Creep 2 Mark Duplass

Creep 2
Directed by Patrick Brice
Written by Patrick Brice & Mark Duplass
Starring Desiree Akhavan, Mark Duplass, Karan Soni
Distributor: Orchard Entertainment
Release date: October 24, 2017 Video On Demand

In 2014, Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass co-wrote and starred in a low-budget indie horror film called Creep. It lived up to its name it spades as both Duplass was a creep and the film was creepy as hell. Brice and Duplass crafted a near-perfect example of minimalist filmmaking. It featured two actors, essentially one large set, and a “script” full of improv. The plot: a videographer answers a Craigslist ad to film the last day of a dying man’s life, leading to a one-camera feel light on editing and cuts, and putting the audience right there amongst the uncomfortableness. And Mark Duplass upped the “creep” factor to 11, creating what just might become a new horror icon. Now, Brice and Duplass return with Creep 2.

NYCHFF 2016 A Knock At The Door

A Knock at the Door
Written & Directed by Katrina Rennells and Wendie Weldon
Starring Drew Jenkins, Kelley Mack, David Sullivan, Parker Mack
Not Rated | 8 Minutes
NY Premiere: November 10, 2016 (NYC Horror Film Festival)

Short films are important, and maybe no other genre is capable of getting to the point quickly like horror. The Saw franchise, which now contains 7 (!) films grossing almost $1 billion worldwide, is based on a short treatment by Leigh Whannell. Just this year, David F. Sandberg’s Lights Out grossed $141 million worldwide. That film was based on the 3-minute short Sandberg did back in 2013. Tonight, the NYC Horror Film Festival kicks off a 4-day extravaganza, and the short film A Knock at the Door is making its New York premiere there. The film is written, directed, and produced by an all-female team.

At Granny's House movie banner

At Granny’s House
DVD | VOD
Written and directed by Les Mahoney
Starring Bill Oberst, Jr, Rachel Alig, Glenda Morgan Brown, Les Mahoney
Vagabond Entertainment
Release date: May 24, 2016

At Granny’s House is what happens when a female Dexter runs an Airbnb. Eager to give up all responsibility for his elderly mother, a man hires her a full-time live-in caretaker. Rebecca (Rachel Alig) is young and beautiful. Her resume includes a variety of odd jobs including IT work, and working in a mortuary. Granny (Gloria Morgan Brown) is hesitant and skeptical. She thinks Rebecca was hired by her son for her looks. Granny’s house is an old fashioned multi-level home. Rebecca is offered a room upstairs, but decides to move into the spacious basement. Again, this draws looks of skepticism. Despite this, Rebecca wins her over and they develop a strange but real friendship. In a different world, this is the beginning of a wonderful comedy about two women from different generations forming a lifelong bond. In writer/director Les Mahoney’s world, this is the setup for a bizarre, seductive, and violent horror film.
