It's over twenty years since I last saw it, but it made an impression on me. I'm not entirely sure I recommend it, but I'll be watching it to find out. I don't expect it to have aged well.
No spoilers: It's about a high school kid (Billy Warlock, who soon after joined Baywatch) from a wealthy family, who suspects that his nearest and dearest are up to murderous orgies in private. He sets out to find the truth. I'll leave it there.
It's a geniune treat of a movie. Few films capture the something is wrong but I don't know what vipe as well as Society. I saw it many years ago and it's hard to forget. Some of the imagery is nightmare worthy and the ending is turned up to 11.
Seeing it spoiler free is essential as the plot pulls you in. I saw it late at night for my first watch, it stayed with me for days.
It's a horror movie but so much more. It's 80s neon sleeze and bautiful people with secrets. Also reminds me of The Invitation (new movie on Netflix now) and also Parents ( I think that's what it's called)
I bought the Blu-ray on import last Christmas and it's a film which has aged like wine. It's out in the UK with a lovely front cover and well worth a buy.
