Watch: The Nightmare Begins In U.S. For Quentin Dupieux's Totally Weird 'Reality'

It’s not every day that you’d expect to find the likes of Alain Chabat, Jon Heder and Eric Wareheim in the same movie. Then again, films from French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux don’t come down the pike every day. Hold on to your hats —your Friday is about to get pretty weird.

From the man who brought you “Rubber” and “Wrong Cops” comes a picture about the business of making movies. When young cameraman Jason decides to make a horror movie, he finds a benefactor in a wealthy producer who agrees to help him out on one condition: he must find the most perfect scream in 48 hours. And so begins Jason’s journey, which turns into the stuff of nightmares in which reality and surreality blend and overlap.

“Reality” opens in limited release and on VOD on May 8th. Watch below.
