on me, largely due to Mark Duplass, who I generally really like. By the end, I was very much into it, and this movie has stuck with me. I don’t know how to say much more without giving away a lot, but I suspect this one is less well-known than most of the others on my list, so let me just say this: watch it.

I love wolves. because they love deeply, but they don’t know how to express it, and they’re often very violent and, quite frankly, murder the things that they love, and inside of the wolf is this beautiful heart. And yeah it’s misguided, and yeah occasionally it murders things. . . . I want to encourage you to embrace your inner wolf, so take the wolf and enjoy it, and more importantly, take the knife, and don’t be afraid to murder it, because when you stick a knife in something, and you gut it and you really dig inside, I don’t know man, there’s all this beautiful stuff.
