Like a gay variation on Get Out, this socio-political shocker is a masterclass in escalating tension.

It’s 1995. Malik and his partner Aaron, along with Aaron’s teenage daughter, have uprooted to the suburbs in order to start a new chapter in their lives. The arrival of an interracial gay couple in a small town does not go unnoticed by the locals, but while most appear friendly, a pointed act of vandalism triggers painful memories for hate crime survivor Malik. As a creeping sense of paranoia grows, Malik catches a glimpse of a strange gathering being held by his neighbour and suspects dark forces at play. Featuring a standout performance by Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman as Malik, Kurtis David Harder’s smart and scary horror film may be set in the mid-90s, but serves as a chilling sign of our times.
