UNFINISHED BUSINESS

Mary Dauterman

A male stripper unknowingly finds himself stripping for the ghosts of powerful 80s business women trapped in a purgatorial loop, celebrating their last night on earth before closing a major deal. He still wants to get paid, but he’d rather not get dismembered...

When you watch this, you will not know what hit you… in the very best way. It’s sort of like a dance party but it’s also a nightmare, and I found myself laughing out loud the whole time while simultaneously checking over my shoulder with great unease. Director Mary Dauterman’s comedic timing and knack for kooky details really set this film apart. A++ for originality. — Kath T (Programmer)
