A strange little movie
1 February 2019 | by contact-86263See all my reviews

A man picks up a piece of paper blowing around on the street which turns out to be an invitation to a "murder party". Being rather lonely he takes up the invitation and soon finds he will be the subject of the murder.

From here things get strange and sometimes quite humorous.

It's certainly worth a look and you won't feel you've wasted your time.
