When Chad (Kanin Guntzelman) wants to break up with Steph (Brittany Anne Woodford), it drives her so over the edge that she strangles him to death - and then she calls Dave (Jake White), who has been in unrequitted love with her for years, and her only real friend Carrie (Jenny Curtis), to help her bury the body in the desert. And Carrie brings along her boyfriend Jeb (Brendan McGowan), who has never really trusted Steph. So this sounds like a bit of an explosive mix from the get-go, but things get worse when their car breaks down right after they have buried the body, and when they walk back through the desert, the rifts between our heroes start to break open and it's not long before they're at each other's throats - and then they're back at the car again, apparently having gone in a circle all these hours, only the car's ransacked, and they find a camera with a tape that shows them burying Chad. What they don't know yet though is Chad has come back to life as a sort of tree monster - and he's more than a little pissed about having been killed and buried. And that's not even the worst of our gang's problems ...

 

Friends Don't Let Friends probably sounds much more formulaic and indeed sillier (tree monster!!!) than it is, as the whole film goes much deeper than people arguing and running, it's about manipulation, loyalty, friendship (and the frailty thereof), and everytime one thinks one has figured out the plot, it twists and turns in an entirely unexpected way, up until the reveal in the finale. And all of this works thanks to an intelligently written script that is nevertheless tense and suspenseful enough to keep one at the edge of one's seat pretty much throughout, and all of this is carried by a solid and relateable cast and a subtle yet effective directorial effort.

Very cool genre entertainment, actually!
