About the films:
Long Beach Island – Adam moves into the suburbs with his girlfriend after getting rich from bitcoin. Their old pal Tony and his girlfriend come to spend time in their new big house with them. What happens next gets awkward, and I don’t know how to describe this movie anymore than that. But you’ll love it! Come see it.
The Shit Show – Collin lives in Brooklyn with his pet frog; until his pet frog dies one day. This emotional trauma sends Collin into a manic episode where he convinces Tommy, his coworker, to take a poop in the woods for money in the name of performance art. (This movie is the reason I own a golden urinal)
No Cure 4 Fools – Three degenerates hang out drinking and smoking in a public park at night. When suddenly a creature they’ve never experienced approaches them holding a cryptic pyramid. This film is pretty spooky
