Director James Kapner makes his feature debut with The Estate, part dark comedy, part thriller, which reminds us that family reunions can be brutal.
In the film, when a narcissistic son (Chris Baker), yearning for a life of luxury, and his father’s erratic gold-digging wife (Eliza Coupe) decide to kill their way into their inheritance, they employ the help of an absurdly handsome, mysterious hitman (Greg Finley), initiating a psychosexual love triangle that spirals into more than anyone bargained for. Deftly balancing sharp humor and horror, The Estate delivers a perfectly campy, wildly enjoyable thrill ride that packs a deadly punch.
Written by Chris Baker, The Estate also stars Eliza Coupe, Chris Baker, Lala Kent, Heather Matazarro, and Eric Roberts.
The Estate debuts in theaters and VOD on October 22, 2021, from Vertical Entertainment.
