Tired of the online dating world, a hopeful young woman decides to give it one last try with a mysterious stranger who shares her love for scary films…


“You shouldn’t go in expecting high-tech effects and jump scares galore, but rather endless laughs you can share with a group of your best friends. It’s not the scariest thing in the world; as a matter of fact, I didn’t find any of it scary. But it is one that horror fans can appreciate for its dedication to delivering entertaining films.” Celia Thomas, Morbidly Beautiful
