Director: James Ward Byrkit
Year Released: 2013
Six dinner party guests convene one night while a comet happens to be soaring overhead, disrupting cell phone communications and causing 'reality' to become distorted (the presence of the comet appears to create 'innumerable' copies of the guests). It's a neat idea done with limited resources (the camera constantly going out of focus is distracting), although the presentation is a iffy: Byrkit actually needs to invoke "Schrödinger's cat" to explain what he's going for and the third act revelation is creaky (The One I Love ended on a similar note). Mindfuck movies only work to the degree that they keep the audience's confidence and not play tricks on them (losing that 'trust'): I think Bykrit has noble intentions, but I'm not positive it holds up even on its own level of logic. What I really want to know is: what is going on in the house where the guests are tied up and gagged? That's a universe I want to visit.
