There’s something even more dangerous than the disease at play here.

Vertical Entertainment releases SAFER AT HOME to select theaters, VOD and digital platforms February 26. Directed by Will Wernick from a script he wrote with Lia Bozonelis, from a story by Wernick, Bozonelis and John Ierardi, the movie stars Jocelyn Hudon, Emma Lahana, Alisa Allapach, Adwin Brown, Dan J. Johnson, Michael Kupisk and Daniel Robaire. The synopsis: “In 2022, the coronavirus pandemic has created mass chaos in Los Angeles and turned the city into a police state. To escape the grim reality of life, a group of friends get together for an online party: a night of music, drinking, games…and drugs. To kick off the party, they collectively take a hit of what they think is molly. At first, the night is an exciting departure from the boredom of isolation, but as the drug kicks in, things go terribly wrong and the safety of their home becomes more terrifying than the raging chaos outside.”
