About the film:
World Premiere at SXSW 2022. In 1979, a group of young filmmakers set out to make an adult film in a secluded farmhouse in rural Texas. Their reclusive, elderly hosts take a special interest in their young guests and, as night falls in, the couple’s leering interest takes a violent turn.
“an homage to the gritty indie horror of the ’70s but with savage style and a deranged sense of humor that’s pure Ti West… finds ingenious and innovative ways to create edge-of-your-seat suspense”
—Megan Navarro for Bloody Disgusting
