World-premiering this month at the Fantasia International Film Festival, HOMEWRECKER is a study in severe domestic disturbance with STARRY EYES’ Alex Essoe. We’ve got the exclusive first look at the trailer.

Directed by Zach Gayne from a script he wrote with stars Essoe and Precious Chong, HOMEWRECKER has its debut screening on Friday, July 26 at Fantasia, with Gayne, Essoe, Chong and producers Josh Mandel and Ben Umstead in attendance. The film will also have an encore showing Sunday, July 28. The synopsis: “Michelle [Essoe] meets Linda [Chong] at a yoga class. Linda’s wide-eyed enthusiasm is clearly off-putting, but Michelle’s aversion to conflict makes it difficult for her to brush off the increasingly pushy woman. Things escalate once Linda asks Michelle to redecorate her home and refuses to let her leave.” Click here for more info on the Fantasia screenings.
