review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's Katie's (Elizabeth Gaynor) 30th birthday, and her boyfriend Reo (Sopheaktra Theng) has made every effort to make this day special for her, pretty much taking her out to brunch, to cocktails with their best friends Brian (Carmine Giordano) and Meghan (Carley Harper), shopping for a dress for the evening, and finally to dinner with their best friends Brian (Carmine Giordano) and Meghan (Carley Harper) to the fancy Japanese restaurant he works at. Things get slightly out of hands there as they've all had a bit too much to drink and Brian gets a bit agitated, but with the help of the restaurant owner and his boss, Jin (Wataru Nishida), Reo has the situation under control in no time, sending Brian home, then seeing to it that Katie, the most drunk of them all, can sleep it off undisturbed. Thing is, Reo and Jin have ulterior motives, and soon the girls find themselves all tied up - because while the restaurant isn't doing that awesomely, there are always some rich fucks who would gladly pay a fortune for tasting some human flesh ...

 

Even if this film is shot the found footage way, this is not a movie that mistakes shaky cameras for suspense, but actually creates it the old-fashioned way, meaning it gives away at the beginning just enough to let the audience know there's something bad happening to Katie, to then increase the tension by the minute by giving away hints but never the full story - until about halfway in, when the film shifts from suspense piece to biting (and very dark) social commentary, giving voice to its villains - and their rather mundane conversations only make their deeds much more sickening, and add to the film's macabre qualities. Now granted, this is not a film for everybody, and even if it's not an outright comedy, a very dark sense of humour sure helps, but for those inclined, it sure deserves a watch!
