Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.24.20] horror comedy

On paper, a movie about a ride-share, social media-obsessed man trying to become internet famous is completely uninteresting and then I watched the trailer for Eugene Kotlyarenko's Spree and I stand corrected: this could actually be fun.

Joe Keery ("Stranger Things") stars as Kurt Kunkle, a man obsessed with going viral. So he starts working for a ride-sharing company called Spree and begins to document his driving adventures but we're not talking just the oddball passengers he might occasionally pick up. Instead, Kurt stars to pull crazy stunts: running red lights and drugging his passengers. As his views go up, so do Kurt's antics and soon, he's on an all-out killing spree, running over strangers Death Race style, all captured and shared in real-time on his cellphone.

Along with Keery, the movie also stars Sasheer Zamata, David Arquette and Mischa Barton.

It's unclear how much of Spree is traditionally captured and how much is presented as cellphone video content as I expect this gimmick would get tired pretty quickly, but overall, the first trailers for the movie suggest a fun time at the movies.

Spree will open in theatres, on digital and VOD on August 14.
