From the most innocent sounding title comes the darkest humour you will experience this year.
“To buy or not to buy the (ugly) coffee table”. This dilemma may seem perfectly anecdotal, yet the choices we make in life often lead to unpredictable paths. Jesus and Maria, a bickering couple with a newborn child, will learn this the hard way.
Do not let this title fool you! The Coffee Table is terrifying and perverted in the best way possible. Caye Casas’ unapologetic twisted mind - which we remember from the Killing God (2017) - delivers another unescapable atmosphere, in his habitual style of a “No Exit” mystery, with fully developed characters faced with unfathomable tragedy, yet placing notes of humour along the way. After its world premiere at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, the horror of The Coffee Table now comes directly into our Dutch brains where it will stick like gum in your hair, whether you like it or not! Beware!
