All the way back in October (seems long ago, doesn't it?), we reported on IFC Midnight's acquisition of the thriller WOULD YOU RATHER, starring Jeffrey Combs, Brittany Snow and Sasha Grey. Today we learn that the horror number will be getting a FEBRUARY 8th release. Would you rather see it in the theater or on VOD?
In the wake of her parent's death, Iris struggles to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. Shepard Lambrick, a seemingly philanthropic aristocrat, expresses an interest in helping them. When he invites her to an exclusive dinner party, she accepts. Also attending the dinner party are seven more desperate individuals. They soon find themselves trapped in Lambrick's mansion and forced to play a sadistic game of Would You Rather, where the winner will be awarded untold amounts of money. As the game progresses, the dilemmas Iris and the other players face grow increasingly deadly.
WOULD YOU RATHER? also stars Lawrence Gilliard, Jr., John Heard, Enver Gjokaj and Jonny Coyne. A chap by the name of Steffen Schlachtenhauffen wrote it, and David Guy Levy directed.
