One of our most anticipated genre offerings of the month is IFC's WOULD YOU RATHER, a sinister looking film about a group of dinner guests forced to play a game in which they must choose between one of two unappealing options or face dire consequences. With a set-up like that it is hard to not be intrigued by what director David Guy-Levy and company have in store for us with this thriller, and with a cast that includes Jeffrey Combs, John Heard, Brittany Snow, Sasha Grey and Charlie Hofheimer it's almost a sure bet that this film will deliver as promised.
It was only a week ago that we shared the quite literally shocking first pulse-pounding clip with you and today we are excited to share yet another look at WOULD YOU RATHER in the form of an exclusive 2-minute peek that features horror icon Jeffrey Combs explaining the rules of the game.
What would you do if a millionaire offered you a chance to solve all your life’s problems? After the tragic death of her parents, Iris (Brittany Snow) is desperate to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. Shepard Lambrick (Jeffrey Combs), a seemingly philanthropic aristocrat, expresses an interest in helping them. He invites her to an exclusive dinner party that offers the chance at untold riches. When she arrives she finds herself in a group of similarly desperate individuals from the gruff middle aged Conway (John Heard) to the dark loner Amy (Sasha Grey). They soon find themselves trapped in Lambrick's mansion and forced to play a sadistic game of Would You Rather, where only the winner will get out alive. As the game progress Iris must decide how far she will go to save her brother… and herself.
WOULD YOU RATHER also stars Lawrence Gilliard, Jr., Enver Gjokaj and Jonny Coyne and will be released both theatrically and on VOD, SundanceNow and other digital platforms on February 8.
