Screener Squad: Piercing

Some people deal with their frustrations with life by playing video games. Some people rent hotel rooms and then call hookers so that they can kill them. That’s where we start with Piercing, adapted from a novel by Ryu Murakami (Audition) and directed by Nicholas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother). Reed (Christopher Abbot) has left his family at home to fulfill this dark fantasy, only to have the hooker he ordered switched out last minute by a mystery woman named Jackie (Mia Wasikowska). This causes secrets from his past to come back to the surface and then things get even weirder from there. Frank and Brad decided to take this dark journey so they can come back and report to Justin on whether this is rabbit hole is worth following. Tune in to find out!
