#37: “Creep”

Time to kick off season 2! The guys tackle this found-footage horror flick about a lonely weirdo and ask the question: How much would you put up with for the sake of politeness?

From IMDB: A young videographer answers an online ad for a one-day job in a remote town to record the last messages of a dying man. When he notices the man’s odd behavior, he starts to question his intentions.
