"Mick Taylor is one of the most sadistic characters I have seen onscreen, and the sequel does not disappoint -- it gets under the skin. We can't wait to show horror fans!" said Image's chief acquisition officer, Bill Bromiley.

The deal was made at AFM, and Image is planning a release in 2014.

Creek 2 premiered at this year's Venice International Film Festival, and Mclean has since signed with CAA.

Paradigm and Nelson David helped broker the deal.
