Piercing

A film by Nicolas Pesce

USA, 2018, 82'

Reed says goodbye to his wife and baby son, pretending to go on a business trip. But instead of clothes, his suitcase contains a bondage kit and an ice pic. The plan is outlined: he will check in at a hotel, call an escort service, and kill an innocent prostitute. But Reed’s plan did not count on Jackie, the seductive, mysterious escort who enters his room and in an unexpected turnout foils Reeds meticulously planned intentions. As the night progresses, a devilish nightmare sets in. A dark comedy based on a book by Ryu Murakami, who also inspired Takashi Miike's classic "Audition" (1999).
