Crush the Skull
Directed by Viet Nguyen
Viet Nguyen’s comedic thriller CRUSH THE SKULL is a roller coaster of unexpected twists and calculated turns that take a couple of master thieves on the ride of their lives. This SAW-like anecdote shares bits of humor and plenty of uncertainty as master thieves Ollie and Blair soon discover what awaits them in the home they broke into.
After witnessing a horrifying suicide and getting arrested, Ollie and Blair are forced to cash in a favor and are left with nothing. Defeated, they attempt to step away from crime, but are offered another chance at a big score. They reluctantly accept and go into business with Blair’s brother. What seems to be an easy job quickly escalates due to a sharp lack of experience and leads them straight into the lair of a deranged serial killer.
In trying to navigate the dark corridors and understand how to escape mysteriously locked rooms, dead ends and wrong turns, they eventually come to face to face with the killer and agree it’s better to be safe than sorry.
