Family Game Night

When a teenage girl invites a needy stranger over for a family dinner, things take a nefarious turn when father invites him to play a game.

From the twisted minds of writer Jon Arthur Kohan and Director Nick Ferwerda Family Game Night is a frightfully satirical romp through the world of this oddly functional suburban family.

This film has received scores of RAVE REVIEWS (see below) and will be premiering in the Toronto Indie Horror Festival in Summer 2018.
