Verdict on Mister Creep
Mister Creep is a found-footage horror movie following a group of students searching for answers about a serial killer. It introduces a mystery that could be career-breaking if solved. However, they are not prepared for what they discover about the serial killer.
This is the type of found footage movie that brings the idea together well. However, the visuals fall too heavily onto the shaky camera. No suspense is built up around the incident and the shock value is what is relied on. These shocking moments are held back through, letting the audience imagine how twisted the deaths are.
When it comes to the serial killer, he has a twisted back story and an uncomfortable look. One that plays into the masked killers of the world. There is also a look at the idea of having a serial killer that communities would want to keep quiet, letting the internet spread the stories about them.
Final Thoughts – Mister Creep is a found-footage movie that lacks suspense, and the shocks don’t hit home.
