Misery meets Single White Female – with an extra dose of (Let’s Get) Physical thrown in for good measure – as a woman gets more than she bargains for when she makes a new friend at the gym in Homewrecker. This deliciously bleak and black satire, with gore and laughs in equal measure, is set for its UK premiere on 24 May from 101 Films.
When happy-go-lucky interior designer Michelle (Alex Essoe – Doctor Sleep, The Haunting Of Bly Manor), has a chance encounter at a fitness class, with the pushy and overly friendly Linda (Precious Chong – Falling Water, Flashpoint), she soon discovers there’s more to her than meets the eye and training might be bad for her health.
When the pair meet at the gym, Linda convinces Michelle to come to her house and redesign it. Despite her wariness, Michelle’s politeness wins out and she reluctantly agrees…But once at the house, she soon realises she’s made a terrible mistake…as Linda’s demeanour rapidly changes and her behaviour becomes increasingly erratic…could this one-woman wrecking ball threaten her whole existence?
As the dangerous and obsessive streak spirals out of control…Michelle grows more and more desperate to evade Linda’s clutches and her increasingly bizarre and disturbing measures to trap her. As the violence explodes into a bloody gore-fest will Michelle ever break free from this one-woman wrecking ball of mayhem?
Homewrecker, directed by Zach Gayne (States, Found Viral), is tongue-in-cheek fun with a bucketload of blood in equal measure and will have you second guessing that new friend you made at the gym…
