QuarterLife Crisis Synopsis
With his relationship on the rocks and working a dead-end job, life after college wasn't quite what 27-year-old Neil Desai (Pancholy) had planned. Luckily, his testosterone-packed buddies have a genius solution: a week-long bender in New York's crazy singles scene. At the hands of their scheming limo driver (Peters), every night is guys' night—until Neil's on-again, off-again girlfriend (Ray) learns of their crazy exploits, in the worst way possible.
Telling Lies Synopsis
"Vincent," made up by Faith and Eve to win back Faith's ex-boyfriend, seemed like the perfect ploy for creating jealousy among school mates. Things take a nasty turn when Detective Maggie Thomas (Brown) arrests Faith for "Vincent's" murder after a body is found in a nearby hotel. Faith swears Vincent was invented by Eve (Stables), but Detective Thomas and Faith's father (Flemyng) believe it is Eve—with no existing records—who isn't real. With all evidence pointing to her, Faith must rely on Detective Thomas to unravel the mysterious connection between Vincent, Eve, and herself, a connection much closer—and deadlier—than she realized.
Razor Eaters Synopsis
In a week-long anarchistic rampage of violence, death, and destruction, the Razor Eaters take suburbia prisoner, gaining a cult following by taping their attacks on all who deserve punishment: corrupt politicians, arrogant sports stars, filthy drug dealers and more. Following their trail of looted and trashed stores, scorched cars, and bullet-riddled bodies, Detective Danny Berdan relentlessly tracks the gang until the ultimate bloody confrontation explodes in a mind-blowing, twist ending.
