We received a press junket for the film THE DINNER PARTY, now available for livestreaming and on DVD. You can check out the trailer for it here. Here’s the official spiel: “Bill Sage (American Psycho, “Power”) and Jeremy London (Mallrats, The Devil’s Dozen) star in writer-director Miles Doleac’s The Dinner Party, now available on DVD and Digital from Uncork’d Entertainment. Renowned surgeon and culinary enthusiast, Carmine Braun, invites playwright, Jeffrey Duncan, and his wife to join his eccentric friends at their semi-annual dinner party, having promised to fund Duncan’s new play to Broadway. As the evening descends into madness, the group’s true intentions are revealed, along with an ancient secret that will change the Duncans’ lives and fortunes forever.”
Looks interesting. The trailer doesn’t give much away. Anytime I see a movie with the word “dinner” in the title I automatically assume it’s going to involve cannibalism. I’m not sure if that’s true of this one, but it could be. As stated, the trailer reveals little; neither does the synopsis. It also puts me in mind a little of the 1974 drive-in masterpiece THE BEAST MUST DIE with Peter Cushing. There’s no guarantee we’ll get a beast with THE DINNER PARTY, though. There probably isn’t one. But I hope there is.
