The Friendship Game‘s plot synopsis: “The Friendship Game horror-thriller film follows a group of teens as they come across a strange object that tests their loyalties to each other and has increasingly destructive consequences the deeper into the game they go. The director adds: “I’ve always approached The Friendship Game as an addition to the Cosmic Horror pantheon as it’s a cerebral genre that explores the intangible madness of self, which is an idea that has always intrigued me. Madness is felt, it’s experienced and personal, so the story comes from within the characters themselves allowing the narrative to be led by internalized fears – accentuated by external pressures.”
A group of teenagers in a small town discover a strange object that tests the strength of their friendship.
RLJE will play The Friendship Game in theaters, on demand and across assorted digital platforms on November 11, 2022. Watch the trailer below to begin the game.
“The film revolves around a group of teenagers who encounter a strange object that tests their bonds to each other with increasingly destructive consequences.”
