A murder mystery game goes wrong
Per an official logline, “the film centers on a group of rich 20-somethings who plan a hurricane party at a remote family mansion. The party game goes awry when someone takes the game too seriously.”
Friends begin to kill
In the trailer, the group of friends all stop partying to play the mystery game. The rules are that everyone has to draw a slip of paper to determine who’s the killer. Whoever draws the X card hunts down and “murders” while the others try to survive the night. There are twists and turns with players crying. Someone takes the game too literally and becomes a real killer, leading to a scene out of 20/20.
The trailer features “Hot Girl,” a new original song from Charli XCX.
