About the film:

World Premiere at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival. In an isolated family mansion, a group of rich 20-somethings decide to play Bodies Bodies Bodies, a game where one of them is secretly a “killer” while the rest try to “escape”. Things take a turn for the worse when real bodies start turning up, setting off a paranoid and dangerous chain of events.

smartly allows its talented cast to dig themselves into a gloriously silly (and bloody) hole, keeping viewers guessing about the resolution until the final minutes.”
