Directed by Brian Yuzna

United States 1989 99 mins.

Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock), a Beverly Hills high school jock-type, seems to have his future all lined up, but something about his well off family, friends, and the high-society life he’s destined for just seems off.  After hearing a tape of what sounds like a murderous orgy, Bill Whitney begins to become suspicious of his family, and starts to recruit help to figure out what exactly is going on. Brian Yuzna’s body-horror filled critique of upper crust society is as appropriate today as it was at the end of the Reagan era.

Content Warning: violence and grotesque imagery.

 



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
