The Christmas holiday is fast approaching, which means that the temptation to go hard on the eggnog will be difficult to resist. But as the upcoming thriller “Body” warns, holiday season hijinks can go too far, and put you in a fight for your life. Fair warning.
Debuting earlier this year at the Slamdance Film Festival, the film from directors Dan Berk and Robert Olsen stars Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen, Lauren Molina, and Larry Fessenden. The story follows three young women looking for some fun on Christmas Eve, who wind up with a dead body on their hands, and that’s just the start of their troubles as they spent the night trying to survive. Here’s the official synopsis:
A darkly funny and twisted journey taking place entirely on one unforgettable Christmas Eve, Body revolves around a trio of college co-eds whose dalliance with breaking-and-entering goes horribly awry. Sneaking off to a secluded mansion to party, the young girls are faced with dire choices after they unexpectedly encounter the property’s groundskeeper. Following a freak accident, the girls find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian nightmare steeped in tension, suspicion, double-crossing, and murder, where no one is to be trusted and a new twist lies around every corner.
“Body” opens in early 2016 via Oscilloscope Laboratories. Watch below.
