Official Synopsis (from IFC Films):
What would you do if a millionaire offered you a chance to solve all your life’s problems? After the tragic death of her parents, Iris (Brittany Snow) is desperate to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. Shepard Lambrick (Jeffrey Combs), a seemingly philanthropic aristocrat, expresses an interest in helping them. He invites her to an exclusive dinner party that offers the chance at untold riches. When she arrives she finds herself in a group of similarly desperate individuals from the gruff middle aged Conway (John Heard) to the dark loner Amy (Sasha Grey). They soon find themselves trapped in Lambrick’s mansion and forced to play a sadistic game of Would You Rather, where only the winner will get out alive. As the game progress Iris must decide how far she will go to save her brother… and herself. WOULD YOU RATHER is an edge of your seat horror thriller with an ensemble cast that also features Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Eddie Steeples and Charlie Hofheimer.
Jeffrey Combs is not only my favorite actor, he has to be the most underrated actor of all time! You may know him as Dr. Herbert West from Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator, but Combs has played so many characters, so insanely well you probably see him and don’t notice him on a weekly basis. The man is a true character actor and has been overlooked for many awards (and I’m sure great roles) for more than three decades!
Regardless, watch the trailer and let us know what you think below! And if you’re a true movie nerd tell us what you’re favorite Jeffrey Combs character is (extra points if it’s not Dr. Herbert West).
