As elegant as it is disturbing, the indie horror film The Dinner Party invites viewers to witness a gathering they’ll never forget.

From director and star Miles Doleac who co-wrote the film along with Michael Donovan comes the film that follows a playwright and his wife who have been invited to a dinner at a patron’s home. What the couple doesn’t know is that they’re on the menu.

As always, Doleac’s films continue to please. The Dinner Party has an heir of sophistication and beauty but also the intensity and horror that will keep viewers intrigued.

The cast of The Dinner Party includes Doleac, Jeremy London, Bill Sage, Sawandi Wilson, Lindsay Anne Williams, Alli Hart, and Mike Mayhall who did wonderfully in their roles, especially our heroine played by Hart who captures both innocence and strength.

The Dinner Table takes a stab at the elite, bringing the thought that the affluent can get away with murder, and often do. It also highlights that some people will do anything to be influential and rich which sometimes includes downright evil acts.

While tackling the controversy of eating flesh, the movie is about so much more. It’s horror, satire, comedy, drama, and a thriller all wrapped in one pretty package.

The Dinner Party delivers sophisticated horror with a twist. That’s something we don’t get enough of these days, that’s why I’m going give it a 5/5. The Dinner Party opens in theaters and lands on VOD and Digital June 5th.
