The festival favorite starring STARRY EYES and DOCTOR SLEEP’s Alex Essoe is now seeing general release, and we’ve got an exclusive excerpt (with lots of NSFW language) to share with you.

Uncork’d Entertainment and Dark Star Pictures are bringing HOMEWRECKER to select theaters this Friday, June 26 and digital platforms/DVD July 7. Zach Gayne directed from a script he wrote with Essoe and her co-star Precious Chong; the cast also includes Anthony Matthews and Kris Siddiqi. The synopsis: “Michelle [Essoe] is an interior designer and newlywed to Robert [Siddiqi]. Linda [Chong] lives alone and fills her days with painting and exercise classes. Seeking a new friend, Linda coerces the reserved, deferential Michelle into visiting her home for a spontaneous interior design consultation. Once inside, it quickly becomes clear that Linda has something far more sinister on her mind than throw pillows.”
