Here at Movie Ramblings we are big fans of Alex Essoe – ever since Starry Eyes to be precise. In fact, we’ve even had the chance to interview her on this site about a couple of her projects.

So, when a press release dropped about Alex’s latest we were always going to bite, so here’s the details on the upcoming Homewrecker:

From Uncork’d Entertainment and Dark Star Pictures, Alex Essoe (Doctor Sleep) and Precious Chong (L.A Confidential) star in director Zach Gayne’s “hilarious, dark view of modern loneliness” that has “the energy of a Jane Fonda workout tape” (Rotten Tomatoes).

Michelle is an interior designer and newlywed to Robert. Linda 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.

Scripted by Precious Chong, Alex Essoe and Zach Gayne, Homewrecker is “a delightfully twisted tale of obsession that is full of surprises” (Cinema Axis) with “a pair of great lead performances at its center” (TheCriterionCast).

Here’s a trailer for the film, heading to DVD and digital on July 7 (after some US drive-in dates from July 3):
