Everyone becomes caught in the unruly web of Stanley's peculiar birthday party. Read More >

Stanley the unemployed musician leads a mundane but peaceful life, as the only guest living with the mumsy doting Meg, and quiet agreeable Petey. When the deeply sinister Goldberg and McCann arrive, their intentions grow progressively more ominous. Everyone, from the resort owners to the unsuspecting girl next door, becomes caught in the unruly web of Stanley’s peculiar birthday party.
