Storyline

A chance encounter at a laundromat between a young man and young woman turns into an afternoon lunch date. As they get to know each other, bizarre stories begin to unfold, some fact, some fiction about each other's past. Eventually, the Young Man delves into a story about a birthday party whose guests began to be systematically killed off by a maniac in a white jump suit. The Young Woman, oddly enough, becomes more and more intrigued with the tale as the mayhem mounts. Is this the beginning of a beautiful relationship or a building block leading to a day ending in madness beyond fairy tales? Written by Anthony Burns

Very well acted, well shot, all wasted by a dumb ending
26 April 2010 | by (Indianapolis) – See all my reviews

I had high hopes. The story was compelling and Henry Thomas and Kelli Garner were great together. The film was beautifully shot with lots of fun saturated colors, the technique of jumping between the horror story and the conversation between the 2 actors was fantastic and the dialogue snapped....

It just fell flat at the end. It was a fairly predictable ending and way too weak for such a great build up.

It's a good example of how great acting and film technique can be undermined by a weak story. It's sad really. It was like having a delicious appetizer, a great main course and then eating crap for dessert.

The film makers show promise, but overall a 7 was the highest I could give this. It had an 8.5 going into the last 10 minutes.

One of the dumbest endings ever.
