Hey! I'm watching a horror movie a day for the month of October. I'm gonna try and only watch ones I haven't seen, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day. They will at least be ones I think more people should watch that aren't high on the list of most non-horror movie fanatic's radars.

Without further ado, lets get started.

Creep (2014)



There's just something so weirdly captivating about this found footage gem that takes the shaky-cam concept to its most logical conclusion. Co-writer, director and star Patrick Brice plays a down-on-his-luck videographer who is hired to record a lonely man named Josef (Mark Duplass) for a single day.

The joy from this movie comes in the slow realization of Josef's reasoning behind hiring Patrick and the slow meltdown of their blossoming friendship. The final 10 minutes carries so much tension that the film is almost unbearable to witness but, even at its darkest, "Creep" always has a sly and depraved sense of humor. Rumor has it this will be the first of a trilogy, so dive into this deliriously twisted world before everyone else catches on.

Available on Netflix.
