One of the most chilling psychological thrillers in recent memory. A man named Will (Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus) and his new girlfriend show up at his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard, Into the Woods) and her new husband, David’s (Michiel Huisman, Game of Thrones) dinner party. Everything seems set for a reunion dinner with some old friends they haven’t seen for two years. But as the evening progresses a sense of paranoia develops when the host and his new wife begin acting strangely. Suspicious of Eden’s behaviour and concerned by her mysterious house guests, Will becomes convinced that a hidden agenda lies behind his invitation. The film unfolds over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, blurring layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror and leading to an eerie climax.

 

Reviews

A scarily contemporary horror story...a searing version of a very real, very plausible, very dangerous thing that's happening in our increasingly interconnected world. It's about how the fear of having a human experience is actually stripping away the humanity inside people...a story and experience you'll not soon forget.
