A wryly post-modern comedy/thriller from writer/director/lead actor BJ Novak (The Office), VENGEANCE is the story of Ben, a condescending-by-nature New York-based writer, full-time F-boy, and brand-new true crime podcaster. After the unexpected death of a woman he hooked up with, Ben is pulled to rural Texas, as he chronicles the woman’s very, very, very Texas family and their half-baked (or is it?) suspicion that there was something more to her untimely demise.

Take it from us Texans – Novak accurately captures the highly specific essence of West Texas, poking a bit of fun at the local customs (yes, there’s extended discussion of Whataburger) without losing sight of the decency and humanity of his subjects. He also mocks the tropes and cliches of modern true crime podcasts and their creators, while at the same time creating an intriguing whodunit (or wasanythingevendun) that’ll keep you guessing until the end.

“A one-of-a-kind movie that's so wide awake and sharp-edged it marks the arrival of a potentially major filmmaker.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
