It was announced Wednesday that the horror film Creep 2 will be released by The Orchard on digital platforms, Oct. 24. The movie is a sequel to 2014’s Creep in which Mark Duplass played a sinister character called Aaron who hires a videographer, portrayed by that film’s real-life director, Patrick Brice. Brice also directed Creep 2, which was written by the filmmaker and Duplass. Netflix will stream the movie later in the year.

Creep 2 stars Desiree Akhavan as Sara, a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for “video work” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man (Duplass) claiming to be a serial killer. Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him, but discovers she may have dug herself a hole from which she cannot escape.

“We are overjoyed to bring the next chapter of Creep into the world!,” Brice said in a statement. “The fact that audiences have embraced the first film in such an unexpected way has been so heartening. We hope Creep 2 with bring a new level of fear, discomfort and joy to loyal fans and newcomers alike.”
