A friend sent me a movie a while back that I really liked -- it played the festival circuit and won awards at the 2007 Slamdance Film Festival. Now it's finally coming out on DVD on October 16th from Magnolia Pictures and you have to check it out. It's called Murder Party, a smart, original, dark comedy written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier about a nerdish New Yorker who finds an invitation on the street to a Halloween costume party in Brooklyn. But when he gets there he is tied up by a crazed group of wannabe artists who plan to torture and kill him as a way to win an artist grant. It goes wildly over the top, it's gory and funny and skewers the art world at the same time. What's not to love?
