In this sardonic, button-pushing directorial debut from actress and “Red Scare” podcast host Dasha Nekrasova, two mismatched roommates discover and relive the murky secrets of their new Upper East Side apartment. Co-starring Cucalorus alum Betsey Brown (also seen at Cuc 27 in her own feature Actors) in a performance so dynamic one might say she seems possessed, this lobbed grenade of conspiracy horror angrily and hilariously takes aim at billionaire creepazoid Jeffrey Epstein, the Royal Family, and delicate viewer sensibilities.
