And then back to the lounge for a few more beers before the late show--INTRUDERS. It's a darkly funny thriller from Korea. In the vein of MISERY (there is even an explicit reference to it) a writer goes to a secluded cabin in the woods where he hopes to get some peace and just write. Along the way, he meets a pushy man who talks about just getting out of prison and how it's great to finally talk to a human. And when he finally gets away from him and gets to his cabin...he still doesn't get peace. He's bothered by constant news bulletins about escalating tensions with North Korea over nuclear testing. He's bothered by partying skiers looking for a place to stay. He's bothered by hunters. He's bothered by the dead body he finds in the woods. Wait, what!? He's bothered by the woman he finds in the bathroom when he's looking for help who then accuses him of trying to rape her. He's bothered by a lot of things, and he's not having a very peaceful time in the woods and really not getting any writing done. But at least he's surviving...maybe.
That was a lot of fun.
