Evan Dickson is back with more from the SXSW Film Festival, this time sharing his review from the World Premiere of Plus One, the latest film from The Last House on the Left‘s Dennis Iliadis.
In the horror party starring Rhys Wakefield, Logan Miller, Ashley Hinshaw and Natalie Hall, three college friends go to the biggest party of the year, each looking for something different: love, sex and a simple human connection. When a supernatural phenomenon disrupts the party, it lights a fuse on what will become the strangest night anyone has ever seen.
“Plus One demands that you pay attention if you want to keep up, something you’re not usually asked to do in sci-fi horror movies soaked in booze and sexuality,” says Dickson. “If you do, you’ll find that the film has a lot on its mind. It’s an inspired take on what happens when we choose to view the world through a fearful lens rather than an accepting one.”
As for the style, well, it’s got a lot going on, too: “It sets up a unique Project X via Can’t Hardly Wait universe and melds it into an Invasion Of The Body Snatchers shaped mold.”
It sounds amazing, no? Click here for the entire review.
