Trailer for Easter Horror Film 'Family Dinner' Spends a Nightmarish Weekend with Relatives

The table is set for Family Dinner to have its World Premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, and Capra Film has shared the film's dread-filled teaser trailer this afternoon. Watch it below.

Here’s the film’s synopsis via Tribeca:

"Tired of feeling down about her weight, plus-sized 15-year-old Simi heads to her aunt Claudia’s house for Easter weekend. Claudia is a popular nutritionist who’s written best-selling health books, so for Simi, spending a few days together could help change her diet and inspire weight loss."

"What should’ve been a nice holiday weekend with family, however, quickly reveals itself to be anything but. Simi’s cousin, Filipp, is curiously hostile towards her, while Filipp’s stepdad, Stefan, is curiously the opposite towards Simi, all while Claudia’s dietary guidance verges on becoming overly militant. What’s causing everyone to act so strangely and aggressively? The answers are even worse than Simi’s worst nightmares."

The psychological horror-thriller was written and directed by Peter Hengl, who makes their feature-length debut.

Nina Katlein, Pia Hierzegger, Alexander Sladek, and Michael Pink star in the film, which was produced by Lola Basara. Annick Mahnert (It Came from the Desert) and Ant Timpson (Turbo Kid, Deathgasm, Come to Daddy) are executive producers.

Family Dinner will be served next Friday, June 10th at the Village East Cinema.
