Storyline

Blake and Q are childhood best friends, roommates, and well - soulmates. After a long day trying to maintain her #girlboss status at work, Blake's one-track mind is solely set on the nachos Q has promised to make for dinner. In addition to the nachos, however, Q has also unexpectedly managed to kill someone in their apartment. Through a series of heavily graphic and hilarious situations, the girls tap into their inner serial killers and decide to handle the body themselves. Their naivete and inexperience leads to a weekend full of accidental drugs, Saran Wrap, and body that, for whatever reason, will not stop bleeding. So hypothetically speaking - how do you get rid of a body? Asking for a friend.

22 January 2020 | by edward-bukowskiSee all my reviews

Great film. Cinematically beautiful. I watched it with a group of reviewers from my film festival and we all agreed on giving it the highest ratings in our rate/review options on my Filmfreeway festival submissions page, I had recommend it to our other teams of reviewers and our judges, They too agreed it was a flawless film, we all loved it. It is a Great story, The characters are very well portrayed and keep the audience wanting more, The pace was perfect. The dramatic structure, (exposition) was very well executed, from composition to conflict, climax and denouement it kept us entertained, we all loved the end too, brought it full circle and kept us engaged and wanting more! Technically everything was spot on, the Directing is top notch, great audio, score, visuals, amazing practical effects and editing too, we screened it at prime time to a full house at Regal Cinemas at LA LIVE Saturday night November 9th, 2019 in our 300 seat theater, the same theater that has premieres of top Hollywood films, with full surround sound, this film was amazing on the big screen, This film is a very strong proof of concept for a feature length version, This 25 minute film could be the opening act for the feature as the story is very cleverly written for this to be developed into a feature length film, It won many awards and all the attendees agreed this filmmaker will be one to watch in the future. we hope to see this filmmaker come back to us at my film festival with the feature length version of this later..
