DINNER FOR THE END OF THE WORLD – DARK COMEDY ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD

When a group of friends attends Margie and Gerry’s regular Couples Dinner, they assume the most eventful part of the evening will be scoping out unlucky-in-love Jamie’s new boyfriend. Will he be as psycho as her previous partners? But before long, secrets come spilling out, affairs are revealed – and that’s not even the eventful part! A neighbour in a hazmat suit arrives to warn them that dirty bombs have been set off all over the country, and so, thanks to chemical warfare, the end is very much nigh in this dark comedy about the end of the world.

As the friends scramble to decide whether to blockade the house or make a run for it, another couple (late for dinner in every sense of the word) drops dead on the doorstep. And in the midst of all this, Jamie’s new boyfriend Harold attempts to murder everyone … but only in order to save their souls. It’s a kindness, really. After all, it is the end of the world… or is it?
