RED DOT MOVIE REVIEW
David (Anastasios Soulis) and Nadja (Nana Blondell) are having “movie couple” struggles. David takes them on a weekend vacation for some skiing and camping, and they do all the things city folk do to rile up the locals. Their first night out in a tent, the titular red dot appears, a laser sight from a gun, revealing that they’re being hunted by someone dangerous. The two spend the rest of the movie trying not to die and revealing terrible secrets in this Swedish version of the “city folk being hunted by the locals” thriller. Or, is it the locals? What are their secrets? Will you even care? Or, will you root for the guy with the gun? Matt, Wright, and Lewayne brave the frigid weather of the wilds of Sweden to journey along with this hapless couple so they can answer those questions, and probably some you didn’t ask, in the Screener Squad review of Netflix’s Red Dot.

Matt Foster (Screener Squad)
Matt Foster is a stand up comic, podcaster, and movie critic currently living in the greater Salt Lake City area. His lifelong love of genre film began early, when he realized they freaked out his mom. He performs (epidemics permitting) regularly on Dungeons and Comedy, a DND live play with standup comedians, and is the slightly less mustache-y half of the Nighthawks Podcast, a cinema-centric discussion cohosted by Trevor T. Trujillo.
Wright Sulek (Screener Squad, Audio Editor)
Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He’s co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. His current hosting gig is with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright is also hosting reviews with Screener Squad and editing reviews as well.
Lewayne White (Screener Squad)
Lewayne’s earliest memories are of watching movies and reading comics, which instilled in him a sense of wonder, a vivid imagination, and unrealistic expectations. It also means he spends a lot of time watching movies, writing scripts for them, and trying to get them made. He lives in the middle of middle America after landing there as a child, and has remained there mainly because he hates packing.
