Patrick Brice, USA 2014, 78’

When the song Creep became Radiohead’s biggest hit it also became their nightmare, because they never intended it to be their calling card. In his feature debut, director Patrick Brice should not have the same problem, because this original romp through the horror genre could well become his signature style. It all begins innocently enough, with an internet ad for a job. All you have to do is go to a mountain cabin and record everything that happens for 24 hours. Discretion guaranteed. Unsure? A $1000 day rate should help quash any doubts. At least that’s how Aaron saw it, though it’s hard to decide if he more desperate or naïve. Ah well, to err is human…
