BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Damn, I had high high hopes for this film, being that I loved the first one and couldn't wait to watch the second... saying that though, it took me a good year or so to watch it. "A video artist looking for work drives to a remote house in the forest to meet a man claiming to be a serial killer. But after agreeing to spend the day with him, she soon realizes that she made a deadly mistake."
The first Creep was a breath of fresh air I thought, and had a charm to it - normally jump scares are bad in a film but this film works off them. It's a personal hand held camera, found footage film, that will try and make you jump all the time. Would Creep 2 keep up with my love for the films - of course it did! It follows a very original story while kind of following the original story - let me explain that very confusing sentence...
It uses the original story, of someone going to film Aaron after he posted an advert online, the way this one differs is Sara is doing it for YouTube account and I really liked that idea, so damn much. I also loved how it started, I won't say it all as it's better if you don't know what's coming, but it really reminds you of what you were in for with the first film. It really took you back to what happened in Creep and I was super duper excited for it all a sudden!
Creep and Creep 2 are films that make you stressed out, so damn stressed that I was sweating, sweating I tell you! Both films work off scaring you in ways that normally horror films try and stay away from...cheap jump scares. Creep 2 has one whole scene of Sara walking through the woods looking for Aaron, it's tense. In other scenes she will walk through a door and Aaron will just jump out and scream in her face, simple right? Simple but scares that in a lot of other films wouldn't work, but in these films it works so damn well, it goes with the whole amateur filming of it. It's done on one camera and the simple scares suits the simple camera work and the simple film making.
I've realised I've used the word simple a lot in this review, simple is not a bad thing in anyway, it's a breath of fresh air sometimes, you can go from a film with lots of CGI to this and you'd love it.
I love both these films, they are just charming and easy to watch while also stressing you out more than you thought you ever could. Creep 2 isn't as good as the first one I thought, I feel that is just down to the fact that the first was new and I had no idea what I was in for. This one I had an idea, but it is still entertaining and still just fun to watch - I'd definitely and happily watch it again... I'll make sure not to have my cat on my lap this time though...he nearly ended up on the ceiling when I jumped last time...
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
