You can dive into this psychosexual horror/comedy that has just started streaming virtually.

Part of the Newport Beach Film Festival, THE ESTATE is a combination of terror and camp in the Ryan Murphy mode. Directed by James Kapner, it was scripted by Chris Baker, who also stars, and the cast additionally includes Eliza Coupe, Greg Finley, Heather Matarazzo, Eric Roberts, Lala Kent and Alexandra Billings. The synopsis: “When a narcissistic son [Baker] yearning for a life of luxury and his father’s erratic gold-digging wife [Coupe] decide to kill their way into their inheritance, they employ the help of an absurdly handsome, mysterious hitman [Finley], initiating a psychosexual love triangle that spirals into more than anyone bargained for.” To watch the movie on-line now, head over to its Newport Fest page.
