Movie news blog JoBlo is reporting that Netflix has acquired exclusive worldwide streaming rights to horror-comedy film Creep from director Patrick Brice and co-written by Brice and Mark Duplass, who also stars in the film and co-produced it along with Jason Blum.
Creep is a found footage film, which debuted at SXSW last year, and currently holds a 6.7 rating on IMDb, which provides the following synopsis:
When a videographer answers a Craigslist ad for a one-day job in a remote mountain town, he finds his client is not at all what he initially seems.
According to JoBlo, the film will see a July 14th Netflix release worldwide.
Earlier this year, Netflix revealed that it signed a four-film agreement with Duplass Brothers Productions, the production company of Mark and his brother Jay Duplass, which is responsible for titles like Baghead, Safety Not Guaranteed, Bad Milo, The Skeleton Twins, Togetherness, and others. Creep is not one of these films.
“This is just the latest step in our very long relationship with the Duplass Brothers,” Netflix’s Ted Sarandos told Deadline in January of that deal. “We’ve been working with them almost since the very beginning, when we were red envelope delivery. Independent film has always been a big part of Netflix, and the reason we do things like the Adam Sandler deal is so we can do things like this as well.”
In other Netflix content news, the company is reportedly trying to acquire Black Mirror, which is already popular on its streaming service.
