Edit A grad student kidnaps two homophobic high-school bullies to use as her subjects in an experiment performed at the bottom of an empty swimming pool.

Two homophobic high-school bullies are kidnapped by a grad student planning to perform experiments on them. Official Trailer On or about September 6, 2019, the film was in Completed status.

Groupers is a new movie in the dark revenge comedy drama hybrid genre. The plot has a deliciously gay twist and the first half of the movie just made me smile and laugh.

Most good comedies (especially when you incorporate horror or slasher elements) need to keep a tight runtime. The movie opens with Nicole Dam bro’s character, Meg, kidnapping two young men.

However, while Pitchfork is a classic slasher movie, Groupers is more of a psychological terror deal. And Meg (Nicole Dam bro) has a pretty excellent way of teaching them this important lesson.

Instead, the important and funny focus of Groupers was watered down in all the wrong ways. The main plot of teaching some homophobic brats a lesson is awesome and funny.

The scenes with just Nicole Dam bro (Meg, the kidnapper) and the two “victims”, Brad and Dylan, were wonderful. For the record, this does also mean I enjoyed the performances of Peter Mayer-Klepchick as Brad and Cameron Puckett as Dylan.

Groupers is the feature film debut for Anderson Conan as both a director and writer. However, this isn’t the first time making movies for Anderson Conan since he has made quite a lot of short films since beginning in 2000.

If you enjoy dark comedies with some brutal plot points, then make sure you check out Groupers. Grouper kicks off its theatrical run in Los Angeles September 27, 2019, before opening in every other city October 1, 2019.

A string of outlandish characters, including a one-eyed street thug and a philosophical squatter get caught upon this odd tale of revenge while bringing their own, ambiguous motives (and opinions) to the party as they pontificate whether homosexuality is a choice. A grad student kidnaps two homophobic high-school bullies to use as her subjects in an experiment performed at the bottom of an empty swimming pool.

Not big budget Hollywood spectacles, or the time-fillers that Netflix churns out, they are open game. Movies that are someone's hopes and dreams, made of their own sweat and tears and money.

I honestly take no joy in putting down the hard work of someone that has done something I lack the courage to do myself. I went into this one being partial to first time feature filmmaker, Anderson Conan.

Things rubbed me as the makings of an amateur and a little rushed. The pace felt like that of a short film in which you only have a few minutes to establish premise and made me wary that this wouldn't play well as a feature length.

The protagonist and antagonists seemed like caricatures that felt dubbed down in order for the viewers to catch on.… Admittedly, my expectations were low given the problematic aspects of the premise, but the first act is legitimately entertaining with a pretty good performance from Nicole Dam bro (a dead ringer for Zosma Mamet).

First act is good then it becomes totally rushed and stupid with unnecessary characters being thrown in. Groupers are also just plain unfunny and terribly mediocre.

Considering the budget and the fact that it was a first time director, the acting and the look of the film are both impressive. Most of the complaints about this have centered around the fact that the central premise gets dropped in the third act in favor of a bunch of seemingly random events that don't totally connect.

The director, whose podcast I listen to, claims that they're missing the point. A grad student kidnaps two teenage homophones who have been bullying her gay brother and puts through a strange experiment to answer the rhetorical question “Is homosexuality a choice or a predisposition at birth?” In the style of Hard Candy.

Overall an interesting movie, act 1 is amazing and definitely gets you invested. Orin is a ridiculous distraction from the film and takes away from the concept.

I honestly take no joy in putting down the hard work of someone that has done something I lack the courage to do myself. A rewatch of the smart, funny, recent classic Groupers.

Being a fan of Anderson Conan's podcast The Film Vault for many years, I felt obligated to give his debut film a watch. Anderson shows some directing skills but the script here is the real weak point.

It's sloppy and head scratching at times and I don't think it accomplished it's intended purpose, if there even was one. Groupers did have some funny moments and Nicole Dam bro and the guy who played Orin were the standouts out in the cast.

I'm glad Anderson got to make his film and his style shows throughout. And that increase is itself handled in a fairly messy way, delighting in ostensibly comic anarchy for the sake of it, feeling more like a juggler showing off how many objects he can work with, rather than a storyteller allowing complications to unfold organically.

Initially, it's a small enough object: high school bros Brad (Peter Mayer-Klepchick) and Dylan (Cameron Puckett), having successfully made it to a bar with the laziest bouncer in the world, and promptly get abducted by Meg (Nicole Dam bro), the older woman they attempted to hit on. When they wake up from the drug she's doped them up with, they're tied together in an elaborate system of cables in an abandoned swimming pool behind a vacant Mansion.

The most elaborate part of the rig is the Chinese finger trap that she's used to connecting their penises, and thereon hangs the plot : Meg, it turns out, is a grad student with an especially demented plan for an experiment. Brad and Dylan, it turns out, are a pair of homophobic bullies, who've tormented her younger brother Orin (Jesse Puddles) into a suicide attempt.

So she's getting to enact revenge in the form of a teachable moment: she's hoping to have the two boys demonstrate conclusively that (as they maintain), same-sex attraction is a “choice”, proposing that if they can both sprout erections while looking into each other's eyes, they'll be able to escape the trap. This already raises at least one question that I don't think the film ever considered: if you put a flaccid penis into a Chinese finger trap, the trick to getting it back out almost certainly doesn't involve engorging it with blood.

Two jocks (Peter Mayer-Klepchick and Cameron Puckett) are abducted by a mysterious woman (Nicole Dam bro) and awaken bound together in the deep end of an empty swimming pool. They soon discover that they’ve been torturing her gay brother for years, insisting that his homosexuality is a choice, and now they have to face the consequences for their actions.

Before you start thinking that this is going to be a terrible torture porn rip off of Saw, let me assure you that there is no gore in this film. As I mentioned, the premise is a bit hard to swallow at times and might even prevent some people from giving this film a shot.

The film walks a delicate line between insanity and self-indulgence, and while it stumbles a few times it manages to put on an impressive act overall. For the most part, I found the dialogue to have a dark and keen sense of humor to it, though there were a few times when the lines felt a little unwieldy for the characters.

Still, even when I found the premise to be just a little too unbelievable for its own good, I never lost my desire to see what came next and what new problem was going to be thrown at the characters. She seems to be the only one with a good head on her shoulders and while she doesn’t quite see the forest for the trees when it comes to the events of the film, her snark and slightly off-kilter sensibilities endear her to the audience.

Myer-Klepchick and Puckett start the film off weak, but as things progress their characters quickly become more interesting simply because while they might seem like the villains, it’s revealed that none of the people involved are saints. However, I found the director of photography, Milan Janice ’s work to be invaluable when it came to adding legitimacy to the film.

In contrast, I found a few of the transitions between scenes to be a bit off-putting, feeling more like the film was coming back from a commercial break rather than trying to portray the passage of time. Overall, the technical aspects of Grouper provide a solid foundation for this incredibly strange story.

In the end, I found Groupers to be a crazy tale filled with colorful characters vaguely reminiscent of writer Carl Hansen ’s Florida Noir style. I would say that while it has won a few awards, I don’t believe it is going to get the recognition or attention that it deserves, it’s a solid movie and more importantly, it’s a fun one.

Design Upgrade: The Bubble Guppies have legs, unlike in the original show. Big Bad: Mr Grouper, Mona, and Molly are the last of the robots to die.

Nightmare Fuel: Mia causes this by standing in the dark with a robot leg and an eye dangling out of her socket. Hell-bent on retribution the wild, comical and crazy movie Groupers gets a wide release on October 1st and it’s insane.

Just in time to kick off the Halloween month, the film has some good acting from the main character and a couple of support roles as well. Two friends Brad (Peter Mayer-Klepchick) and Dylan (Cameron Puckett) who are both school chums and big men on campus enter a bar and head straight for Meg (Nicole Dam bro) the nearest good locking female.

Setting up this diabolical revenge scheme that will be filmed and sent out on the web, Meg starts to torture the young men in ways you would not imagine, especially since they are homophobic.

A good rule of thumb for filmmakers, as far as this kind of movie goes, keep it as close to an hour and 30 minutes as possible.
